Unassembled FTC (Fluorescent Tube Cover) rocket parts kit. FTC tube is NOT included. FTC tubes can be found at most home center / hardware stores or search online for "fluorescent bulb guard" for T12 size bulb (OD diameter 1 5/8 inch / 42mm). FTC tubes are available in 4 ft. and 8 ft. lengths usually clear acrylic, but they can be painted. All the other parts needed to build an FTC rocket are contained in this kit. Loctite PL 3X Premium Polyurethane Adhesive or a 2 part epoxy are required for assembly. Watch video below for comprehensive assembly, configuration, and launch instructions.

FTC Rocket Parts Kit includes:

  • 2 x StratoCap - FTC Endcap
  • 1 x Nosecone (soda bottle cap)
  • 1 x Rail Guides
  • 1 x StratoFins
  • 1 x Nozzle
  • 1 x Square Ring

FTC Rocket Benefits:

  • Requires no additional nose cone
  • More aerodynamic than a 2-liter bottle because it is narrower
  • Amount of water used can be varied a lot without adverse launching results
  • Not easily blown off a field due to wind since it is skinny
  • Back gliding recovery (descends on its side and requires no parachute)
  • 2 full proof methods for deploying a parachute
  • Screw an expansion chamber on top to increase volume
  • Screw a payload container on top for CanSat or other application

WARNING: Acrylic FTC tubes will only contain 120 PSI safely. Polycarbonate FTC tubes will contain 145 PSI safely.
