  1. RocketMan3000

    Rocket and launchpad were both made well. The part that holds the motor was a pain to build with slow-drying glue because it comes in 5 parts that need to be glued together. The launchpad is nice because it is almost fully adjustable, coming with a hole for the pro launch rod. The electric igniter is made well but is hard to use one-handed (which doesn’t really matter). Overall it is made well and I fully suggest that you buy it. I bought mine at Hobby Hobby and everything there for rockets is like half price.

    Great Rocket

    I have went though around 4 of these because I love them. This was my first rocket kit years back (made the mistake of using c engine on first flight lol). I would recommend this to beginners who have used ARF rockets E2X, and skill level 1 rockets before this and to experienced people who are just wanting to have fun.

    GREAT ROCKET BUT MUST USE ENERGIZER MAX BATTERY OR IT WONT WORK! ESTES NOTE: The battery statement pertains to the orange 9V launch controller. The rocket itself does not take a battery.

    Excellent first rocket

    Always was fascinated and a small child when my father who recently passed would launch all his different rockets… Was always simply amazed by them… Now my dad is gone and I have a 6 year old daughter myself I deceived to buy this amazingly wonderful piece of entertainment equipment… I’ve now purchased a second an plan to buy one each week to launch with her… Got her the foot stomp air rocket and that is a hit for her and her friends… Then daddy breaks out the thousand footers and really launches… So far 12 successful launches landings and recoveries

    Launch Controller

    Had Family over for our 7 year old Grandson’s Birthday Party.
    Followed al instructions to a tee. Came time to launch, controller would not work. I wonder how easy it will be to exchange for a functional controller. My son and I have launched many rockets before without any issues. he looked at it and I looked at it. just not functional. ESTES NOTE: IF the controller is the orange one that requires a 9V battery, a very high quality battery is required. Ones we have tested and know will work are the following: Fuji EnviroMAX (HOME DEPOT). Rayovac Ultra Pro (WALMART/AMAZON). Energizer Max (HOME DEPOT/WALMART).
