    Well, you don't have to any more...

    Was told it was ok to share this with everybody thanks to Phil Queen.

    The nosecone is 3D printed, and the rocket separates at the bottom of the conic section. There was also some damage to one of the legs during a launch that you can see in the photos. The legs are fixed, but probably could be made to articulate.

    Apparently it flies to 50'.

    Look forward to this being released soon.

    Randy has been bringing this to the outreach events for a while now. We had it at the battlebot event at a local university yesterday. Kids love the Micromax stuff and the Mars Lander is the biggest attention grabber of the MMX fleet.

    Wait until you see the Jupiter B. Not a Micromax, but a very interesting interpretation of a certain craft that got lost in space if you know what I mean. Danger Bill Robinson! Danger! Randy tested one a last week and it flew well. He then tried to chad stage it and it didn't work well. But then he tried staging two of them, one on top of the other. Awesome. I told Randy that he needed to market it that way. Our club president saw it launched a few days later and had the exact same reaction. Sell it Bill Robinson! Sell it!

    Randy displayed several new items at NARCON. The MicroMax Jayhawk is a nice looking kit.

    Have to get me one when it's intro'd. Since I've been putting Randy's kids through college the past few years.;)
