No joke! I think Estes list price on the Oracle is like $114. I think I may just get one of each of the X-Prize rockets. Those are WAY too cool!Originally posted by Karl
Those things looks sweet ! And more or less , cheapish
Sure, I've got thoughts. The current Estes controller can launch clusters. They make 3 controllers currently:Originally posted by marvSRG
I like the Starchaser 2 motor cluster...I wonder how Estes is going to cover that. That must mean a cluster launch controller is on the way because they would never reccomend another manufacturers launch equipment and the current Estes one can't ignite a cluster.
Unfortunately, it's been reported that this one may not make it now, at least not this year. If we see it at all it won't be till 2005. You'll note that the Cosmos Mariner is not listed on eHobbies page announcing the new products coming out.Originally posted by gpoehlein
The one I really want is the Lonestar Cosmos Mariner - (Homer Simpson voice: mmm... D engine boost glider)!
Oh year - gotta have a scissorwing too!

Heh, I was thinking the same thing. I don't know if it's been delayed/cancelled due to flight worthiness, or if they're having a licensing issue.Originally posted by shreadvector
I'm kind-of glad. It looked like it would be a repeat of the foam space shuttle orbiter: looping crashing boost with many, many fields set on fire. Who needs another huge pop pod with a quarter pound of steel washers on top?
