    Remember to add a significant amount of weight as the Meteor is a real tail-sitter; Airfix recommend 15gms. Tamiya provided a large weight in their kit but Airfix don’t but the design of the cockpit means that you can stuff fishing weights behind the seat. I am lucky . "Meteor M N" unfortunately failed in as it did not separate from the rocket. "Meteor M N" is the new satellite which has just been successfully launched. Meteor M N2 and M N is often abbreviated as just "Meteor M2" and "Meteor M". In the past there was Meteor M N1, but this satellite is no longer operational.
