    Fantastic MPR Kit

    Posted by DAVID DEAVOURS on 13th Jul 2019

    The LOC PK16-ND kit is a perfect bridge between low powered rockets and bigger, more powerful models. The rocket builds just like bigger LOC IV but in a more manageable size.

    The kit comes with all the required bits, except for a motor retention system. Another popular upgrade is to replace the elastic shock cord with a nylon or Kevlar version. Adding rail buttons in place of the stock lug is highly recommended.

    In this updated kit the fins reach the MMT to be epoxied in place, and easily sandwiched between the spacer rings for an extremely sturdy fin can. Also, the kit now includes a payload bay which can be converted for use in a dual deployment configuration with additional hardware.

    LOC Precision provides the RockSim file so it can be easily simulated with various 29mm motors.
    In general I am extremely pleased with the Graduator.
