||Cougar 660! Even
the name sounds FAST!
And fast she
is, too! Employing a paper reduction shroud to cut drag, this model also sports a
parabolic nose cone and 1/64", aircraft grade plywood for the fins.
Also provided are 3 different fin patterns, giving you the
ultimate in customization for such a model. Choose from parabolic, swept parabolic
and asymmetric parabolic.

Rounding out this champion is the inclusion of a Pop-Lug
kit with full instructions. The Pop-Lug allows you to launch your Cougar 660 on any
conventional launch pad (with a 1/8" launch rod) WITHOUT the drag penalty of carrying
a launch lug on the rocket (up to a 15% savings in drag!). The Pop-Lug
stays on the launch pad allowing the Cougar 660 to climb to incredible altitudes,
unencumbered with added drag!
||FlisKits has done something to
competition flying that I
|am sure has been
difficult to achieve in the past. They have created a Streamer Duration Kit worthy of
purchase for even the most competitive of fliers, one that should swiftly become popular
at meets across the country. Moreover, it's a great entry/starter model for rocketeers new
to competition and many of the features/building techniques make for good teaching
material regarding competitive construction methods. - Carl T.
