The Gyroc is no longer
in production. A unique system reconfigures the fin trailing edges to cause a high rate of spin
after the engine ejects out of the back end. It slows the rocket to a safe speed for recovery due to
excess drag created by the spinning.. My original Gyroc that I had as a kid ended up in the trees behind
our house. I spent hours searching for it. You might think I eventually learned to not launch rockets
from our small backyard, but I didn't. Many others were sacrificed to the Rocketus Eatumupus (L.) trees
