amazing rocket. i bought it for my brother and we

amazing rocket. i bought it for my brother and we had so much fun putting it together. you have to be careful about the type of engine you use for first launch though. we launched it on a C6-5 abd it disappeared from sight. parachute deployed nicely but we lost it. use lots of space on C engines!

This was my daughter's first rocket. We built it together

This was my daughter's first rocket. We built it together and took it to a local club launch. Started off with A8 motors and then tried out the B6. 6 launches and 6 recoveries. Great starter kit for sure.
