I had an E9-8 with its name on it, hoping to get something of an idea what it was like in the good ol' days of FSI. Well, I got more than I bargained for. :eek:



This one only made it about a foot before it detonated.

Launched a Dart/Mach1 back in the mid 80's, results were about the same. I built this clone with sustainer to go on a 18mm, and an 18 and 24mm booster.
