The QUICKSILVER is built for speed and is a great kit for Pre-Cert & Level 1 flights. This rocket stands 54.5" tall, is 2.1" in diameter, and has a 6 (low aspect ratio) fin design. This rocket comes standard with a 38mm motor mount and can fly on G thru I motors. At ~34 oz., the 30" parachute is sized right for the stock kit to make a safe landing under most field conditions. This kit comes standard with our exclusive Linear Rail Lugs for use with 80/20 brand launch rails. The stock airframe is ideal for flights up to approx. 0.85 Mach.
Below you will find a number of upgrade options. Upgrading the parachute size may be necessary if you intend to build heavy or have a hard landing surface (i.e. gravel, pavement, desert playa, etc.). Some motors will accelerate this rocket to transonic or even supersonic velocities. Under these conditions, this kit may require the fin upgrade, foam encapsulation of the fin root, as well as other advanced construction skills.
