Default Laser-X

Title: Laser-X

Kit number: KV-33

Background Information brief: The Laser-X was initially released in 1968 in the American Rocketeer, but did not make it into the 1968 catalog released later in the year. It was the first in a series of kits incorporating all die-cut parts. Its large size and futuristic appearance made it a great rocket for small fields and demonstration launches. Reminiscent of the Estes Mars Snooper, the Laser-X became one of Centuri’s most famous kits. The original had a BC-54 balsa nose cone, but later models were migrated to plastic nose cones. The Laser-X was Centuri #KC-50 and was introduced with a price of $2.75.
The @ Laser-X is updated by using laser-cut fins. The original balsa nose cone and body tube sizes are used. The parachute is smaller to reduce drift during recovery. The original rubber shock cord is replaced with an elastic cord for longer life. The original method of attaching the shock cord has been replaced by a Kevlar® cord for greater reliability.
