Rocketarium Daedalus Two-Stage Rocket
This is the command-center for the infamous project Minos. Daedalus has been orbiting the sun from a safe distance for some time, acquiring massive amounts of radiation data. It's mission is to safely guide the Icarus ships to the sun's surface for final approach. The Daedalus' two-stage design catapulted it into orbit quickly, well ahead of the Icarus science vessels. It took two E impulse class rocket motors to get the job done.
As a two-stage model rocket kit, the Daedalus has both a booster and sustainer stage to be built. These stages must fit correctly to ensure smooth staging. There are two stages to be assembled, which make this a Skill Level 2 kit.

Model Rocket Kits are rated by Skill Level
If you are just starting in the hobby start at the beginner level and move up from there at your own pace.
What is needed to build and fly
All model rockets come in kit form that require assembly. The materials are primarily cardboard tubes, balsa or plastic fins and nose cone. Materials will vary by model and are typically specified in the description of each kit.
Additional supplies will be necessary to build and finish your model rocket kit and may include:
Scissors, Hobby Knife
Wood Glue, Model Cement or CA(Super Glue)
Finishing Supplies like:
