This has been a great rocket from build to first launch. it is a very straightforward build with a very different and new fin attachement. The build can be completed in an afternoon, and is a beuty to watch fly. I did not buy the Maxi launch rod, but there seemed to be no ill effects. The rocket roared on the D12-3, and it was extremely loud!! There was a huge flame out the back, and it took off slowly, before increasing in speed to an approximate altitude of 450 ft. it drifted down on the huge 24" parachute before landing, completing a textbook flight on a nerverackingly windy day. Overall a great rocket!!! (Posted on 3/29/13)
Oh, this one brings back memories. Glad to see it back (and updated) - and unlike its little brother, it's MUCH harder to lose! Impressive kit (and an easy introduction to larget kits and higher power.) (Posted on 8/25/11)
Hi! it isn't a new model,,, I was building one back in the 80's! (in school),,, it's a very nice model! a big sturdy one,,, if the quality is as good has it was back then, of course! (Posted on 8/24/11)
Just bought (2) of these, a great classic kit!
Even better with an "E" engine option!
Now if only the Colossus would be re-released, I can rebuild all the rockets I had when I was a (younger) kid :) (Posted on 8/12/11)
