Product Description

Dynastar Flying Model Rocket Kit Rising Star Payload

Big Performance on Inexpensive Motors

The Rising Star rocket kit from DynaStar Mid-Power Rockets is a beautiful introduction into the realm of mid-size rockets. It is easy to build, uses readily available "D" and "E" size rocket motors, and is a real eye-catching model that is sure to get you noticed whenever you launch it.

The big clear-plastic payload bay is what makes this model unique. It is large enough to fit almost any size payload -- even two raw eggs. Of course, you can launch other payloads as well, like an altimeter to measure how high your rocket flies; or launch a stobe light or buzzer to help you locate the rocket once it has landed.

You can even fly non-electronic payloads that are flown just for fun. Try launching a toy action figure, and make it into an astronaut. Or launch a dozen jumping grasshoppers, and see how they react to the sudden burst of speed and altitude. And you can see it, right through the clear tube! Whatever you launch, it is going to make your launch even more exciting.

While this is a big rocket, it is easy to build: it is only ranked as a skill level two in difficulty. It can be assembled by anyone that has built any other model rocket kit.

Unlike other mid-power rockets, the Rising Star is designed to fly on the less expensive "D" size black-powder rocket motors. And it will give you the same performance as other mid-power kits that require "E" and "F" size composite propellant rocket motors.

Lift-off of the Rising Star PayloaderHow do you get the same performance using smaller motors? Simple: the DynaStar brand of rocket kits use thin-wall body tubes, which are significantly lighter. So the rocket doesn't need a big motor just to get it off the launch pad. You'll save money, because you don't necessarily need to buy larger rocket motors!

The lighter weight rockets allow the rocket to fly faster and higher. It also gives some margin for carrying some payload in the cargo bay.

 

Why is this a Skill Level 2 Rocket?

Because it is big, that doesn't mean this is a harder rocket to assemble. It has all the same classic parts you are familiar with that are used in smaller rockets. In this rocket, those parts are just a bit bigger. In fact, because the parts are bigger, they are easier to handle by kids!

 

Kit Features

Create Awesome Smoke Stacks!Clear Plastic Payload Tube - This is the largest see-through payload tube ever made for rocketry! Whatever payload you put into the rocket, you can see while it is sitting on the launch pad. So you can check on its condition right before you launch the rocket.

Plastic Nose Cone - The smooth plastic nose cone requires no finishing other than a coat of paint. Its 5:1 ogive shape is very efficient for high speed rocket flights.

Colorful pressure-sensitive decals - It is easy to make this rocket great looking. Paint the bottom yellow, and the nose cone red. Then it is just a matter of applying the sticker-like decals that make the rocket awesome looking.

Die-cut balsa wood fins - Balsa wood is very lightweight and can be airfoiled by sanding, to reduce the drag forces on the kit. This makes the rocket zoom higher and faster into the sky.

The model also comes with a high-strength, Kevlar® Shock cord. Kevlar® is six times stronger than steel, and is also fire proof. It can easily withstand the high heat of ejection, ensuring the rocket descends as a single piece. This makes for a very durable rocket that can be launched again and again.
