PML AMRAAM 2
By popular request, here`s a smaller version of our very popular AMRAAM-3 and AMRAAM-4 kits!
The AMRAAM-2 is designed specifically for flyers that want the great flights and military styling of the AMRAAM, but for smaller flying fields, smaller motors, or smaller budgets. It`s great for your first bigger bird, introducing a youngster or B.A.R. to higher-power rocketry, or when you want to wow`em with that great F and G motor flights on a smaller flying field. Flies great with 29mm F thru I motors.
Diameter: 2.2" | Height: 42" | MMT: 29mm
Parachute: 24" | Payload: None
Fin Array: 4 main and 4 canard | Fin Thickness: 0.06"
The AMRAAM 2 is a great 1st or 2nd mid-power
kit for Pre-Cert & Level 1 flights. This rocket stands 42" tall, is 2.2" diameter and has a 4 main and 4 canard fin design. This rocket comes standard with a 29mm motor mount and can fly on F thru I motors. At ~24 oz., the 24" parachute is sized right for the stock kit to make a safe landing under most field conditions. This kit comes standard with our exclusive Linear Rail Lugs for use with 80/20 brand launch rails. The stock airframe is ideal for flights up to approx. 0.85 Mach.
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.
