Great little rocket, easy to built and flies really nicely. the decals look good and it great fun.
This should be everyone's first rocket, I love it. It's build covers all the basics of rocketry: - fins go on individually - no single piece fin can here - a quick build apart from drying times for wood glue - traditional 'tea bag' recovery mount - very solid once built My only criticism was that the motors were too long for the motor mount and we had to shave 3-4mm off the end of each motor to make it fit. Fly it on a A8-3 first or you'll never see it again. It shifts on the pad - wow! Using a Klima B4-4 we experienced an actual disappearance as the launch button was pressed and the rocket was gone! We saw it drift over some houses in the distance a few minutes later but it was soon out of sight. Dump the parachute for a streamer if you want to fly this more than once - even with a ballistic return you'll be able to launch this again - it's that solid.
Build went well, instructions were clear as with all estes products. flew fast and high! i stupidly lost mine launching it on a C very early in the morning. it drifted infront of the bright sun and i was dazzled by the sun so i did not see where it landed!
