    Great first Rocket

    We just used the Wizard at a 4-H Rocket camp. Built them with 14 kids ages 8-12. They were a great choice – not too difficult to build, cool to look at and boy, did they fly! The Wizard has always been the “first rocket” of all of our kids also.

    Works great on mini engines

    I built this and put in an adapter for a mini engine. It flew great on 1/2A3-4T. I love seeing the rocket come to full apagee and the nose cone pop off. Great fun!!

    I loved this rocket because it was easy to build and didn’t take long to build. I liked to paint it. I used a dark blue color. Had I known it was going to go so high I would have painted it with a brighter color. I used a c6-5 and it flew so high I couldn’t even see it! I only saw a tiny speck when the orange streamers popped out.

    This rocket is a very high flying rocket for a skill level 1.If you put a “B” engine in it, flies 900 feet straight up!

    Good build

    The build is almost as fast as it flies. Bring binoculars when running a “C” engine, you’re going to need them!
