  NIKE NIKE SMOKE build thread
Posted by: andrewlathrop87 - 10-16-2017, 12:43 PM - Forum: High Power - Replies (3)

After having a successful scratch built 2 stage rocket I wanted to venture into a scale 2 stage rocket. After some research I have decided to build a scratch Nike Nike Smoke. I have the "kit"(parts) ordered today. 

There is hardly any information online about a nike nike smoke. But there is a bit of info right here on the forum. This 2 stage is different then a regular nike smoke. It has just 3 fins rather than 4 fins. The nose cone is just a conical and not the traditional nike smoke nose cone. I felt like this would be a rare build. 

I got the rocket with a 75mm booster with a 54mm sustainer. The rocket will be 1/4 scale so 4 inch diameter. It will be dual deploy in both rockets. The booster will either have cable cutter or Jolly Logic Chute release. Then the sustainer will have the same possible configuration. With it being 4 inch there is more room to play with electronics. I will use a Missile Works RRC3 in sustainer for primary deployment and Perfect Flight StrataloggerCF for redundant deployment. The RRC3 will light the sustainer motor. I will have a Missileworks RTX GPS as well.

In the Booster I will have a Missileworks RRC3 for primary deployment and the Perfect Flight StrataloggerCF for redundant deployment. The RRC3 has a Aux channel for a separation charge to separate stages if need be. I am leaving that option in place. I will possible look into the new Missileworks T3 GPS tracker. What wets my whistle is the T3 is tiny compared to the RTX.

I plan the paint scheme to be the same as the diagram. 1 fin will be white, the nose cone will be red, the rest will be olive green. Should look very unique. The airframe will be "green" filament wound fiberglass. The nose cone will be "green" conical filament wound as well. I passed on the molded gel coated fins for this build. I chose 3/16 G10 for durability. I will be having this rocket go Mach. 

This will be a winter project. I suspect the rocket wont weigh a ton, so I will be able to get the rocket pretty high on "smaller motors." That term is relative lol. I an anticipate the longest 75mm motor I will fly will be the Aerotech 75/5120 case and the sustainer will probably be the Aerotech 54/2800 case. 

The rocket was built using RASAero software. I trust that software alot and it is reliable. With any rocket that will go Mach RASAero is better in my opinion.

MARS is very proud to repost this announcement from the NAR... For those of you who have flown in Geneseo, NY, you know how great it is to have this event at this field. For those of you who haven't flown here...YOU GOTTA CHECK IT OUT! We are so proud to host the NSL, and are looking forward to meeting fliers all across the country.


The National Association of Rocketry (NAR) Board of Trustees is excited to announce that the 2018 National Sport Launch (NSL) will be held in Geneseo, NY. The dates you want to reserve are Saturday through Monday, May 26 - 28, 2018, Memorial Day weekend.
The Board thanks the Monroe Astronautical Rocket Society (MARS), Section 136, for hosting! MARS was founded in 1964, and is the oldest continuously active NAR section. They are also celebrating 25 years at their legendary Geneseo, NY field, home of the “National Warplane Museum!”
The Geneseo site features:

• Camping with a truck/camper or trailer, or RV is allowed on the field but there are no hookups available- you must be self-contained.
Thank you to Event Director MaryBeth Clune and her team, they are hard at work to make this 25th Anniversary event a most memorable one. The Board appreciates your continued commitment to the NAR! For more information on MARS Club, please visit the section's website at https://marsclub.org/
