    I received this kit as a gift. I didn’t expect the glider to be all that impressive – but I was surprised how much I have enjoyed this rocket. The glider performs surprisingly well (didn’t do anything special with it, just followed instructions and added the proper amount of nose weight). The glider circles perfectly (perhaps I got lucky?), and on each of the first two launches, it has landed near the sustainer. With my last launch, the glider was within three feet of the sustainer. I received cheers from the club at the launch with how close the glider landing was to the rocket.
    I painted exactly as the catalog photo. The white paint on top was essential, it nearly glows in the sunlight as the glider circles. Otherwise, I might not be able to spot the glider as it circles. Carefully fit the booster engine into the booster stage – they must stay together! And carefully fit the sustainer engine into the sustainer. If you do this, as well as properly balance the glider, you will have very enjoyable flights. Be sure to have spotters to help track the pieces to aid recovery.
    This rocket was far more fun than I expected, it has become one of my favorites to launch! (And yes, it isn’t quite as configurable as supplied – but I didn’t mind, I just always launch it with the payload section).

    Best deal all around kit. Does all the things. The glider design is ingenious, though I recommend you photocopy/scan the glider laser cut, because unless you have the wherewithal to install a miniature return-guidance system you WILL want to build another one when you lose the first, and you will. Also, if you slightly dampen the glider wings and gently warp them over an AA battery (or other some such cylinder), holding the bend with an elastic until the wings dry, you will end up with one nicely performing aerofoil

    There should be a means of attaching the parachute and shock cord to the nose cone and switch the payload section in and out to allow for flying in configurations 1 and 4.

    Easy to build, Simple design. The glider flies really well if you balance it properly. The one complaint I have is that the first stage does not have a retention ring to help ensure the first stage separates. It relies on wrapping the first stag engine in tape to accomplish this. Unfortunately, if you dont use enough tape, the first stag engine will blow out and the second stage will burn through the first… I will end up rebuilding the first stage to fix this.
