I can't believe companies other than Mercury Engineering aren't turning out more large mid-power kits like this, i.e., the Mercury Integrator and RDR-I & II. Lately the NCR kits are selling like hotcakes on Ebay for BIG MONEY.
I picked up a built Phantom 4000HD for $10 off a guy...lol Flown it once on a G78, tangled chute, flat landing, no damage.
Been there, done that, a few times! My dad's Brute has been around forever, at least 5-6 years. First flight attempt on an F22J (I know, bad idea), lawn darted sideways and ripped it apart. It has repaired a few times, including an entirely new tube. Those fins are rock solid though...
I believe the rocket has 25 flights or so. Great design!
