    Lives up to its name

    We built the Hi-Flier with my son and it’s one of his favorite rockets to fly. It leaps off the pad even with an A engine and always delivers great flights.

    a fun kit

    I am very glad I ordered this kit. It was just a fun rocket to assemble and reminded me of when I did assemble them as a youngster. It was easy to follow the instructions and no part of the kit gave me a challenge. The assembly was quick other then the glue drying. I haven’t painted it, but that should be an easy process and it should also be incredibly fun to fly it!
