Little V2

ImageThis is the original Overmoe V2. They call it the "Little V2" but there's nothing little about it. Based on an original Hott Rockets kit, this V2 is 9.25" in diameter and weighs in at 65 lbs when loaded!

This craft flies on an M1419 and hits about 7000 ft each time. This V2 Has flown about 9 times all on the M1419 motor. Brad did his level 3 on this rocket. Even after all of these flights it still has only a few scratches on it for damage.

Von Braun

vonbraun3Steve Anderson is planning on staying busy at HellFire this year, he has lots of big projects. His biggest has been named "Werner von Braun" in honor of the Chief V-2 Scientist. The rocket is a PoleCat Aerospace kit and weighs in at 11 pounds empty and could weigh nearly 20 pounds with motor, recovery and electronics. Steve is planning on using dual electronics with PRM to support dual deployment. He's considering his Rocketman R7 parachute but is not sure if it will be big enough.

His engine choices at this time are the J570, K185 and K700.  He hasn't settled on which one quite yet but he does have the K motors ready to go.

Sir Winston

ImageKnown as the "Sir Winston," it definitely shares something in common with its namesake. This is an original Hott Rockets kit with an 11.5" diameter and weighing in at 105 lbs loaded!

The rocket flies on an Aerotech N2000 and reaches about 8000 ft each time. The Overmoes have flown this monster about 6 times all on same N2000 motor. The rocket is recovered on 2 chutes at apogee one on body and one on the nosecone.

Alan Overmoe certifed on this rocket. It did suffer some significant damage after its flight in 2003 but it made up for it in 2004 with an absolutely beautiful flight on an EX motor at Hellfire 10 and every HellFire since. The rocket again suffered some damage at HellFire 13 but they expect it to be back in top form for HellFire again this year.
