I had the original Mach 10. I thought it was the coolest looking rocket there was. To me it just looked plain mean with that big open maw at the front! Mine flew like crap. Years later my friend built one around a 2.6" tube and it was AMAZING! It flew like a dream and almost flew AWAY on several occasions. I built a rough prototype for the 4" RC one and IT flew great! It took me 8 years
to finally get the one in the picture flying, but its worth it. Now that I have smaller radio gear, I am going to make a 3" one that will fly nicely on Ds and Es.
