The Mean Machine stands over a staggering 6 feet tall, which can be a handful to transport to the launch site.

This legendary rocket is a Skill Level 2 kit which can be assembled and painted in just about a day. The complete kit includes four matching body tubes, THE OLD STYLE DOES not HAVE THE molded plastic twist lock connector set ENABLING THE ROCKET TO BE BROKEN DOWN INTO TWO SHORT PIECES., laser cut balsa fins, sleek molded plastic nose cone and a distinctive waterslide decal. The high performance rocket can be flown on our powerful E or D engines with the included engine spacer. When flown on our powerful E engine, the rocket can reach launch heights well over 900 feet and is easily recovered by a colorful 24 inch preassembled parachute.

This rocket kit is another of the favorite classics that no model rocket enthusiast should be without! As the name implies, the Mean Machine is a huge rocket with attitude and performance to match! Get yours today and fly it tomorrow!
