I am giving a model rocket building session at MUSECON this summer! Not one, but two different models each!

Here is what the Musecon web page has to say:

Building and Flying Model Rockets
Model: BA-BFMR-18
8 Units in Stock

time: Saturday 1:30 - 2:45 pm AND Sunday 10:30 - 11:45 am
locations: Edwardian / Hampton / Outside
Robert Alway
We will build and fly two model rockets, each having a different recovery system. Along the way we will learn how rockets and their recovery systems work. Fee includes two model rocket kits and engines. Also included are building supplies and use of launching equipment at the convention. Ages 8 and up. Note: under age 10 need parental supervision. *** This course has 2 parts; session 1 on Saturday, session 2 on Sunday (weather dependent) ***

Current Mood: excitedexcited

That sounds like a cool workshop! I hope it goes well.

Is "recovery system" a parachute?

A parachute is one of several possibilities. I'm sure Bob will happily elucidate the ones he'll use in his workshop.

One of the recovery systems will be our patented backslider rocket glider. I haven't decided what the other will be yet.

Oh, that sounds interesting. What keeps the glider wings from throwing the rocket off course as it zooms up? Or are they hidden in the body and pop out when it goes into free fall?

Wings on a glider? How charmingly quaint.
