Maybe upscale it a bit so it takes the longer 24mm Engine Tube.
For "Outa Site Flights"!


The Estes Magician is an extended Cherokee-D with a long 24mm engine mount, a "transition payload" nose, and different decals. The fins are the same, all you would have to do is use the Cherokee-D nose cone and decals and there you go!

The Magician has sharper corners then the Cherokee D. Basic same shap, but not the exact same.

The Magician started life as a bring back of the Cherokee D, so yes just swap out the nose cone and your done apart from the decals.

Explain if you can. Like a different paint scheme or less balsa and more plastic. Either way I'd like to see it back. It was the most reliable rocket I had and it never had a failed launch.

New balsa cones and transitions are out. So it would have to be plastic , paper shroud stock, maybe larger in size and it can't say U.S. ARMY on the side.

How do the plastic model companies handle the issue?

There must be more money in that hobby to allow them to afford the licencing fee.

Just a guess.

Maybe the Chicom contractor objects to "US Army" and refuses to do that part.

Just another guess...

Unless the Feds now object to "US MILITARY", that worked for us before by cutting out the extra letters. Or name it something like SATYR MOON UNIT and we can do a lot of cutting ...
