Semroc Hydra 7.
You can fly it on 3 C's, but its even better on 7 C's
most fun you can have in LPR (my opinion)

Or a FlisKits Tres. The three motors are angled out for a neat smoke trail. Plus it is almost 42" tall.

Here are 4 Tres rockets launching together.....

Sunward Sky bender is an excellent model for what I hear and is a great intro rocket to clustering because it is only $19.95, Sunward eruption is a wiked cool 4X18mm canter cluster rocket:D don't forget the clip whips :D

Goliath is a very good flier. Flis Tres is another excellent rocket.

not really a recommendation, but an idea. I kit bashed an Estes FatBoy and fly it on 3 C6-5s. Wasn't hard to do and it flys great. The fins really need some reinforcement. The Balsa doesn't hold up to the extra weight on landing.

The Semroc Goliath is a great kit!

Or you could kitbash a Big Bertha into a Ranger by replacing the single 18mm mount with 3 18mm motor tubes - they fit nicely! :D

My Semroc Goliath flies happily on three C6-7's.

You might also consider the Semroc Defender and the FlisKits PayLord.
