Flis Kits Corona
The Corona has remained unchanged for over 14 years, but that has all changed! Listening to our customers, we have implemented laser cut plywood fins, longer tube coupler and the addition of a Kevlar® augmented recovery system!
The Corona was one of many designs originated for use by the New England Model Rocketry Convention. NEMROC was founded by Jim Flis and Arnie Paye in the Spring of 1983. Jim and Arnie, with their NAR Section, the Goddard Society, joined forces with CMASS (The Central Massachusetts Spacemodeling Society) to bring this, the second largest model rocketry convention ever, to model rocketeers young and old.
The Corona was designed by Jim Flis to commemorate the 7th, and last NEMROC convention. Sporting a long, narrow profile and unique fin arrangement, the Corona provides outstanding flights with incredible stability, to bring you many hours of rocketry fun.
