This US sounding rocket combined the Talos booster and Castor sustainer to reach altitudes up to 190 miles. The rocket was a scientific vehicle used to gather data on daytime air glow from high altitude.
This sport-scale model of the Super Chief II also has two stages. It stages a E or D motor to a B or C motor. The model rocket kit includes wrap-around bands, hatches, and decals to give it the right level of detail. Buy and build the Super Chief II for NAR sport-scale competition, or for super fun, two-stage, flights.
Strips are cut from card stock which add detail to the rocket. Two hatches are also cut from card stock. All templates needed are included.
This kit includes laser-cut balsa fins, plywood centering rings, body tubes, coupler, elastic shock cord, plastic nose cone and adapter for D motors.
The Super Chief II includes a parachute kit for upper stage recovery.
