  1. Philip Dougan

    Simple build that looks great, I’ve flown 5-6 times without any damage. Have thoughts of purchasing a 2nd and modify as a 2 stage or increase motor size or maybe Estes will upscale for E & F motors.

  2. Lee

    Very Good Kit

    Very easy to get together. Getting the fins straight was the most difficult part of this kit. I liked the decals. Can’t wait to get out and fly this bird………..
