Silver Moon/Orbit Jet
This was my favorite show when I was a kid. OK so the acting was a bit hokey but they had one of the best looking rockets, the Orbit Jet/ Silver Moon! It's graceful lines were unmatched by any others. There seems to be two slightly differing tail fins used. One had a seemingly concave leading edge the other a convex leading edge. The one I'll call the Orbit Jet the other the Silver Moon. Note; the graphics shown are labeled wrong.
A molds for the Silver Moon has been built. Current work is in the area of mold release and quality to produce a consistent result.
The Silver Moon has been
successfully flown on the C5-3 cluster to heights of 200 ft. D12-3s
[not recommended] E15-4, F25-4, G40-4, H110 and H153 successfully.
Height: 39 inches dependent on model
Dia: 3.9 inches
Weight: ~ 400-500 grams [ without motor cartridge loaded ]
