    Hi All,

    I've been looking around for a built thread regarding this Rocketarium Trident T222-24 and could not find any. (bare with me if there is one)

    This model intrigued me and I ordered one yesterday despite the lack of information or build manual online.

    Anyone has tried this one?

    There are a couple of sizes available, I took the third out of four, using 24mm motor cluster.

    13mm
    https://www.rocketarium.com/Rockets/Trident/13

    18mm
    https://www.rocketarium.com/Rockets/Trident/18

    24mm
    https://www.rocketarium.com/Rockets/Trident-24

    29mm
    https://www.rocketarium.com/Rockets/Trident-29?

    Thanks..!

    And here's my 18mm and 29mm Enerjet clones. I have a 13mm and a 24mm clone somewhere.

    Default answer to any "has anyone built one of these" question: Kuririn has, probably multiples. :)

    Ha! Ain't happening, guys.:startrek2:
    I notice that Rocketarium was one of the first to migrate to 3D printed instead of plastic nose cones, as well as many scale parts in their kits. I don't doubt that other manufacturers will follow suit.

    Yeah - I don't mind since I will be sanding it no matter what.

    3D print gives a lot of possibilities without paying for molds.

    Going to follow this thread - I picked up an 18mm ARG Trident for a great price a while back so any hints and tips would be great.

    Cool - They look very interesting.


    I've started looking at the kit and wondered if a transition between the main tube and the 3 cluster tubes would be great.
    A 3D printed almost hollow part that would make the transition a bit smoother.

    Not 100% sure at the moment so..

    Looks like superhero underoos. I think it's an excellent idea, personally.

    Yup, all my Rocketarium Black Brants came with 3d printed nose cones and transitions. Pretty cool!

    Definitely will follow this thread. Rocketarium has some cool clustered sounding rockets, as well. I will probably get one of those, but the Trident is pretty cool!

    There's a 3X18mm ARG Trident listed on eBay for a buy it now price of $15, in case anybody's interested.
    Don't think it will last long.

    No love for Canada shipping - lol
    I will leave it to someone else, it's a nice not too expensive to fly rocket with 3x18mm

    I've test fit the part for the transition this morning (as i printed at night) and it fit first time. (yay..!!)
    Obviously this is going to be painted.. :rolleyes:

    Shipping to Canada is brutal. I do my best to shop online within Canada just for that reason. Get a $15 product and $40 shipping, lol.

    Here is the bulkhead replacement to the stock wood one.
    The holes are now the right size and they help centring the thing as well.
