Abstract

A two-part toy rocket has a parachute for each part housed in respective compartments 15. The parts are held together during rocket ascent by engagement of formations 12 and 14 and by catch 1 holding ring 7 of a spring tether 5, 6. With the change of rocket orientation at flight apex, freely pivoted weighted arm 13 knocks arm 2 to withdraw the catch 1. The two parts separate and descend on their respective parachutes. <IMAGE>

Description

SPECIFICATION Shuttle Shute Toy Parachute Rocket This invention relates to a Toy Parachute Rocket.
This rocket is so designed, that when fired from a catapult into the air and reaching maximum height, the rocket turns over. As soon as the rocket turns over, it separates into two parts, and both parts descend. Each part descends by parachute.
According to the present invention there is provided a Toy Parachute Rocket. Two parts. The mechanism for parting the rocket is in the tail part, it consists of a spring loaded catch and a swinging weighted arm that releases a coupling securing the nose cone and a hooked arm joint.
A specific embodiment will now be described by the way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: Figure 1 shows the rocket assembled in a firing position.
Figure 2 shows the nose cone separated from the tail section.
Figure 3 shows the tail section separated from the nose cone.
Figure 4 shows the spring loaded catch and the swinging weighted arm in the loaded position.
Figure 5 shows the spring loaded catch and the swinging weighted arm in the release position.
Figure 6 shows the spring loaded catch and catch arms brass washer and compression spring.
Referring to the drawings of the rocket the nose cone 4 and the tail section 17 are coupled together before launching in this way. On the underside of the nose cone 4 there is a recess block 14 on the underside of the tail section 17 there is a hooked arm 12 and when the nose cone 4 is placed in position, on the tail section 17. This hooked arm 12 and recess block 14 forms a joint and locks the one side of the rocket together. On the nose cone 4 on the top side there is fixed a coupling which is made up of eyelet 18, tension spring 5, bar 6 tension spring 5 and metal ring 7. To connect the nose cone 4 to the tail section 17 next the spring loaded catch 3 must be pushed by catch arm 2 upwards and then backwards bringing the spring loaded catch 3 to rest on catch rest bar 8.In this position the compression spring 9 is fully compressed and the catch arm 1 is protruding out of the top side of the tail section 17 then the metal ring 7 is pulled backwards and placed over catch arm 1 causing a good tenseness on the tension springs 5, resulting in locking the nose cone 4 and the tail section 17 firmly together with both parachutes in their respective compartments 15, attached to eyelet 19. During this operation the rocket must be held in an upright position and in doing so the swinging weighted arm 13 is in a safe position laying against the tail section 17.
To part the nose cone 4 and the tail section 17 in the air, behind the spring loaded catch 3 there is a swinging weighted arm 13. This swinging arm 13 is suspended by a supporting bar 11 inside the rocket causing a pendulum movement of the swinging weighted arm 13 as soon as the rocket reaches maximum height and turns over. The swinging weighted arm 13 swings forward knocking against the catch arm 2 forcing the spring loaded catch 3 off the catch rest bar 8. The compression spring 9 forces the spring loaded catch 3 down withdrawing the catch arm 1 resulting in freeing the spring coupling which consists of tension spring 5, bar coupling 6 and metal ring 7. The nose cone 4 and the tail section 17 now parts easily as the hooked arm 12 and recess block 14fall apart and both nose cone 4 and tail section 17 descends separately on a parachute.
1. AToy Parachute Rocket which comprises of a nose cone and a tail piece section when coupled together becomes one unit and as long as the rocket is in an upright position the rocket will remain one unit, but when the rocket is turned over the mechanism operates and separates the nose cone and the tail section and both parts descend on a parachute separately.
2. A Toy Parachute Rocket as claimed in Claim 1.
The mechanism is activated by a swinging weighted arm.
3. A Toy Parachute Rocket as claimed in Claim 1 or 2. A swinging weighted arm that activates a spring loaded catch.
4. AToy Parachute Rocket as claimed in Claim 2 or 3. A spring loaded catch is activated by a weighted swinging arm activating a spring coupling.
5. A Toy Parachute Rocket as claimed in Claim 2 or 3 or 4. A spring loaded catch is activated by a swinging weighted arm activating a spring coupling whereby separating a joint comprising of a recess block and a hooked arm.
6. A Toy Parachute as claimed in Claim 2 or 3 or 4 or 5. The swinging arm activates the spring loaded catch. The catch is part of two arms that have separate jobs to do. The spring loaded catch and arms are one unit.
7. A Toy Parachute Rocket as claimed in Claim 6. A spring loaded catch forced down by a compression spring.
8. AToy Parachute Rocket substantially described herein with reference to Figures 1-6ofthe accompanying drawings.
