AGM-256 Pit Bull
The AGM-256 Pit Bull features true Air Force like styling that is sure to command attention on the flight line!
The Pit Bull is 35" tall and 2.6" in diameter. The Pit Bull weighs in at 29 ozs. This kit is also designed to fly on high impulse F and G motors for Pre-Cert flights and most H and I motors for Cert 1 flights. Pit Bull comes with a 38mm motor mount as standard equipment.
To use 29mm motors in a 38mm mount, purchase the optional HAMR-38-SET motor retainer and HAMR-ADPTR-38/29.
Diameter: 2.56" | Height: 35" | MMT: 38mm
Parachute: 24" | Payload: None
Fin Array: 4 main and 4 canards | Fin Thickness: 0.06"
Below you will find a number of upgrade options. Upgrading the parachute size may be necessary if you intend to build heavy or have a hard landing surface (i.e. gravel, pavement, desert playa, etc.). Some motors will accelerate this rocket to transonic or even supersonic velocities. Under these conditions, this kit may require the fin upgrade, foam encapsulation of the fin root, as well as other advanced construction skills.
It is prudent to sim your kit/motor combination using the actual weight of your finished model to determine max velocity, altitude, ejection delay, etc. This will allow you to make an informed decision when selecting a suitable motor for your rocket. Please download and read the PML FAQ and/or consult with a NAR or Tripoli certified member to ensure your flights are fun and safe.
