Jason Hebert of New Hampshire presents us with
his kit-bash design made from the parts of several FlisKits Rhino kits!
Jason provided this information with his entry:
To whom it may concern:
Earlier in November my teacher bought a package of FlisKits Rhino
rockets for the class to build and fly. When we discovered that there was one extra
I decided to challenge myself by design and building a double stage rocket. I used
only parts from the two kits.
First I connected 3 of the fourth body tubes using two of the
couplers. The forth tube I cut down to the length of the complete motor mount and
glued it in. I made a second motor mount and glued it into the upper section.
I then modified a tube coupler by cutting it in half and gluing it in the top of the short
section and the HELLCAT was bourn. I have flown it several times and it delivers a
spectacular and satisfying flight!
NOTE: Jason's class received

18" BT-60 found in the retail kit.
