Looks like the original Mini Mean Machine had an affair with Blue Bird Zero. :eek:

It's an improvement.

I note the description says it comes with a 12 inch chute, but the tech specs say 9 inch chute. The parts picture shows a 9 inch chute.

If the new kit has the same dimensions as the old one, 9" is plenty.

BTW, if anyone decides to paint it black like the original, make it separate at the half way point. It will warp badly in the sun just like it's big brother. If you don't, just slightly cant the fins and rename it "The Wobbler". ;)

Half my fleet is named The Wobbler.

The Wobbler I, The Wobbler II,...

The exact reason why the original Mean Machine and the Mini Mean Machine are no longer black.

I had forgotten what it looks like. That would be an attractive model rocket.

OK, make that 2 votes for Atlas-Agena.
