About this title


The Classic Guide by the "Father of Model Rocketry" Now Completely Revised and up to Date... This new edition of the model rocketeer’s "bible" shows you how to safely build, launch, track, and recover model rockets—and have fun doing it. Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran model rocketeer, the Handbook of Model Rocketry, the official manual of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR), will become your well-used reference book. G. Harry Stine has been a model rocketeer since 1957 when he founded the NAR and started the first model rocket company. Stine’s Handbook, after satisfying rocket enthusiasts for nearly three decades, remains the definitive resource. Recent technological progress has had a major effect on the model rocket hobby and sport. This revised and updated edition covers such new technology as:

  • revised computer programs that use improved versions of Basic composite propellant model rocket motors
  • recently approved reloadable model rocket motors building and flying large model rockets
  • radio-controlled boost gliders and rocket gliders
  • solid-state, microchip, computer-readable modules used to measure temperature, pressure, acceleration, and airspeed
