RETRO Series
ORION 3"


ORION 3" is large. The six inch diameter is big and the scale model of the old discontinued Centuri kit provides many double takes at the launch site. A 75mm host mount provides more versatility than you can imagine.

Definition Of Terms
ORION 3" was released to the HPR world when a typical home made Centuri scale-up was a small rocket. Eyes popped at the HUGE manifestation of grand times past, and of the world's most popular model rocket company. Few people have missed the experience of flying either an original Centuri ORION or a kitbash of it. This kit pushed along an already grassroots demand for bigger versions of the very finest rockets on the planet and memories of childhood, but taken to the logical extreme.
All U.S. Rockets RETRO Series kits feature pre-cut plywood fins, heavy duty airframe tubes, recovery harness, illustrated assembly and flight instructions, decal and all the high quality parts needed to successfully assemble and fly a high performance model rocket. These kits represent the state of the art in technology, performance and cost efficiency. They use USR standards such as "Interchange Mounts"™. They feature exceptional quality parts such as aerospace specification airframe tubes, and plywood fins. Launcher, motors, glue, sandpaper, sealer and paint not included.


The Centuri™ kit was extremely good.
The USR kit is better™.
