This is great news. This kit may be all decal, but it is also in the Big Bertha size and power range. The top 3 most popular kits ever.

So I guess it will have a blow molded not injection cone, and laser not die crushed fins? My mom bought me one at the Broadway department store on her store card!

Note the item number! 000652 - Citation Patriot™ Description

Decals is misspelled. Thanks John!

Just Jerry

Pretty sure I am buying >50 of them. For gifts! Spread the love.

This just continues a long line of kits I've cloned that eventually were produced again by SEMROC and Estes.

I'll still buy a couple as backups.

For you, shouldn't that be a 29mm motor mount? I can just picture you trying to fly that bird on a G80 or even an F15.

I can't picture it. GH already told us he's out of the hobby and doesn't fly rockets anymore.

The Astron Omega is BT60 based and is only slightly longer and is two-stage 24mm powered.
This is a rocket that always should have been 24mm.
One can always adapt down but not up.
29mm is just too much.
Rockets of this size and weight fly great from a 18mm B through a 24mm RMS F24.

Yeah, I haven't flown anything in the past 3 years, but did every year from 1977 through early 2014. Big deal.
