Lower frontal drag than rail buttons!!
Rail launch systems are great. In our view, they beat the old launch
rods hands down. But frankly it can be a pain to attach those little
guides onto your rocket. Just screwing them into the bodytube won't work
. You usually have to contrive some backing plate or try to screw into a
centering ring - - and that can be a very thin target to hit!
NOT ANY MORE. Now attaching guide
rails is a snap with Acme's new conformal rail guide. They just glue
onto the tube. That's it, just like the conformal lugs. What's more,
these conformal guides have less frontal area than standard buttons, and
that means less drag for your rocket.
