Yeah, that 1% upscale is a real hoot.

I'll probably get 2, lose the first one, then fly the 2nd one on smaller motors.

Looks like the same NC as the Falcon & BrightHawk - how close is that shape to the original?

Ok, what's the DEAL here ?
Did this new Enerjet by Aerotech/Quest Nike Ram kit ever arrive ??
Haven't heard anything lately; a Spring 2023 release date is passed by almost a YEAR.
What gives ?
Hoping this is not another example of VAPORWARE.

The PPT Gary posted in the other forum from his presentation at NARCON says, "Available Spring 2024."

Ok, delayed, but hopefully soon.

Maybe AT decided to make it closer to the original, and it took time for the new molds. [wishful thinking...]

It's a 3FNC rocket. Going to the nines for exacting dimensional proportions seems to me to be a waste of time and effort. You could kit bash a Quest Superbird kit and doll it up with some decals and there's your Nike Ram.

Gary said a long time ago it will have an existing Quest nose cone. The rest is just fins, tubing, decals, etc. All stuff that any of us here can work out on our own.

Yup... It looks like an existing Quest nose cone, like on the Superbird. 35mm body tube. Streamer recovery. Gary can take another year if he needs to roll this "classic" out.
