    Mini Max, my first new rocket as a BAR. My blue/white combination was influenced a bit by the old Blue Bird Zero, I think.

    It looks nice.

    I wish my first few dozen as a BAR looked as good.

    For those of you who put an 18mm mount in the Mini Max, was there anything else required or was it stable as is? If stable, with which engine(s)?

    I put a C6-3,5 and 7 in it and it was a riot. I thought the fins were going to rip off. It is a bit much for a C......but fun. I did nothing as far as any "ballancing" Mine is built with yellow wood glue. I just use a small streamer for recovery. have fun and keep your eyes on it.

    This is a scratch Mini Max that I made before Estes released theirs. It has an 18mm MMT and flies like a champion on C6's without any noseweight.

    Mfg. Description: The Der Red Max is a classic Estes model rocket and another of our most requested bring back models...and for good reason. Not only is this a uniquely decorated model, but this model performs as good as it looks. This is one of those model rockets that has a personality all its own!

    Standing just a tad over 16 inches tall, the Max is one of our rockets that's a must have in your rocket arsenal. From the long, ballistic-shaped nose cone to the stubby fins and the truly unique decor, this rocket has attitude! Every launch with our standard engines will give you stellar flights over 700 feet. Recovery is accomplished with a colorful 18 inch preassembled parachute for safe landings.

    In addition to retaining all of the great looks and flying qualities of the original, this new version now features laser cut wood fins for improved performance and has a waterslide decal set that replicates the original - including the totally cool skull and crossbones. Pick up a classic Der Red Max today and add it to your collection. You are sure to be the envy of all your model rocket buddies...until they get theirs. (Estes 2011 Web Ad)

    Leading Edge Micro Max (LE-07) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Leading Edge Rocketry

    MODEL NAME: Micro Max Also known as:

    NUMBER: LE-07

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Sport, Downscale
    Motor Mount: 1x6mm
    Recovery: Streamer
    Stages: 1
    Length: 5.05"
    Diameter: 0.448"
    Span:
    Weight: 2.0 grams

    Mfg. Description: As with all of our Micro Classics, these kits feature precision laser cut basswood fins, hard fiber centering rings, white kraft body tubes with a glassine outer wrap and machined balsawood nose cone. The Micro Max is a great flyer with all the style and flight characteristics of a larger model but with the added benefits that come from a Micro Maxx™ powered rocket, smaller launch site, lower cost per flight and lower altitude which means you may be able to fly your Micro Classics™ on days that the weather won’t permit larger flights. All you will need in addition to your regular ground support and lunch supplies is a smaller launch rod like our GS-0001 Launch rod and adapter. We also offer complete Micro Classics™ launch sets. Click here for more information. The Micro Max is rated Skill Level Three. We recommend that the builder have some previous model rocket experience due to the smaller parts of a Micro Classics™.

    My Red Max Family: Der Big Red Max, Der Red Max, Der Big Pink Mini Max, and Der Tiny Max.

    The Pink Max Decals come with a band for the upper BT, but I screwed that one up while applying it. It's a Mini Max with a 15" long body tube and an 18mm motor mount. A very nice flier.

    Last year I retired my original Der Big Red Max after a cato (don't use 30 year old Estes engines that have been sitting around). Looking at it over the winter I have decided that there's still a lot of good flights left in her so I'm in the process of replacing the MMT and parachute and she will fly again this summer. Also plan to built a new Der Red Max (or I should say Der Dark Max).:dark:
