Did you find this on eBay? Would you be interested in selling it or trading for it? If so, I would be interested in it. Please let me know.

I believe that I may still have the plans for this kit. If so, I will scan and post them here.

Thanks,

I am curious as to how these pods stay attached and then are “jettisoned”. Looks like they might fall off or stay attached based on friction alone. Or, am I missing something?

Basically, yes, the pods stay attached based on friction. The idea is that two dowels and friction will hold each strap-on engine pod in place until the engine gases force the pods to jettison.

I can find nothing more about this rocket or company. I can’t even tell if it is cluster or staged either without opening it.

Does anyone have info on this rocket or company?


A rare kit you have there. Faithwalker has it right, an renamed SAI Pulsar. I had a Pulsar way back when, and it was cool to fly. Treed it on third flight.
