HI-TEST 2650
35th Anniversary Edition

| 25th Anniversary Edition |

HI-TEST 2650 is a high performance sounding rocket using a cluster of three 29mm motors in each stage. Construction is simplified by wedge fin attach which self aligns and provides stronger attach points for the fins. The inspired style of this rocket kit has seen many small time clones, but never a quality replacement. Our first kit and still the industry's finest. The 35th Anniversary edition of the Hi-Test 2650 is slightly shortened to fit in 18" packaging to make hobby store distributon possible for the first time. The question is, is the world ready for this much power?

LDRS-1 in August 1982 had a plethora of U.S. Rockets kits including several
Hi-Test 2650's. On the left is LDRS-1 host Chris pearson with his. Thanks Chris.

LDRS-1 8-82 was a great venue for the U.S. Rockets Hi-Test 2650, our first kit.
It was also popular for our Hi-Test 2225, the two stage, three cluster 24mm
motor variant. The first rocket of LDRS-1 was a U.S. Rockets kit now sold as
the basic Model Rocket series Start. Become part of history! Oh look, there is
the Mongrel Chris flew and landed in and recovered from an Apple tree!

Danville, IL 11-94 was a great venue for the U.S. Rockets Hi-Test 2650.
This flight was with three Rocketflite BP sparky motors!
