LOC Precision Flying Model Rocket Kit 1.63" LaserLOC LOC-LL163
Celebrating 35 years of LOC – we bring back an old favorite! The LaserLOC series was one of the first production minimum diameter kits available to the public. Keeping the tradition going we have a few modern day tweaks that will put your skills to the test. A gentle laser etch around the slots allow for easier glassine removal. Multi-slot airframe allow the fins to click into the booster. Precut 4oz fiberglass cloth can be easily epoxied from fin-airframe-fin. This reinforcement will give your LaserLOC the strength for today’s higher impulse motors. Fiberglass should be applied with a long cure epoxy for best results. If you have never glassed anything before, here’s your chance! The booster is a zipperless design. 1/4″ Launch lugs included. Fly away rail guides are another alternative.
Strong enough for supersonic flights. Light enough on your wallet and to fly an E motor!!!
