    Semroc Satellite Killer

    Posted by Bill Eichelberger on 15th Jul 2021

    I bought this kit from Carl at the NARAM in 2013. Later that winter we were switching our internet provider and the moron that did the work knocked a lamp over in the loft, right onto the Satellite Killer and a downscale of the Estes Deep Space Transport that I called the Moderately Deep Space Transport. The Satellite Killer was killed, and when Randy found out he sent had a new one in the mail to me the next day. This was a really fun kit to build, a very well thought out process that I never would have thought of. Flights are low, slow and smoky, perfect for a small field, or even a mid-sized back yard.
