MiniCubes on Rockets

MiniCubes on Rockets! The compact size of a MiniCube allows it to be launched on model rockets. The idea is to get students flying MiniCubes on their own rockets and when they are ready for the next step up, they can send their cube to us for a flight on balloon to the edge of space.

To test it we bought a Estes Maxi Alpha III rocket from the hobby store and put a MiniCube on it. After the Away 118 and 119 flights we sent the rocket and MiniCube skyward. It flew great.
