I've looked, and JimZ's got nothing on it, nor does YORP. It's time to fix that.



I'm looking for scans of the instructions as well as the fins (w/ruler please). It wouldn't hurt to get some of those centering rings either.

Thanks!

Jim,
I have one of these boxed kits, but it might be a week or two before I can get to taking photos of all the parts and scan the instructions.

Yes, I know... the Vigilante was one of my favorite rockets from my high school age pre-BAR rocketry foray... but the fin planform, tube proportions, nosecone profile, all look amazingly like the Vigilante. Not sure what size tube this rocket uses, probably larger than the Vigilantes (IIRC) BT-55 tube, since it's a two motor cluster, but if you dropped the lower stage off the Vigilante and put it side by side with this one, it would appear as a virtual upscale of the Vigilante sustainer from what I can tell...

Interesting about the shock cord attachment... guess that was something that was experimented with?? I noticed upon closer inspection of the pics that your right-- no lower parts to create the "labyrinth" necessary to make it a baffle-- just an interesting shock cord attachment method, which would, I suppose, create a 'shelf' to prevent the parachute from sliding aft down the tube under thrust... but it wouldn't be hard to make into a baffle with the addition of 2-3 more of the same profile 'disks' to which the shock cord attaches...

Guess I should have explained better...

Just sayin'... OL JR

Not sure if anyone got the Estes Impulse kit plans scanned yet or not. My boxed kit is sitting on the top shelf of one of my closets and I cant get to it right now. But everything is there in the box.

Bump...

Mark Hayes (Stickershock23) has asked about this kit's sim... I lost all my research on it back in the 2016 HD crash. But I never remember finishing the sim because I never got the fins.

Again, I need scans of the fins and decals with a ruler for scale. Other flat parts would be welcomed. I've got the instructions.

So...

Anyone? Anyone???

Thanks!

I have a built rescue rocket I can take measurements of.... I can create a OR file, or just give you the fin dimensions. Whatever you prefer...

I've never had an Impulse kit, but oddly I have PART of the decal sheet. What you see in the photo is all I have. If you would like it PM your mailing address to me.
