Bid on the First Production UP! Cup Kit from Odd’l Rockets

The UP! Cup will soon be released as a Skill Level 2 kit by Odd’l Rockets. This unique rocket kit is an excellent choice for flying in small fields. It leaves and thick column of smoke as it rises majestically on a B or C motor. At apogee, the motor mount ejects, coming down on a streamer, while the rest of the UP! Cup floats gently to earth.

The UP! Cup will soon be available for retail purchase. In the mean time, the first production kit, #1, is being auctioned on eBay. The kit is numbered and initialled by its designer, Hans “Chris” Michielssen. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to the American Red Cross.

For more information, and to bid on the first production UP! Cup kit, please visit eBay.
