  1. Donald

    Easy kit with alot of variety

    The neatest part of this kit is being able to change the look with the many fin configurations available. It flies well and is very quick. Great kit!

  2. connor


    great rocket flew great

  3. JimmyJames

    Well designed

    A super beginner rocket that is also fun for the advanced modeler looking to experiment. My 6 yr old and I put this together quickly (three fin configuration; we want to stretch its limits) and it flew and was recovered successfully.
    I think this would make a great classroom rocket with multiple launches of multiple configurations.

    GREAT ROCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think it’s great because you get to pick how many fins you want on the rocket from 3 to 5. i did 5. It is a great rocket for people who want a harder level 1rocket.
