Default Ace Rocket Manufacturing

Ace Rocket Manufacturing of San Fernando, CA was run by Korey Kline and was instrumental in the formation of what we now call HPR.

Here are some random artifacts of that company.

PNC-39 and modified for the Sonic Shark kit.

Ace logo:



Ace Cantata rocket.



Ace Cantata rocket.



Ace Monocopter "rocket" motor pod.



An Ace Rocket Manufacturing ad from about 1983.

Down in the lower left hand corner of the ad it says "AeroTech/ACE Division." Is this the same Aerotech that we know today?

Yes. For a while Gary was shipping the kits for Korey.

good stuff. ( begs for more )

Will be nice to see those kits return .

( working on the Fugue fin pattern, if you have anything else on the bird, let me know, I have original tubing and cone ) . ( and AIR report on the shrouds ) .

( fin pattern for the original Cantata ) ?

I'd like to see pics of the early stuff, Allegro Largo, Allegros at Lucerne ( F or G motors ). any other vintage pics you have ( has to be many ) .


Keep it coming, More Power to You !

Yes, definitely begs for more! Such as: what did that Monocopter look like? I'd love to see the whole thing!

I did some sniffing around and it appears that all most Moncopter are is a mounted rocket motor on the root end of one propeller blade, a lot of counterbalancing, and a spinning vertical takeoff.

---usually followed by laughter and bad words.

Default TRF, the weenie channel

Since I cannot post on TRF, the weenie channel to say how bogus this is, here is the thread:

http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?t=17733

The rocket plan at issue is a custom kit by HSR/Buck and NOT an Ace kit. It is not an Ace Allegro of any description.

Just historically accurate Jerry

Jerry,

I will post this info over there for posterity sake.

Was High Sierra liscensed to make the Ace line ? or did they sell some Ace/ clone some ? . I do recall the Ace line in thier catalogs, same with USR ( got my MOngrel from Buck, as I recall ) .
The one kit he had at LDRS 6 that I regret not bringing home was a Space Dynamics Aerobee, nice composite kit, wonder what ever hapened to that bird ( or Rick Loer ), would love to get my hands on one now .

keep em coming.

~ AL

ps: waiting for Jason to post the 4 cluster Mini allegro, so I can compare to my vintage rebuild one ( original kit, hung in tree for months, had to be rebuilt, original balsa cone lost )
