29mm mount flies great on E through G motors

Is this kind of like my LOC Ninja?  An upscaled version using an existing platform?  Great looking rocket.  I thought I was going to get to fly my 1340 again this weekend, but I got to take my Mom to an out of town funeral instead.Sad

My favorites is the Estes Argent I used to cert L1 with.
As soon as I can figure out how to actually upload a picture to this site, rather than just link it from another site, I'll post it. Confused

The modern equivalent is the U.S. Rockets Banshee. D-J.

http://v-serv.com/usr/kits/banshee.htm

On the NCR Phantom 4000, they used to recommend waayyy too long of delays in their catalog.

http://www.rocketreviews.com/phantom-400...1985-.html

A better, more stable, more available, stronger rocket is at USR with the Mongrel. It is available in three versions, 7x29mm, 1x54mm, and the primary 1x66mm version, which allows cluster mounts or single motor mounts to be interchanged, 1x29mm, 1x38mm, 1x54mm, 4x24mm, 3x29mm. Not all included in the kit. F-L.

The Mongrel was the first HPR rocket imaged in the NAR magazine.

Sorry Bill, doesn't sound like a good weekend for you ... I am sure you would much rather be flying than taking that trip out of town.

AAA offered two versions.  These were like larger versions of the EnerJet Nike Ram only in 2.6" diameter.  See pages 9 and 13 here

http://plans.rocketshoppe.com/pubs/AAA/AAA-1992.pdf

The version on page 9 is the model that I had a couple of the originals purchased from Al with AAA.  Mine all had three fins, not four like the pic in the catalog.  The version on page 13 is the H version with the 38mm mount, I never had that one.  I have some info saved on my PC at home if you are interested email me and I will send you what I have.

There were both three fin and four fin versions of the Magnum Nike-Ram 2 that I have seen posted.  Mine were early versions and both had three fins and flew well.  Pretty light weight for it's size and if you didn't exceed E or F power recovery on a small field was still pretty manageable.

Banshee is really cool. Flying with a D would make a great demo bird and the 2.25" airframe is strong and light enough to drop with a streamer.
Cool
Always wanted either the Pre-Estes NCR Phantom or Phantom HD but did fly quite a few mid power flights on the NCR Hypersonic kits.  Those always flew well on SSRS E30/F67 motors.  

Missed out completely on the Mongrel ... I was still flying FSI and Crown stuff in the early 80's

Aerotech G-Force.  Mine just keeps going and going.  Scratched all to heck, but still flies straight and lands gently.

My favourite was my Estes 36DD. Alas, it had only one flight--beautiful, 2 D-engine cluster but it drifted away at NARAM--54, never to be seen again. I haven't been able to find another one since.
