Rec.Models.Rockets Frequently Asked Questions: PART 2 OF 14


NAMES AND ADDRESSES

Last update: May 29, 2002

This portion of the r.m.r FAQ is maintained by Wolfram v.Kiparski.
If you notice any errors, inconsistencies, or ommissions, kindly email
Wolf, at rmrfaq@n2netmail.com so that it can be corrected.

---------------------------------------

---------------------------------------
2.2 What are the addresses of some the rocketry manufacturers and suppliers?
Do they offer catalogs?

Here is a list of rocketry manufacturers and suppliers. The list is
divided
into a number of categories. Each address appears only once, but may in
fact qualify to fit into more than one category. The rocketry industry is
rather dynamic, so if this list is six months old, it may be out of date.
The editor(s) of this FAQ can not verify if the companies are, or are
not in
business. Reasonable attempts have been made at completeness, though it
is reasonable that this list may not be complete. If you notice any
errors or omissions, kindly email Wolf at rmrfaq@n2netmail.com, and the
corrections will be applied ASAP.

2.2.3 Miscellaneous suppliers

For those of you who like to buy their tubing, balsa, and other materials
in bulk, this section may have the supplier that you are looking for.
Also included are suppliers of the kind of goods that many of us find
useful for model and high power rocketry. While there are very many
sources of materials from which one can build rockets, and there is
no way that a
list can completely cover this broad category. Here is a list of
companies that have been mentioned on r.m.r., or have been recommended to
the author. No company listed in this section is a rocketry specialty
company. Many of the companies in the preceding sections also sell "raw
materials," so rocketry-related questions are best directed to them.

2.3 What are some good books to read to learn more about model and high power
rocketry?

Handbook of Model Rocketry, Sixth Edition
G. Harry Stine
Synopsis:
THE handbook on model rocketry. Covers just about everything you need
to get started. Good tips for experienced modelers as well. Sixth
edition was published March 1994. Available from several sources,
including NARTS.

Basics of Model Rocketry, 2nd edition
Douglas R. Pratt
Kalmbach Books, 1993
Synopsis:
A general introduction to model rocketry.
The 2nd edition is highly revised and has become available as of Jan.
1993. The first edition is very Estes/Centuri/FSI oriented. The
second edition includes sections on composite motors, Aerotech, NCR
and other more recent manufacturers.

Model Rocket Design and Construction
Timothy S. Van Milligan (102374.2533@compuserve.com)
Kalmbach Books, 1995
Synopsis:
120 pages, 16 chapters, 240 illustrations, 40 photographs;
This book is geared towards modelers wanting to know more about the
art and science of building better rockets. Includes chapters on
design, improving performance, constructions and other topics.
The coverage of glider and helicopter recovery, the glossary, and
construction and repoir techniques is very good.

69 Simple Science Fair Projects with Model Rockets: Aeronautics
Timothy S. Van Milligan (102374.2533@compuserve.com)
Published by Apogee Components
ISBN 0-9653620-0-0
Synopsis:
104 pages pages consisting of 5 chapters and 3 appendicies;
including
83 illustrations. Soft cover with 4-color artwork.
This book contains topic ideas for rocketry related science fair
projects
from very simple experiments that can be done in an afternoon, to some
complex ones that require more sophisticated measuring equipment. Each
project begins with some background information that explains why the
topic is important and should be researched. Most projects also give a
starting point that tell what type of equipment may be needed, and
also
where the experimenter should go for additional background research.
This is not a cookbook approach, as the actual experiment must be
designed
by the researcher.
