With the announcement of Rocketfest XVIII, a theme was chosen - "Go Small". The guidelines for the competition was to build the smallest stable flying rocket that used an un-modified Estes motor.

Since the 13mm A3-4 and A10-3 motors are the smallest Estes motors currently in production, this is what I went with. My idea was to create a spool rocket.

I decided to create two - one using a single motor and the other, a cluster of thee motors.

How did they fly? Check out the videos after the jump!
