ImageKnown as the "Sir Winston," it definitely shares something in common with its namesake. This is an original Hott Rockets kit with an 11.5" diameter and weighing in at 105 lbs loaded!

The rocket flies on an Aerotech N2000 and reaches about 8000 ft each time. The Overmoes have flown this monster about 6 times all on same N2000 motor. The rocket is recovered on 2 chutes at apogee one on body and one on the nosecone.

Alan Overmoe certifed on this rocket. It did suffer some significant damage after its flight in 2003 but it made up for it in 2004 with an absolutely beautiful flight on an EX motor at Hellfire 10 and every HellFire since. The rocket again suffered some damage at HellFire 13 but they expect it to be back in top form for HellFire again this year.
