The Zephyr is a rocket kit manufactured by Apogee, one of the highest quality rocketry companies on the American market. The Apogee kits are characterized by a very high quality of materials and workmanship, detailed and very accurate instructions, completeness of components in addition to an always appealing aesthetic.
The Zephir is an excellent rocket for level 1 certification because it is large (100 mm diameter) and robust. The flight is quite slow and the altitude reached is not excessive, which makes it easier to find it after the flight. It can also fly with G engines with a thrust of at least 50 N, so you can test it before your certification flight, or simply launch it if you do not have High Power certification or if the field where you launch does not allow higher flights.
This rocket has a 38 mm motor mount, therefore you can use G reloads fro the Aerotech reloadable RMS 38/120 motor. If you use a 38/29 motor adapter (not included) you can use a wide choice of G motors, single-use and reloadables, and many 29 mm H motors.
It is made of high quality cardboard tube, with slots for the already cut fins and laser-cut wood fins with very high precision. It is easy to build, thanks to its highly illustrated manual, but still requires good construction skills and is therefore not suitable for beginners.
Recovery takes place via the included nylon parachute, which is ejected directly from the engine. The kit also contains the shock cord made of tubular nylon, and the rail buttons.
