Fun rocket to launch and build. Utilized the "E" size

Fun rocket to launch and build. Utilized the "E" size engine to launch it. Had a few issues with getting it ignited, but after figuring out you had to bury the igniter deep in the engine pocket it went off without a hitch. Also, need a better fin securing system to the rocket. One broke on the first and second launch. I've contacted ESTES on how to order replacements. Additionally, the rocket engine holder caught fire and burned. Working on rebuilding the engine compartment now and will try the "D" size engines next time to see if the issue continues. The colors on the rocket make it easy to spot going up and coming down.

Fun Build...a lot of parts for building, but nothing too

Fun Build...a lot of parts for building, but nothing too difficult. If you enjoy building, this will be a fun project. I haven't launched it yet, as I need some extra room for a safe recovery. I used 30 min Z-Poxy for the construction adhesive. Z-Poxy Finishing Resin mixed with Micro Balloons to fill the tube spirals and balsa grain on the fins. Spread on thinly, it does a great job getting ready for sandable primer.
