HELLCAT
By: Jason Hebert

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!

Sincerely,

Jason Hebert

NOTE: Jason's class received Rhino kits that consisted of two 9" BT-60 tubes and a tube coupler, instead of the 18" BT-60 found in the retail kit.
