Build History

  • 03/10/2006 – Purchased Red River Rocketry Zip from Red River Rocketry for $7.25 (Retail – $7.25)
  • 07/03/2006 – Took pictures of package, opened package and took pictures of fin stock. instructions, decal and other components.
  • 07/08/2006 – Screwed screw eye into base of balsa nose cone, removed it, applied guled to hole and screwed it in place. Cut a thin piece of Kevlar the same length as the original piece and CA’d it to one fin within the fillet. Filleted the remaining fin joints with thick CA. Taped the Kevlar in place to hold it while the CA dried.
