    Well built!

    Great little bird. Well built & durable. Like the solid fin assembly. B6-4 worked well. Out of sight with a C. Good flying!

    First Rockets

    I got this as one of my first rockets. It was so cool that now I am a serious rocketeer.

  3. David

    Excellent Sport and Demo Rocket

    Last year I spotted several of the Athena in the Clearance section at a nearby Hobby Lobby. Bought one and flew it with an A8-3. Even with that engine, flew pretty high and had a nice, safe recovery. Plan to use it for demo and sport launches.
