Kit Specs and More

PLEASE NOTE: Kit weights have changed over the years due to material changes made over time. In most cases kits are somewhat heavier than listed. Use these listing as rough guidelines only. Due diligence requires that you sim your rocket before flight using the actual weight of your rocket, once completed.

Updates to these charts are being made now, but it may take some time to complete.
