Default FSI Delta Dart

Does anyone have information on the FSI Delta Dart? Photos and/or a catalog page scan would be most helpful.

Thanks!

Jeff

Are you talking about the FSI Mach 1 Dart or some other FSI rocket called the "Delta Dart" ?
I have never heard of a FSI rocket called the "Delta Dart"
The Mach 1 Dart was a very small finned 21mm rocket that had a D20-7 in the sustainer and a F100-0 booster that had fins directly glued on the booster engine. The F100-0 booster slipped over the 21mm end of the D20-7.
Most doubt that this combination could actually hit Mach 1.

According to the guy that wants me to build it for him it's the FSI Delta Dart 2-stage model rocket. I'll ask him for photos of the kit.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for . Only thing I could find. Look on page 13.

Thanks. I don't know if it's that one either. He's supposed to send me photos of the kit tomorrow.

He must be talking about the FSI Mach 1 Dart.
The ONLY way you can build the 'booster' is with an un-fired F100-0 engine.
The sustainer is easy....I think the FSI dimensioned parts are still Semroc-available.
I have F100-0 and D20-7 engines, but NONE are for sale at any price.

This sounds like a munge of a couple different kits. Estes had a near minimum diameter kit called the Delta Clipper (#2067). It used HBT-1080 tubing and flew on 24mm motors.

Anyone flying this kit should keep in mind that, on anything bigger than C motors, you'll want to be sure and take a pic...so you have something to remember it by

That is, I'm pretty sure it can be lost without the need for an FSI F100-0

Default FSI Dart

Hi Readers of this fine thread....

If you look at the Facebook FSI page you will find several pics of the FSI Dart and some other fun FSI info and pictures....I AM working on the long overdue page update

For adventures in spacemodeling, fly with F.S.I.

To answer Doug, the booster for the FSI Dart is the actual F100-0 ENGINE with fins glued directly on the cardboard engine casing. The entire booster is expendable...

I have looked through all my FSI catalogs and the ninfinger site as well.
There is no FSI kit called the "DELTA Dart" there is only the "Mach 1 Dart", which later was caltalogued as simply the "Dart"
