A safe place to fly using guidelines from the National Association of Rocketry Safety Code
I have a PML AMRAAM 4. It’s one of my favorite rockets. But I need a lot of space to fly it. Then I discovered the Rocketarium AMRAAM and I grabbed it. It is an easy build with pre-cut basswood fins. I also like the scale tailcone and the fin fastener details. I added the conduit detail. So, I now have an AMRAAM to launch at the local schoolyard.
