ENCORE Comanche-3  Get a Half Mile High

It's BACK! Comanche is a good way to get a half mile high!

When two stages simply aren't enough, try three! First a D12-0 motor first stage booster gets things going in a hurry. Comanche roars to altitudes of over half a mile!

On days when recovery would be dodgy for a altitude record attempt, you can de-tune Comanche by substituting an A8-5 or a B6-6 for the C6-7 top stage. Three stages are three times as much fun! And if you are really interested in an altitude record... D9-0 second stage and D9-7 on top will get you closer to the Mile High Club.

You have to use a MaxiRod with this bird... don't think of using that skinny little starter kit rod!

HINT: Recovering all the stages makes Comanche launches a real team effort!
