    Another super design from Fliskits is the T3/T4 TOG. Super KEWL space design model.
    A good skill building kit, with the usual super instructions and superior parts. I large model at .448" OD and a tad over 10" long but even when well finsihed (some might say overfinished) it's a very good flying model with a LOWt of 11.2g.
    As has been my practice, I replaced the light weight kevlar thread with a heavier 30" x 90lb shockline and installed a 1/2" x 10" yellow teflon streamer/wadding in place of the supplied mylar streamer that requires adding wadding for each flight.
    Which ever way it's built, the Micro TOG is highly recommended.

    Yet another TOG from Fliskits. But, with a goony TOG as well.

    I picked colors pretty close to the ones on the brochure and the Fliskits website. I also took inspiration from EchoVictor's paint scheme for his US TOG, here.

    When I get the US TOG, the goony will get to serve double duty.

    Apparently, the TOG likes to caste a Moire pattern glow when it is photographed. Cool.

    =====

    The FlisKits TOG represents our most complex Micromaxx® model to date. Also our largest! Standing over 10" tall with a staggering collection of angled tubes and forward and rearward swept fins, the TOG cut a very interesting line and looks menacing even when it is just sitting on the launch pad!

    Featuring a unique collection of cut tubes, this kit comes with detailed instructions and templates to make cutting these tubes very straight forward, though skill with a knife and/or razor saw will certainly come in handy. Not meant for the faint at heart, the TOG will challenge your building skills not just with her complexity, but with her size. These parts are very small and care must be taken to assure all of the fins are straight. The end result will be a stunning addition to your fleet!

    The TOG features precision laser cut basswood fins Kevlar® based recovery system with a 1/2" X 8" mylar streamer for near field recovery every time!

    But don't let size fool you. Even this larger micro model gets good altitude on the MMX II motors and will provide you with many hours of flying fun!

    NOTE: Construction of this kit involves cutting body tubes to make the sloped tube fins.

    This model is rated as a Skill Level 3 model. Previous model building experience is needed to successfully build and fly the FlisKits Micromaxx® TOG rocket kit. (FlisKits 2013 Web Ad)

    The US TOG is a FlisKits first. An up-scale of a micromaxx® kit!

    When developing our micromaxx® line of model rocket kits, we wanted to do more than just down-scale our popular models. We wanted to originate some cool NEW designs too.

    The popular micromaxx® TOG is just such a design. Problem is, it was TOO cool. We very quickly began getting requests for an upscale of this exciting design.

    Your requests have been heard and we present you with the US TOG! A 24mm beast with style to spare!

    Just like her micromaxx® cousin, the US TOG represents one of the most stylish models ever created! A mix of rearward and forward swept fins/wings, with wing pods, ram jets and all sorts of sloped (scalloped) tubes. Sure to excite even the most jaded sport rocketeer!

    Further, with the increased size we were able to explore increased complexity and detail. To that end, the US TOG sports a pair of incredibly details ram jet tubes with ram jet intakes made from intricately cut (laser) fins from 0.025" this card stock. This level of detail is unprecedented and results in a very sharp looking model (FlisKits 2013 Web Ad)
