    My friend launched this rocket and it litterally went up to the stars easily over 900 ft. It probably disenigrated in midair.

    Great Mini-Motor Bird

    Easy build (watch not to put fins upside down). Flies like a champ! Colour schema does not make for easy finding, thank goodness for colored streamer. Great for smaller fields with 1/4A or 1/2A. Get one!

    Too cool

    This little rocket is sweet. I love the classic star trooper. Its a cool looking rocket. I am just working up the courage to fly it,its soo nice I dont want to loose it. Either way im happy to have purchased another classic.

    yeyy!! fun!!!

    A lot of fun. A little rocket but it sure takes off fast and furiously. It goes pretty high too. Lost it in the woods but found it later and can’t wait to shoot it off again!!!!!! You won’t be disappointed, and I also had a lot of fun decorating the rocket before lift off.

    Smooth Rocket

    I really liked this one, I almost glued the fins on upside down because I wasn’t paying attention. Launching this rocket was fun just like the other selection of mini-motor rockets. Great build for children or beginners.

    Great for my little brother.

    I have Just started getting into model rockets and my little brother who is 12 also wanted to get into it so I believe this is perfect for him.

    High Flier!

    Very fun to build with my son and flies high and true. Easy to recover with 1/4 to 1/2 A3, but I lost it with an A10 motor… so I’ll just have to build another one!
    Worth adding to your mini collection!

    I built this and launched it on an A10-3T. Beautiful boost to about 650 ft. Found afterwards! My brother wants to build one with the alternate configuration like Centuri did back in ’73.
