The Supernova is a two-stage model rocket capable of reaching high altitudes while using cheap engines as type B and C. The fins of the first stage are "reversed" and give the rocket the truly unique aspect.
The Supernova can also bring a small payload like a mini-altimeter aloft, in its transparent compartment. The construction is traditional, the fins are laser cut balsa to be finished and glued. The model is then colored as you wish or following the pattern shown on the packaging.
This rocket requires a launching pad with 3 mm launch rod like the Estes Porta Pad II, the Estes Astron Launch Pad or the Klima Launch Pad, and an electric launch controller as the Estes Electron Beam, the Estes Astron Launch Controller or the Klima Launch Controller.
