An Oldy but a Goody!
By rbeard2 March 18, 2013
I have owned several of these beasts and I will say that The Mean Machine is unique among model rockets for a couple of reasons: It is tall - 6 feet sounds tall when you read it but when you are actually loading it onto the launch rod and getting ready to press the button, you realize this thing is a monster! Personally, I think the smallest and ony D engine to use is the D-12-3. Any longer delay or lower thrust and you are in the dirt. E12s should scream if your launch area is big enough. It breaks down into 2 sections for travel and is always a show stopper at launches because it just looks really cool on the way up!

Mean Machine
By matthewbodyk January 10, 2013
This rocket is awesome. Now only is it tall and easy to build but it is great to launch. Under a D engine, the Mean Machine will lumber to the skies. With an E engine, the Mean Machine just races of the launch pad. This rocket never disappoints.

The Estes Mean Machine is a fun rocket with a big Wow factor. Standing at 72 tall the Mean Machine is one huge rocket. This updated version includes a plastic breakdown coupler which allows it to separate into two sections for easier transporting. Even though this is a skill level 2 rocket it is a very simple and straight forward build. One tip for this rocket is to use epoxy to secure the motor mount into the body tube instead of the directed white glue. The Mean Machine tends to come down hard on the engine hook and mount. This rocket is designed to fly on Estes E engines. It does come with an adapter to use D engines but I find them to be underpowered for this bird.
