  1. Alexander

    great starter kit

    this was a lot of fun to build with my 8 yr old son.
    Even more fun when we took it out to fly. Always remember to put fresh batteries in the launch system. spent a few hours flying multiple times with various size engines.
    strong and stable flights given the strength of the actual model.

    awesome rocket

    this was my first model rocket. it goes super high and is easy and fun to build. It almost goes out of sight with B6-4 motors so the C6-5 motors might be a little much. I highly reccomend this rocket and launch set.

    taser is a great one

    this rocket is a great one. however it goes high enough that there should be as little wind as possible. the launch set is great and you can launch most rockets from it. My only dislike is the motor mount which i found hard to get the motor in and out and put on the cap.

  4. nicholas

    very good

    Great flight, don’t forget to remove the safety cap on the launch rod.

    Taser is good for beginners. It only takes a couple hours and the next day you can launch it.

    pretty nice rocket. first launch i used B engines. second launch i used c engines. it never returned.

  7. Lost Rocket

    Find Open Land

    Be sure you find a very wide open area to lauch. I launched on approx 1 acre of pasture with no trees. Guess where my rocket went. Straight into the woods. Never found it! Have to go buy another one.

    This was my first time launching a rocket. I put it together a few weeks ago (Pretty easy assembly) and waited for a nice, not windy day. Today I launched it 3 times. I used the b engines that were recomended. It said it would go up 525 feet and it sure looked like it did. It was fun and easy to launch. It went straight up, the parachute ejected, and it landed not very far from where it was launched all 3 times. It is a great starter kit plus it comes with the launch pad and controller thing so you can use any rocket on it. Overall, this is a great beginner rocket.,

  9. First Flight

    First flight awesome, second didnt come down.

    Ok, I have nothing against this launch set, I love it. Just dont do it in the desert. The first flight went as planed but the second… it didnt come down with the C6-5 engine. But it is a great rocket. I highly recomend it to begginers(Like me(:).

    This rocket is awsome. It flies up to 1,100 feet.
    Or at least that is what says. It is very good.
