Awesome beginning!

Picked up 3 of these for the kids and they love them. Super easy assembly, you can do it from the launch field! Durable as can be too. For the newbie, or for getting kids/grandkids started, there is no better way. Grab a couple of these and some A8-3's and you've got hours of fun! I cant recommend them enough for quick easy enjoyment.

I bought this rocket on amazon about a year ago,

I bought this rocket on amazon about a year ago, Put in a c6-5, launched it and out of sight, Im pretty sure mine is in low earth orbit somewhere, flying by the international space station, don't use the c engine unless you want your rocket to end up just like mine
