Bulk rockets for youth

Postby Pawys » Wed Aug 28, 2019 12:53 pm

Hello everyone

We have about 20 Scouts wanting to launch some rockets.

Something small and fun they can decorate and then launch.

Maybe 10 Rockets with a few launch pads and a couple of engines each and they can share
the rocket. Or even better if could have a rocket each.

I am in Brisbane and the model stores dont seem to carry enough stock for us
of what we need. Either too big or not designed for kids.
The camp being this weekend so shipping would be too slow.

Would love some suggestions.

Thanks for any ideas.

There are some "Bulk Classroom Packs" that are available for exactly this purpose for example:
https://ausrocketry.com.au/kits/bulk-educational-packs
https://estesrockets.com/product-category/rockets/educator-bulk-packs/

But you are going to struggle to get them with 3 days notice.

Unfortunately rocketry is very much a niche hobby, so Australian retailers don't typically carry lots of stock. Most of us plan launches many months in advance.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thanks for the link, and they are local.!!

Its just a shame they dont have any educational kits in stock and don't answer their phones.

Hi Paul, happy to let you know we do have stock because we manufacture them in-house.

Sorry about the phone, been in Canberra today presenting to government about the future of air traffic management for rocket launching so we can all continue to grow this great hobby.
