North Coast Rocketry Flying Model Rocket Kit Cluster Duck
Featured in the recent issue of Sport Rocketry, the Cluster Duck uses a cluster of six 18mm engines around a 24mm core to provide plenty of fire and smoke in flight. Using the Quest Q2G2 igniters (not included), you can reliably ignite all seven motors for spectacular flights. A great combo is to cluster 6 B6-0s around a D12-7, though the best flight to date was a mix of Estes C6-0s and Quest C6-0s around a D12-7!
The kit features:
Laser cut fins
a core engine hook
plastic nose cone
heavy duty Gorilla™ shock cord system
24” nylon parachute is NOT included.
