Kits YOU Build!

Model Rocket Rail Guides

Rail guides can be used to replace traditional launch lugs. They help to guide the rocket on its first few feet of flight until sufficient speed is developed for the fins to stabilize the model. At least two should be used per rocket.

The advantage of rails over a normal launch rod is that a rail is generally much stiffer than a rod and you will almost never get "rod-whip" as the rocket leaves the launcher. Rails are becoming more common at launches for heavier mid and high-power rockets, and can even be used for smaller models if desired. Many clubs and organized launches now provide rails, but be sure to check the availability before planning on flying a model with rail guides.

1010 size rails are the most common and can be used with most mid and high-power rockets.

Testimonials

I must say that I was very impressed with the WAC Corporal kit I bought from you guys.  The quality of the components, particularly the recovery system, was so much higher than Estes. I had built that rocket when I was a kid, back in 1968, from an Estes kit, and still love the rocket.  Yours is so much better:  the kevlar cord, the way it is attached, and the shock cord are so much better, as is the nose cone.I will be buying other of your scale kits because of this.  I don’t think you do enough to tout the higher quality components.
Thanks for everything. - George P.
