This is a scale model of the Arcturus sounding rocket. The finished scale model stands an impressive 38.75" tall and comes with laser-cut fins, ejection baffle, plastic nose cone, balsa fin mounting attachments and vinyl and self- adhesive decals. The Arcturus sounding rocket was intended to serve as a replacement, or upgrade, to the popular Arcas sounding rockets. It's main selling point was that it could be launched from the existing Arcas launch platforms, avoiding new infrastructure expenses. The Arcturus rocket never gained a wide user base as new two-stage Arcas configurations served the same purpose more efficiently. This rocket requires 3/16" Launch Rod and compatible launch system. Requires (not included) Assembly, Wood glue, hobby knife, sandpaper, masking tape, primer and paint needed to build this rocket. Launch system with 3/16" Launch rod, Launch Controller and Rocket Motors needed to launch this rocket and are not included. The following rocket motors can be used: D12-5, E12-6, F30-6, F32-6, E18-5, E28-7, F12-5, F24-7, F39-6, 24-E22-6, 26-E31-6
