Now with Laser Cut Fins and more!
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
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.

||This FlisKit's Corona kit reminded
me of the cool 70's and 80's Estes kits. It's not just one you glue together and slap on
|the launch pad. It
takes thinking and a little skill. It's fun to build, and it provides a nice reward when
you are done. I see no way of improving it at all. It's a super kit for the price, as all
components and instructions are excellent. Overall, I give it a 5/5. - Greg D.
||I like all of them, (refering
to the picture below, showing a collection of model rockets.) but that Fliskits
Corona is boss. -Ken
