HotRod Rocketry Discovery

This is another of the rocket trio that I won from EMRR's Quarterly Rocket Giveaway. Thanks Nick!

The Discovery is a 'modular concept rocket', that features three interchangeable fin units. It is part of HotRod's Educators Series and is intended either builders who have previously built a rocket or newbies under the guidance of an experienced builder. It flies on 18mm motors and recovers via a 'chute. You can always make additional fin units too.

Here is the completed rocket showing one of the three fin units. I'm not super excited about 3FNC modrocs so I'm going to try to think up something more interesting for other fin units.
