Chapter 3. The Level 1 Rocket Continued

Parts and Tools

With the design of the rocket in hand, it’s easy to generate a parts list. Table 3-1 shows the parts you will need, including part numbers from the LOC Precision website. LOC Precision is one of several good companies that sell parts for high-power rockets. We’ll try parts from a few different companies as we build the rockets throughout this book.

You can make a lot of substitutions for the parts listed, and you will need some basic tools and supplies to build your rocket, too (see Table 3-1). Be sure to read the chapter all the way through before you decide what to order.
