Appendix C. The Projects in This Book

This book shows you how to build a dizzying array of rockets, launchers and trackers. Each was selected to teach a specific concept in rocketry, such as a particular construction technique or a special recovery method. This appendix gives you a quick scorecard so you can quickly find a project to explore some aspect of rocketry.

While these rockets cover the basics, there are a lot of variations on the themes they cover. Each chapter discusses alternative methods of doing what you just learned. For example, the helicopter and glider recovery chapters also discuss different methods of implementing helicopter or glider recovery.
