Simulation Files for Make: High-Power Rockets

Make: High Power Rockets
Construction and Certification to Thousands of Feet and Beyond

This new book from Maker Media shows you how to build and fly high-power rockets that use H and larger motors while you get your high-power rocket certifications. You’ll learn how to design and build rockets that will stand up to the rigors of high-power flight. Starting with a smaller 4 foot tall rocket, you’ll work up to a 7 foot fiberglass rocket that can fly 13,000 feet high and easily break the sound barrier on a small M motor.

The links below download Open Rocket simulation files for the rockets in the book. See the book itself for full construction details.

Make: Rockets
This book from Maker Media covers all aspects of building and flying solid propellant model rockets through 40 N-s total impulse, water rockets, and air rockets. You will learn everything you need to design, build, and track rockets, including multistage rockets, rocket gliders, cluster rockets, and egg lofters. You will also learn to build launchers and trackers and, if you like, explore the math and science behind rocket flight.
Building iPhone and iPad Electronic Projects
Learn to use the sensors built right into your iPhone and iPad, as well as connect external sensors using Bluetooth LE, WiFi and HiJack. Try these with fun projects like hacking a remote control car, controlling servos and building a plant moisture meter. No Macintosh is required for programming! The book uses a less expensive and easier to use technical programming language called techBASIC that runs right on your iPad or iPhone.
Program right on your iPad or iPhone with this graphics and matrix rich technical programming language. And it’s as easy to learn as BASIC--because that’s what it is!

“Scientists and hobbyists who want to use their iOS devices as tricorders now have a new tool to help them to bring that dream to life...”
