Happy for you, though!😁

For me, anyway, it's 'the look'. A well designed rocket, no matter how simple, will maintain it's appeal and every one of the Enerjet SR series has that. Of all the rockets I bring to launches both with clubs and on my own, the SR1340, 1340/20 and SR2650' and the down-scaled variants I've built are the rockets that get the 'Wow!' comments - the ones I get the most questions about.
Another example is the Crown/SSRS Lasor 134 -very simple, sleek design
(though notice the similar fins to the SR2650...)


Estes take note: The down-scaled SR2650 for 13mm motors would make a great kit!
