Perhaps you have heard about it, and maybe you wondered what a strange activity this may be. Model rocketry, also known as space modelling, is a type of aero-modelling which consists of building and flying models representing missiles and launchers. These models fly only vertically and are recovered by a parachute so as to be able to fly again for an infinite number of times. They are propelled by commercial mini rocket engines, extremely safe and intended only for this hobby.
How are these model rockets made
Model rockets are made with usual modeling techniques, using only lightweight materials such as cardboard, balsa, or plywood.
There are hundreds of kits on the market suitable for modellers with any skill level, accessories such as launch pads and parachutes, building parts for the construction of personal projects and electronic devices for flight data recording. Small or large as they can be, model rockets flight always follow the same pattern: the motor starts and pushes the model as long as its fuel is not finished, then the model continues to rise for inertia and once it comes to the top of the trajectory, the parachute is ejected. In fact, an essential feature is that the rocket model is always recovered after the flight.
