It's the totally REDESIGNED for 2007 Dr. Zooch Rockets version of NASA's next manned launch
vehicle "Ares I"! Of course, they renamed what everyone likes to call "The Stick" and began
officially calling it Ares I, but it's still cool. We've taken our last year's Ares I kit and completely
redesigned it to better reflect NASA's current design and to make it an easier build.
. . .as well as our trademarked FlameFins for stability.
The kit comes with a more Ares I-like nosecone and LAS. . .
This kit is good for someone who has some experience building and
flying model rockets but it can also be built by a beginner who has
time and patience. It is 18 mm powered and a C6-7 will take this
vehicle as high as 1,500 feet at a speed of more than 400 feet per
second (standard day, advanced builder, your results may vary).
When finished, the kit stands ~19.5 inches tall, it is a single stage
rocket with parachute recovery. The kit comes with wraps to make it
look just as you see here with only minor painting required. Instead
of just getting a look at the future through cool NASA graphics, now
you can actually beat them to the future! That’s right, you can fly
NASA’s next generation of manned boosters before it is ever off the
drawing board! The real Ares I will be a Shuttle Derived Launch
Vehicle that uses a single shuttle Solid Rocket Booster and a liquid
fueled second stage. The Ares I is proposed to send the new Crew
Exploration Vehicle into earth orbit. Of course professional
astronauts will climb on top of anything and be shot into space and
the Ares I pretty much w will peg their Anything-O-meter.
