Steve Anderson's second feature at HellFire this year is for all you fans of the school down south (relatively speaking). This is a Polecat Aerospace 4" diameter Nike-Smoke. Steve has named it the Nike-Ute but just to stir things up Steve likes to add "In reality the University of Utah is the real BYU as it was founded by Brigham Young in 1850." We'll leave that discussion for out on the salt.

The rocket will fly for the first time at Hellfire either on the I115 or a J135. he has not decided yet. Depending on conditions and performance he also has a K185 and K700 that he may fly it on. The kit features a fiberglass nosecone, pre-fiberglassed and slotted body tube, Machined Baltic Birch fins and rings, This rocket has a built weight of only 3.5 pounds, is 4" in diameter and a height of about 58". GO UTES!
