This kit comes with:
- Pre-slotted lower airframe (3 fin-slots)
- Upper airframe
- Coupler tube
- Plastic nose-cone
- 38mm motor mount

This kit does not come with a retaining system or decals. The 38mm L retainer is recommended and it can be bought here.
Challenge: If built well, this kit has been proven capable of surviving H550 DMS motors (90 G's of acceleration off the pad). Do not try this unless you are experienced with rocket building. A H550 DMS motor pushes this rocket to just below its structural and aerodynamic limits at best and at worst will turn this rocket into confetti. It is capable of going super-sonic but will need to be built with large fin-fillets to survive passing through the speed of sound. We are pretty sure this would shred itself on most high-end I motors and any J motor, but we can't stop you from trying.
