This kit uses a single 29mm composite motor, but can be flown with a ESTES D12-3 using a MMA-1 (not included). Each kit comes complete with nylon elastic shock cord, plastic nose cone, precision machined plywood fins and centering rings, and recovery system. A special PRE-MARKED airframe for fin and launch lug attachment is included to make assembly quick and easy.
The ONYX has a large diameter and short appearance which makes this bird a natural for sport flying. A singe G motor can propel this vehicle to 1800 ft. Parachute recovery.
With apologies to Ron and Deb, This is just an over grown, and over priced, Estes rocket. It doesn't even have through the wall fin mounts! Sure, you can fly it on G power, but why bother? And $40? I'll fly it and have fun with it, But I can't recommend it with so many better alternatives.
