"Wow..."

This rocket is amazing! I love how it is taller than me!

 
"4 out of 5"

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.

 
"Estes Mean Machine (Re-Issue), but still can be upgraded."

The original Estes Mean Machine did not come with a center quick disconnect and the (Re-Issue) is easier to transport. The Re-Issue is up powered to E motors, but I would install an ejection baffle to protect the stock plastic parachute. Upgrade the parachute and shock cord to nylon and install an Estes 24mm motor retainer, part number 9751, leaving out the engine block and then you can use longer grain 24mm motor cases like Aerotech 24/60, or longer cases. I would also slot the BT-60 tube, for through tube fins, cut out new fins and extending the fins to the motor mount tube. F power motors on up can shred standard mounted balsa fins. Use epoxy when assembling and laminate you balsa fins with plain printer paper and C/A adhesive, for no fin flutter, at Max Q.

Comments

  • Keep out of reach of small children. Adult supervision required.
  • Use only with Estes products.
  • Test fit all parts together before applying any glue.
