July 18, 2013     RCS, Inc. and Quest Aerospace, Inc. Announce Merger

    RCS Rocket Motor Components (RCS), Inc. President Gary C. Rosenfield announced today that the two companies have successfully completed a corporate merger. Quest Aerospace, Inc. will be closing its Colorado facility and moving its operations to the RCS facility in Cedar City, Utah. Rosenfield will remain as RCS President, and Bill Stine current President of Quest will become Vice President of RCS.

    “The two companies have nearly identical manufacturing operations and the merging of the two operations into one is a major cost savings for us”, said Quest Aerospace President Bill Stine.

    Quest is widely known as a leader in the beginner and education markets for model rockets. Its kit designs and rocket motors are geared for the entry-level rocketeer. The RCS/AeroTech line of mid to high-power products starts right where the Quest line leaves off. “We will be the only hobby rocket company in existence that can bring a fourth grader into the hobby and carry him all the way through to an ‘M’-powered Level 3 certified flight and beyond with our own products” said Rosenfield.

    Rosenfield and Stine expect the move from Colorado to Utah should be complete within thirty days and customers should see very little interruption of shipping.



Sirius Rocketry Eraticator




   05/02/2013 NEW! from the Sirius Rocketry Transition Series THE ERADICATOR!    

The Eradicator is the latest in Sirius Rocketry's "Transition Series" of kits; kits that can be flown on model rocket motors, yet can also be flown on high-power motors to help you transition into high-power rocketry. The Interrogator G was the first example of such a kit, the Eradicator is the latest additon to the line. It flies great on F and G motors, and plenty high on them too. But if and when you want try for your Level 1 high-power certification, the Eradicator can comfortably fly on an H motor with its 29mm mount!  Find more information here: The New Eradicator from Sirius Rocketry!






I had the opportunity to visit the Nike Missile Site HM-69 on Veteran's Day of 2012 down in Everglades National Park. It is one of four Missile Batteries that were erected in 1962 in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis of that same year in South Florida. The site has been recently restored and an actual Nike Hercules was recently restored and is on display. The tour offers an insight of the events leading up to, during, and after the Missile Crisis. I had the opportunity to meet and talk to several servicemen that were stationed on that site as well as other sites across the United States. For further information on tours please visit: Everglades National Park Nike Missile Site for dates and times. For an excellent resource on the Cold War in South Florida, visit: Cold War and Air Defense in South Florida. For more information on Nike Hercules and Ajax Missiles visit the Nike Historical Society. Don't forget to check out my images of the tour and my Nike Missile HP model rocket build.
