I've always been curious about rockets and would like to find out some more info on them. Can someone give me a link to a site that would explain all the different types of rockets? I see and hear about EVO, F1 etc... My understanding is that they are RV-4s with bigger engines and different wings (among other things).

Thanks
Patrick

A Rocket usually means a Harmon Rocket which is a modified RV-4 that starts with the Vans kit and is modified with John Harmon's mods to put an IO-540 in it, clip the wings some and build up the area behind the canopy for aerodynamics. The other 'Rocket' is called an F1 Rocket. It is a fastbuild only kit developed my Mark Frederick. It is designed for the IO-540 and has either the clipped wings like a Harmon Rocket or the new "EVO" wing that Mark has developed. All 3 airplanes are AWESOME but have different stregth's and weaknesses. Go to www.teamrocketaircraft.com for a more detailed explanation, pictures, etc. This is just a quick and dirty answer.

That was the explanation I was looking for.
