|Commemorative kit of the 5th annual North East
Regional Rocket Festival (NERRF-5), the Lil' Guy
gets its name because it IS just that, a "little guy".
Besides, there was no way we'd get away with calling
this the "NERRF Rocket", regardless of where we
claim the origins of the name came from...
Featuring a stunted look as a part of her charm, and
streamer recovery for small field use, the Lil' Guy is
a great little rocket and a great transition rocket
after you've built a few Skill Level 1 kits and are
thinking of moving on to more complex Skill Level 2
The Lil' Guy requires you to cut your own fins, sand
them to shape and attach them without any fin guide
as an aid. It sounds tough, but it really isn't.
However, it is a necessary skill for many of the more
complex kits. The Lil' Guy allows you to explore
these challenges in a much simpler kit.
Furthermore, the kit includes TWO fin patterns for
you to choose from. The first (classic) has soft
curves, as can be seen in the image at left. An
alternate, much simpler fin pattern is provided if this
is going to be your first attempt at cutting fins. The
simple parallelogram offers a simple 4 sided shape
with all straight edges that can easily be cut with the
aid of a straight edge, like a ruler.
Check it out and prepare yourself for a wonderful kit
that is easy to build, fun to fly and help celebrate an
exciting rocketry event based in the north east!
That's a whole lotta fun packed into one small rocket,
but the Lil' Guy can handle it. Can you??
