Looks great! Has hints of the Estes Surveillance Drone, but much more detailed.

By golly it sure does .
Can honestly say no inspiration or should I say clone attempt from that exact rocket, nice bird tho.
The likes of it I have seen.
Ive looked at100s of pictures of rockets and missiles and saved many..
As I would guess most of us scratchers do.
Feed the brain.

I definitely know what you mean. I've looked over so many rockets that even just yesterday there were two unique ones that I had seen before (even a real one in a museum) that I had forgotten about completely until much later after thinking it seemed familiar. The build on this one is top notch, so I can't wait to see the end...and also find out what the heck "MOB" means. :p

I flew an FSI Echo clone last December on a C11-0/C11-5 load. The C11-0 CATO'd, but in doing so lit the C11-5 which continued the journey before CATOing a couple of hundred feet up. No damage to the rocket other than a snapped shock cord. Apparently I live lucky. :cool:

Lucky for sure.
We also had a C6-3 Cato.
No damage except a little nose tube wrinkle from impact.
