Estes mini rocket

Estes mini rocket 3d printed Games Toys
This simple rocket is designed for the Estes mini motors which are 13mm x 45mm. Uploading it was a quick test of minimal cost for this simple design. It was designed for a 1/8" diameter launch rod. This has been printed. It arrived with a slight curl in the fins, due to tight packaging. Shaping them in my hands brought them back to straight. I will probably thicken the fins to remedy the situation. Launch planned soon.

Looks very similar to a design I came up with in Openrocket. If you drop the launch lugs and use a tri-rod launcher, you might break the NAR record.
