Black Brant VB Sounding Rocket
An excellent semi-scale model of the Canadian Black Brant VB sounding rocket.
It can be flown on G, H & I motors and is the easiest to build scale rocket we have to offer. To use 29mm motors in a 38mm mount, purchase the optional HAMR-38-SET and the HAMR-38/29-ADPTR.
For you old school PML fans, the piston system is no longer included with this kit. It's available for purchase separately here: Piston System Kit

The Black Brant VB is another easy to build kit for Pre-Cert & Level 1 flights. This rocket stands 51" tall, is 2.5" in diameter and has a 3 swept-back fin design. This rocket comes standard with a 38mm motor mount and can fly on G thru I motors. At ~32 oz., the 28" parachute is sized right for the stock kit to make a safe landing under most field conditions. This kit comes standard with our RB-1000 rail guides for use with 80/20 brand launch rails. The stock airframe is ideal for flights up to approx. 0.85 Mach.
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 consult with a NAR or Tripoli certified member to ensure your flights are fun and safe.
