What better way to present the inner workings of a rocket and to help explain how rockets work than the Phantom Display Model Rocket Kit.

    An invaluable teaching tool that’s just as easy to put together as advertised. 5 stars just for this.

    Despite being clearly marked as a non-flying model, it is perfectly capable of being loaded, packed, flown, and recovered in a safe manner. Mine survived 10 flights on 1/2A6-2, A8-3, and B4-2 motors. It should be noted, however, that each ejection produced more and more melting, warping, and cracking of the plastic body tube, to the point where it blew open at the spot where the body tube glues to the green adapter ring on its 11th flight. No parachute deployment. I’m not sure if I’m willing to try to repair it after that, even with a second kit lying around to provide spare parts.

    So yes, you *can* fly it, but you’re probably better off letting this one sit on the display stand and letting an Alpha III handle the flight duties. It’s pretty much identical, save for paper motor mount and body tubes that won’t melt and will survive a lot more flights.
