This is actually my son's build.

So far MM is complete and he got the last 2 fins on tonight.

I think in the future we are going to make a good team, I like
building them and he likes painting them. I'll bet dollars to
donuts this one is not going to be black when he is done.

Don't paint it black or any dark color, because it will warp in the sun. The mean machine was one of my favorite rockets until the parachute stripped in January- ouch.

Stock comes with a 24mm.

So...AT F motors :D


My little cousin just bought one, we built it together.

We modified it a bit. We put the fins all the way at the bottom of the tube, so it could stand by it's self.

It flies on F24s because I want it to :)

It also flies well on E9-6s and E18s.
