Bored This Winter? Buy This Never Fired Russian Liquid Propellant Rocket And Become The Hit Of The Neighborhood!
It has been a while since we’ve seen a person selling a cool rocket engine on eBay. We’re guessing that being quarantined and stuck at home maybe forced the rocket owners to mess with their own stuff rather than sell it. Anyway, we found one and this thing has never been fired! It’s the equivalent of the “old lady owned” car that’s as good as the day it was built. We’re not thinking that this sucker comes with a user’s manual and we’re not 100% sure that the thing is actually complete. Maybe some assembly required.
Here’s what we’d suggest someone else do with this piece of iron curtain engineering. Jet pack. The weight of the engine is 105lbs. The weight “with packaging” which we’re guessing is a shipping crate is 220lbs so if you’re a strapping young lad, it seems wearable. Our lawyers are saying that we cannot recommend you strap a potentially suspect Russian liquid rocket to your ass. So don’t do that….but maybe find someone who wants to.
Here’s some stuff from the eBay ad:
