Launch Pad PAC-3 S.A.M.
Sale Price: $25.49
I'll say right off the bat - this is a great kit and if you put the time into it to make it right, it will perform perfect. The only two things I did not like about this kit is 1. The clay was hard as rock and when I added water to it, it just got worse. I replaced it with modeling clay (1/2oz) and it worked fine. 2. The paper nose cone is not only near impossible to get right (even with steaming), but even with a liberal coating of super glue enforcement, it still won't take much damage. Having said that, this thing flies beautifully even on an Estes D12-3. My final weight was around 280g and it achieved about 350 feet. I can't wait to fly this on the reload F24-4 I have. To make this truly scale - add 1/4" of silver right above the 1.75" black band and right above the tips of the wiring guides. The pictures show this but the instructions make no mention. However, if you look at pictures of the real thing, those silver bands are present. This would have gotten 5 stars if the nose cone would have been one solid plastic piece.
