Bonnie Model Rocket Kit
- In stock items ship within 1 business day.
Rocketry Works’ Bonnie model rocket is named after a wonderful woman named Bonnie, whose last wish was to fly on a rocket. It was in her will. So her husband reached out for a rocket that can fly in local parks on a C or a D motor and carry a small payload of Bonnie’s ashes aloft. The classic 3 fins and a nose cone design make “Bonnie” a great model for flying 18mm or 24mm motors from C11 through E impulse, reaching altitudes of 200 ft to 1,600 ft. The 250 gram (9 ounce) dry weight of this rocket requires a 3/16 inch launch rod. The kit features a pre-slotted airframe tube, laser cut plywood centering rings and through-the-wall fins, and a plastic 24mm motor retainer. A balsa nose cone and a 24 inch nylon parachute connect to the airframe with 12 feet of 235 pound Kevlar shock cord. An optional motor block is included for Estes black powder 24mm motors that is not required for composite motors.
