Largest Ever Model Rocket Launched

On Saturday, a man in Maryland successfully launched a 1:10 scale model of a Saturn V Rocket.  The Saturn V is the rocket that took NASA astronauts to the Moon during the Apollo missions.  The launch of the 36 foot tall rocket also breaks the record for the largest model rocket ever launched.

Very impressive, but with 8 N engines and a central P engine and the thing only got to 4000'? That thing is far, far more powerful than many of the early sounding rockets which got to 40 miles altitude.

I guess they were going for aethetics, not pure performance.

If it were dick thing, DaveL, it would have been kind of embarrassing. He only got about halfway, then stopped.

Cool that it landed upright like that. Must have had a really heavy bottom.

That's some expensive hobby, I bet.
