If you like big rockets blasting off with pillars of smoke and fire, Europa is just for you
Size-ist? ;-) Europa will not disappoint! Europa, named after one of Jupiter's numerous great moons, is a mega-cluster. This rocket comes with a 5x cluster mount and can be flown with a wide range and engine combinations.
This model is very solid, but compared to other models in this size
still relatively light.
The milled 5-piece engine mount secures the engines with two stainless steel screws and fits precisely into the body tube. The fins are milled from very stable aircraft plywood and glued into the pre-cut body tube.
Through the wall fin mounting assures that the fins are aligned with precision.
Europa has a very sophisticated baffle system for permanent parachute protection - wadding is soooo yesterday! But D Recovery Upgrade Kit is appropriate belt and braces.
IMPORTANT: When launching a cluster model, we strongly recommend the use of Ignitor Sticks and Tape Match to ensure synchronous ignition of the engines.
The large multi-coloured decal has the flags of the 45 nations of Europe. This should not be a problem for Brexiters as we will obviously still be in Europe when we leave the EU. However, we may need to upgrade with the flag of Catalonia sooner or later!
