Rocketarium Flying Model Rocket Kit SS-520 Cluster(2)  ROC-RK-1031

This is a sport-scale model of a Japanese sounding rocket

The SS-520 was a two-stage rocket, the kit is single stage

The real SS-520 rockets can reach altitudes of 800 km to conduct scientific experiments and gather data

This flying model rocket doesn't go quite as high, good thing too, it would make recovery impossible

The SS-520 rocket does, however, fly on a cluster of two 18mm motors for added fun and excitement

The self-adhesive decal sheet includes fin wraps, lettering, and body wraps

This kit includes the ejection baffle, which makes it much easier to get this rocket ready for launch as no recovery wadding is necessary

Parts include pre-cut 1/8" basswood fins

Two body tubes

Sturdy coupler with baffle

Laser-cut plywood centering rings, and other parts needed to build this model rocket.

Supplies such as glue, sandpaper, and paint are not included

3/16" Launch Lugs
