Static Probe

Static Probe

November entry #2, the Static Probe by Jim Pierson of Washington.

The email from Jim has this to say:

Hello all at Fliskits,

This is Jim Pierson and I wish to participate in the Fliskits DESIGN OF THE  MONTH contest.  I have been in rocketry for five years now and have decided  to get my designs out in the open and see what happens. This particular  design I have named the STATIC PROBE. As you can see it is a somewhat  unusual futuristic design. It has proven flight stable, however I live in  the rainforest of Washington State and recovery has proven to be a  challenge. I usually stick to low altitude flights if I want a successful  recovery.   Any question you have about this particular design I will be  honored to answer.   Also if what I submit does not meet the DOM entry rules, please let me know so I can correct it.   I am sending the attached pages to complete my entry.

I also want to thank all you folks at Fliskits for all of your great rocketry designs.  I have been keeping a close watch on your progress, and I approve greatly of what you are doing.  I have also noticed Mr. Flis on the Rocketry Forum and Oldrockets Group, and have chatted with him a few times.  Keep up the good work.  And by the way are you hiring part time rocket designers?? (We have been amazed at the number of times our wonderful customers ask us this question.  Believe me, we are flattered!   Unfortunately no, we are not hiring at this time smile.gif (372 bytes) )

Thank You.

James Pierson
