    Crayon Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits Crayon Model Rocket Kit

    Everybody remembers coloring when they were a child and many of us still color, be it with crayons, color pencils, markers or just our imagination. The FlisKits Micromaxx Crayon rocket kit takes the universally recognized crayon shape and turns it into a model rocket, ready to color your imagination and the skies above your next launch!

    These tiny, near 1:1 scale replica's of actual crayons will tickle the kid inside you as you construct and then fly these little wonders. Standing less than 5 1/4" tall and only 3/8" in diameter, these little guys make the most of the small Micromaxx motors. Constructed from conventional model rocket materials, the kit comes with a custom, laser-printed construction paper body wrap which adds to the authentic look of these Crayon rockets. The rockets feature clear plastic fins and a removable fin unit. Sitting on the table, without its fin unit, you would be tempted to pick one up and begin coloring your favorite picture.

    The kit includes a custom turned balsa nose cone, body tubes, centering rings, engine block, launch lug, and fin stock. Even a Kevlar shock cord and a mylar red and silver streamer are provided.

    This model is rated as a Skill Level 2 model. Previous model building experience is needed to successfully build and fly the FlisKits Micromaxx Crayon rocket kit.

    Kit colors will vary.

    Decaffeinator Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits Decaffeinator Model Rocket Kit

    The Decaffeinator is a first in the world of model rocketry. Not that this is the first foam cup rocket ever made. But it IS the first foam cup rocket KIT ever made! 

    Foam cup rockets seem to be a product of the minds of rocketeers in the North East USA but their actual origins are not known. First seen by Jim Flis at a Pearl River MODroc conference, Jim has explored these beasts for many years trying new and different designs every time. They are fun to build and always get attention at the launch field.


    Decim8 Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits Decim8 Model Rocket Kit

    DooDad Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits DooDad Model Rocket Kit

    Featuring FlisKit's "Jig Tech" fins, the dooDad is super easy to build, low cost, and extra strong (which may be important when in the hands of excited beginners).

    The use of basswood provides a much stronger fin than that found with balsa. This helps to eliminate the problem of broken fins on launch day with your class or youth group. Another nice feature of this kit is the use of an engine hook for positive motor retention. This is an important aspect to a beginner kit but is rarely found in minimum diameter models as there is no way to secure the hook in place. This problem is solved because of the nature of the Jig Tech fin unit. The hook is simply trapped under the fin unit and help firmly in place.

    Drake Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits Drake Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKit's Drake features large, forward swept wings with a stylish dorsal fin and ramjet tube along with a large (1.637" Diameter) parachute compartment to ensure clean ejection of your recovery device.

    Moderately challenging to build, the HEMV-4 requires you to cut two tubes with curved edges and interlocking slits.  Not really "hard", but it may be new to you, as a model rocketeer.  Taking your time and using fresh (sharp) tools will make this part of the build a breeze.

    U.S.S. Grissom Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits U.S.S. Grissom Model Rocket Kit

    The U.S.S. Grissom is the pride of the FlisKits fleet of model rockets! At 30.6" tall, it is the tallest mini-engine powered bird in the fleet, but that's only the start. Unlike other models that have employed ducted ejection gasses, the U.S.S. Grissom has the narrowest profile of them all, giving it one of the most graceful appearances in model rocketry today. The inclusion of solar panels and it's impressive length to diameter ratio makes this one of the most stable model rockets you'll ever fly. Add to that a highly detailed set of water slide decals and you have a model that will stand out from all the rest!

    The U.S.S. Grissom is a complex model to construct, but is not beyond even a novice modeler, as the assembly instructions allow for simplified construction, such as ellimination of the solar panels, reducing it's skill level to 3.

    US Tog Model Rocket Kit

    FlisKits US Tog Model Rocket Kit

    The US TOG is an upscale version of one of FlisKits's tiny micromaxx rockets.  The original TOG was a pip-squeak compared to this giant.  The US TOG is almost three feet long and powered by the mighty C11 and D11 motors.
    From its smaller cousin, the US TOG inherits a mix of rearward and forward swept fins/wings with wing pods, ram jets and all sorts of sloped (scalloped) tubes.  The larger size of this kit allows more complexity and detail  For example, the US TOG sports a pair of detailed ram jet tubes with ram jet intakes with intricately cut fins made from 0.025" this card stock.  This level of detail is unprecedented and results in a very sharp looking model.
