Default Citation Patriot returning?

I see that Estes is supposed to bring back the Citation Patriot early next year (yay!) But looking at the image of it on the Estes website the PNC looks too pointy. Maybe not.

Looks like a PNC-60AH to me. If not, I'd just get one out of a Super Alpha kit.

It is the correct nose cone which is the same one used on the Goblin, if memory serves me.

Different sizes.
Citation Patriot is PNC-60AH (Red Max, Mean Machine, Screamin Mimi, Super Alpha, Omega)
Goblin is PNC-55AO (Photon Probe, Photon Disruptor, BBZ, Vigilante, Cobra 1500)

I'm sorry your correct. The nose cone is the same as used on the Der Red Max and Mean Machine.

Those two nose cones are on some of the most classic Estes birds. I've turned a bunch of them in various scales.

Great news! I always wanted a Patriot, but never got around to buying one. This time, I'm gonna stock up!

Even though I built a clone of this years ago, I'll pick one of these up. Despite the basic 3FNC design, it looked neat in the catalogs way back when, and I still like it. It flies once a year at our July 4th (ish) launch.

I've saved one injection molded PNC60AH to use on this or a Der Red Max some day
