All these rockets ascend slowly. At apogee they flip over and glide down slowly and safely using aerobrake recovery. There is no complicated recovery system to fail. The fins are high quality Basswood and the Saucer Section is 110 lb Card Stock. Engine hooks are used on the 6" &  7.25" flying saucers for positive engine retention. Engine hooks are not used on the 10.25 inch flying saucers so that many different motors can be used.  These kits are intended for the rocketeer looking for a new challenge and something out of the ordinary. With their high visibility and slow ascent and recovery, they are real crowd pleasers. NO long walks to recover you rocket either, even on a windy day.
