One of the coolest cluster rockets you'll find is the Deuce's Wild by Fliskits.

Thrustline Aerospace has several cluster kits...
The A-Slam http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2567&item=5924861732&tc=photo

The "Smoke-n-Fire" kit looks pretty neat. As does the "Double Up" if you want a staged rocket..but my favorite is the "Mike IX"

The Deuce's Wild is definitely cool - very unconventional and a fun build! Jim Flis has me hooked - saving my pennies for a Tres.

I also enjoyed building the Semroc Goliath, a good beginner 3-engine cluster.

LOL!...it would have been really easy to cluster the Screamin' Mimi!

All you would have had to do is install 3 18mm motor tubes instead of the regular motor mount!

estes mongoose is a really good entry 2 stager. i would advise against a commanchee 3 unless you have an extremely large field and no wind and high visibility. i've lost two of them. its a cool looking rocket, but man, that puppy goes and goes.
for clusters, the absolute best 2 engine cluster i've ever seen is the deuces wild. that thing flies so nice. the smoke trail is sweet too. two seperate lines going up. its a really nice rocket.

for a cluster rocket I would only get that one that is sold by whats his name but it has two very distinct smoke trails and is a realy cool flier I think its called the dueces wild. now for a two stage rocket I can only think of the cheetah that fliskits sells as it is a very good flier and even if the booster piece stays on (motor ejected) it went real well the smoke trail was black instead of white but other wise I thought I had lost the booster aand was surprised when it was still attached to the rocket burnt to a crisp but still attached. It has been rebuilt and awaits paint. seriosly go to fliskits.com and enjoy your purchase.;) :D

The FlisKits Dueces Wild is an excellent choice for a first cluster build. I love watching this design fly. FlisKits has a real show-stopping namesake in this design!

The FlisKits Cheetah is an excellent choice for a first two stage build, it uses standard motors and is a typical two stage design.

While the Duece's Wild is an excellent choice, I liked Fliskits Richter Recker 'cause it taught me how to cluster my Estes Fat Boy. And it flies really good. Looks impressive too, over 8' tall. My 2 cents.
