The BIG ONE
The Mean Machine is once again in production and now it's meaner than ever! You can fly it on Estes D or E engines and soar over 900 feet (274m) high. On a D motor, it will soar about half that ;-) Easy recovery unless you launch it in the woods! Go wild with a 24mm AeroTech???
Despite the picture that makes it look like a toothpick with fins, this is the original long rocket for people that need to look UP to their models! Over six and a half feet in length, it flies majestically off a well anchored (and MaxiRod equipped) launch pad. An E pad or HELfire Model Pad might be a bit more safe...
Detail improvements in addition to the new E-sized motor mount make this a better machine the the old Meanie. Laser cut fins and a Twist-Lock feature mean that it is easier to build and transport - and flies higher than ever before.
