The Sky-Torpedo kit from DynaStar Mid-Power Model Rockets is awesome! What makes it one of my favorites is that it sports awesome graphics designed by Shrox!
Like the other kits from "DynaStar Mid-Power Rockets", the Sky-Torpedo is designed to fly on the less expensive "D" size black powder rocket motors. And it will give you the same performance as other mid-power kits that require "E" and "F" size composite propellant rocket motors. The lighter weight rockets fly faster and higher.
How do you get the same performance using smaller motors? Simple: the DynaStar brand of rocket kits use thin-wall body tubes, which are significantly lighter. So the rocket doesn't need a big motor just to get it off the launch pad. You'll save money because you don't necessarily need to buy larger rocket motors!
