Fun rocket to build and fly

Perfect little rocket for shooting in small parks with an A8-3.

CONS. Stickers.
NO Stickers for the fins, I used a combo of spray paint and hand painting the stripe.

Lives up to its name

It went incredibly high on a C6-5 engine, and I didn't even see it come down. I plan on getting a new hi-flier rocket, but I don't think I'll fly it with a C engine again.
