The Cosmic Cobra is a low power rocket that recovers in 2 pieces: the nose cone returns on helicopter-like blades and the body tube recovers by parachute.
The kit contains:
This kit was easy to build and took less than one hour to complete.
No finishing was required. The kit comes with a cool decal.
Construction Rating: 5 out of 5
First flight was on a B6-2. Great flight but even with 5 sheets wadding, it was too much for the parachute.
Second flight was on a C6-3 and 6 pieces of wadding. Higher fligth but same result with the parachute.
Third flight was on a B6-4, which is too long of a delay, causing the rocket to eject from only 70ft up. However, with 8 sheets wadding it recovered safely.
I like that it has good, stable flights but don't use B6-4 or C6-5 motors.
PROs: the helicopter nose is cool and is more than likely to work well.
CONs: it needs 8 sheets wadding to keep from burning the parachute.M/P>

The Cosmic Cobra is a cool first or second rocket. For less than $12, it's a great deal. Get this rocket!
