The Sprint ABM is an exact scale model of the Sprint Anti-Ballistic Missile first flown in the 1960's. This model of the Sprint ABM is 21 inches long and 3.5 inches wide at the base and weighs 210 grams without a motor installed. An internal launch lug design will avoid unstable liftoff. In addition, the recovery system includes rear pop-pod recovery that eliminates the requirement for a separate nose cone. Other kit features include D/E motor propulsion and post-assembly provision for added nose weight. The conical airframe is pre-slotted and the complete kit includes step-by-step instructions. At $25.00 this kit was a unique value that included the design file used during project development.

Notice - This is a challenging rocket to build and to fly. The Sprint ABM applies the methods commonly used to build high power rockets.

Thank you.
