This is the AeroTech 56" Barracuda Rocket Kit. Sleek, slender and over 4 feet tall, the Barracuda is sure to impress everyone with its standout good looks and majestic flights. As with all our kits, the features include molded fins and nose cone, and a no-wadding ejection system!

AeroTech model rockets are not your average rocket kit. The large size, sleek aerodynamics and adult styling will single out AeroTech rockets as something special. But, the real revolution is on the inside! When you take a look at the included components, that’s when you will see the difference. With features that include large, colorful, self adhesive decals, adapters that allow the use of various sizes of AeroTech motors, and strong, light Aero-Fiber centering rings, AeroTech is the obvious choice for anyone looking to discover how much fun big rockets can be.

Mid-Power Rockets:
Beyond "traditional" model rocketry is what many call "mid-power rocketry". Rockets in this category typically use composite propellant model rocket motors in the `E` through `G` sizes, although black powder `E` model rocket motors are also available. Mid-power model rockets generally weigh less than two pounds, but can fly higher than traditional model rockets. Mid-power model rockets containing no more than 4.4 ounces (125 grams) of propellant and weighing no more than 3.3 pounds (1500 grams) may also be flown without special permission or licenses. Mid-power model rockets are not necessarily more difficult to build than traditional model rockets. Composite propellant mid-power model rocket motors are more expensive than the smaller black powder model rocket motors ($5-$27 per flight), but usually cost less per unit of power. Mid-power model rocket motors are produced in both single-use and reloadable types.
