I like your color scheme, Ron! I noticed you are in Minneapolis. Where do you fly? You should come out to the MASA launch tomorrow just east of Elk River (www.masa-rocketry.org)

Well here is my Candy Corn paint scheme. Had a few issues here and there. This is my first paint job with multiple colors and masking. I've learned a few things from this experience. Looking forward to flying it this weekend. All that's left is to prepare the chute and mount shock cord. Looking forward to doing another Fliskit in the future. Thanks for the experience Jim!

Of course, the Fliskits Diminutive Deuce is small, and it is already an MMax rocket. It lets you use two at a time!

But, as I've indicated, I make card models and goonies of my kits (unless it wouldn't make sense). The family photo has the big goony, the papa dressed in prototype black as is presented on the Fliskits site, and the tiny blue and yellow rocket is a minimum diameter MMax cardmodel.

The up close photo is of just the two MMax rockets, the real kit with two MMax engines, and the cardmodel with just one MMax engine.

I guess this should go here. It is a Baby Bertha with a Deuce motor mount and nose cone. The launch pic is courtesy of Fliskits (thanks Jim).






13mm Deuce's Wild. The launch pic is courtesy of Fliskits (thanks Jim).

FlisKits Diminutive Deuce (MX005) Basic Information.

Final Year:
Designer: Jim Flis

Type: Sport, Downscale
Motor Mount: 2x6mm

Mfg. Description: No significant text in 2010 catalog.

=====

The Deuce's Wild! canted motor model rocket concept has become one of the most popular and talked about design in the industry. It's canted motor cluster produces the most distinctive smoke trail of any model rocket kit available with the possible exception of the Tres, her cousin kit.

As a result of this popularity and the excitement generated by this design, FlisKits has started selling engine mount kits for the Deuce's Wild! as well as upscale (24mm) and down scale (13mm) versions of that mount. To further highlight the popularity of this particular design, FlisKits held a "Deuce Bash" contest resulting in many exciting designs based on this most creative engine mount.

The highlight of all of this popularity is the ongoing Tour de Deuce that is taking 2 Deuce's Wild! kits and flying them in every state in the United States of America.

It seems, with regard to the Deuce, that the fun never stops! And that tradition continues with the announcement of the Diminutive Deuce! The smallest of the Deuce family, the Diminutive Deuce measures in at a "diminutive" 6.56" tall, making it one of the smallest, if not THE smallest Micromaxx® cluster kits ever offered!

The Diminutive Deuce! comes with everything you need to construct this model. This kit features balsawood fin stock with a fin pattern for cutting out 4 trapezoid fins, balsa nose cone, body tube, 2 motor tubes and a custom centering ring. Also included is a fin pattern sheet with details on how to cut the body tube to accept the canted cluster motor mount. Highly detailed instructions and high quality Kevlar® based recovery equipment make this kit a joy to build and a thrill to fly!

Instructions also include details on how to prepare your model for flight including special tips on launching cluster Micromaxx® models.

Also, to get that classic two-tone yellow on blue Deuce paint scheme, we offer for free download the painting mask you will need to duplicate this attractive trademark paint job. (FlisKits 2013 Web Ad)
