  1. robert priddy

    Honest flier! Using the A3 engines makes for a longer burn, a bit slower rise which is great to watch on a fatter body like this. Don’t forget the clay in the nose, use a bit of CA to seal it in there. Use minimum 4 prefer 5 sheets of wadding to keep the rubber cord from singing. It floats down, and I mean floats, on that parachute. I cut a 2 inch hole in it and it still comes down nice and easy. A great first rocket for the day to check wind.It’ll fly as high as advertised. Durable gem.

    Nice kit

    I love the nose cone, the fins could use some width to appear more scale. have had several good flights, in calm and breeze
