This is the Dr. Zooch Rockets Mark II flying model rocket kit. It is a model that represents …well… no real rocket at all! It is actually derived from a rocket created by the guy who owns the company. He invented this rocket back in 1972 as a part of his rocket dweeb childhood. Now he has refined and re-funned the design to make an easily to build fun flyer so that everyone out there can either relive their own twisted childhood or get a start at being the weirdest kid in their neighborhood.
When fully constructed this model stands 12.2 inches tall with a 2.93 inch fin-span and has a basic empty weight of 2.4 ounces. It is single stage and uses a standard 18mm motor, such as a B6-4 (NO engines are included with the kit). Flights over 1,000 feet high are easy to obtain and the kit is constructed with a payload compartment for launching small “things.” This is a basic skill level kit, meaning that almost anyone can build and fly it successfully. All of the primary parts are either wood or paper. So buy it, build it and- young or old- become the strangest kid in the neighborhood.
