Sky Writer? Geddit? Ha ha ha! What a hoot!
This rocket looks just like an old fashioned freshly sharpened No. 2 cedar wood pencil... you can almost smell the shavings!
But unlike a dumb bit of wood and graphite, this babe loves atlitude and will go to 1000 feet (300 meters) if you stick a C6-7 under it. In less than perfect (e.g. breezy) conditions, you would be advised to chose just about any B motor or a C with less delay.
This slim missile likes to get high! In fact, if you want to go for max altitude, consider replacing the parachute with a streamer... unless you like long walks in the country!
Sky Writer is VERY quick and easy to stick together properly thanks to the moulded fin unit and pre-decorated BT and nose cone. You can have this one on the launch pad in under a half hour or so... most of that time is just to be sure the glue is dry!
