Exclamation New Design -- GOONY O'Rhino

I had to look up the spelling, but the Estes catalog lists these oddball rockets as "GOONYBIRDS." So regardless of whether you call them "Goonies," "Gooneys," or (as Carl does) "Groonies," here's my first attempt at surrendering to the mostly incurable condition.

With Semroc releasing the Centuri Orion, that twisted around in my brain to "O'Rhino."

While some purists will note that I'm not using the stock 7.5" long BT-60 from a Baby Bertha (although I *did* use the PNC-60MS), I did what I had to in order to make this design stable. So the 11" tube *is* an official Estes length, with a designation of BT-60D.

Have fun!

Trim it out with some wraps.

Next, you should tackle the "Goon-Thena"...
