All carbon fiber. All awesome. Designed around the 6G 75/7680 case, Colossus is close to the limit.

Weighing in at just 4.09 pounds sans motor, Colossus simulates anywhere from 39,000 to 44,000 depending on the motor.

At Aeronaut 2014, Colossus took to the skies on an Aerotech M685. Simulations put the flight at just over 40,000 feet above ground level.

Sadly, the rocket could not be located due to the failure of the BigRedBee GPS tracker on board. Colossus is still out there, waiting to be found. #FINDCOLOSSUS
