    A Classic!

    The Wizard was the first rocket I ever built and launched. I have some wonderful memories of that rocket. When I recently re-discovered model rocketry. I had to look and see if the Wizard was still around. I’m glad to see it is. A great rocket that seemed to fly on forever! Keep up the great work, Estes!

    Easy and fun!

    I built this rocket when I was younger and in school. It’s what got me into rocketry to begin with. It’s incredibly easy to build, not to mention to fly. Great model for children to start getting into model rocketry.

    I wasn’t a fan of the suggested paint scheme, but then again I rarely am 🙂 I built it anyway, and it flies great.

    Great Rocket

    We launched the Wizard for the first time this afternoon. Even though we were only using 1/2A engines, it launched much higher than our Moon Mutt rocket. Can’t wait to get it out on the launch pad with a bigger engine! Very durable, we launched it 3 times so far, and it landed nose-cone into the dirt all three times without any damage to the nose-cone or body.
