This is a conical design offered by Art Applewhite. It flies straight as any other rocket.
When I got the kit, it had 2 body tubes. One was 18mm and the other was 19mm. The kit also had 2 sheets of cardstock, a piece of foamboard with pre-printed markings, 36 inches of elastic, and instructions.
Construction is covered by the above review.
You should spray a coat of clear on your cone, but if you get gold like I did, this is not needed.
Construction Rating: 5 out of 5
The cone has flown 23 times to date, but it seems, as hard as I try, the motor always kicks out the mount. Trust me, I try my best every time to retain the motor! The cone is a great performer on C6 motors but is still cool on a B6 motor.
The cone pops in two pieces held together by elastic. Descent is slow and safe. No wadding needed. However, I will ding half a point because I can't keep the motor in the cone no matter how hard I try.
Flight Rating: 4 out of 5
The cone is my favorite rocket and has held up well for all those flights. The cone landed on a variety of hard surfaces--asphalt, metal roofs, sidewalks, even landing on the football goal once--and survived to fly again. Buy one, you won't be dissapointed!
