Big Performance on Inexpensive Motors

The Sky-Torpedo kit from DynaStar Mid-Power Model Rockets is awesome! What makes it one of my favorites is that it sports awesome graphics designed by Shrox!

Like the other kits from "DynaStar Mid-Power Rockets", the Sky-Torpedo 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. The lighter weight rockets fly faster and higher.

How 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!

 

What Makes This A Skill Level 2 Rocket Kit?

From a building standpoint, this model is quite easy. It uses the traditional construction techniques you are familiar with from building smaller model rockets. And the instructions are absolutely phenomenal; there are lots of excellent illustrations that clarify the text.

Note: While the illustrations are superb, we still recommend actually reading the written portion of the instructions. You'll pick up a lot of new building tips that can be used on other rockets.

If you've built models before, you'll find that the Sky Torpedo is going to be easy for you. Just because it is big doesn't mean that it is more challenging. It's not. You'll find that the hardest step is painting the rocket. The great thing about this hobby is that you can paint your rockets to any pattern you want; so it can be easy or really detailed and complex. The choice is yours.

 

Kit Features

Based on the BT-80 tube!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 - This is a big reason why it is so easy to make this rocket so awesome looking. It is just a matter of applying the sticker-like decals.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.Spring-steel engine retainer clips allow you to swap out engines between flights in just milliseconds. It is really that fast!Large 1/4 inch Launch Lug - Because this is a bigger model, you'll have a larger lug on the side of the rocket. This is used with mid-power size launch rods, to stabilize the rocket so it doesn't sway in the wind prior to launch.

Rip Roar Lift-off.The large 32" diameter plastic parachute that comes with the kit brings the rocket down slowly for a nice soft touchdown. The canopy on the parachute is a colorful black and yellow, which is easy to see in the sky, and when it lands on the grass. You'll also find that the chute has tear-proof adhesive rings that reinforce the points on the canopy where the shroud lines attach. These greatly strengthen the parachute canopy, making it practically impossible to damage the parachute. Because this is a big rocket, the parachute is an octagon shape, instead of being a hexagon. Therefore, it has two more suspension lines, meaning it can carry a heavier rocket down to the ground.
