"Just the right size!"
jayorr (Utah)
Large and light weight, easy to build and fly. I left some parts off mine (motor block, plastic motor retainer, coupler,extra airframe), and have a shorter, lighter version (about 8 ounces). Perfect for E motors. Add the booster, an extra E motor, and you have Rocket Nirvana!

"Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't"
This is a nice rocket for a quick build: Assemble tonight, launch tomorrow morning. Sometimes as a modeler you like to spend hours upon hours gluing, sanding, shaping, masking, spray painting, etc. Sometimes you just want a quick build to launch right away. If so, this kit is for you. Replaced the paper shock cord anchor with a Kevlar cord attached to the motor mount. Keep on rock(ateer)in'.

"best of the best"
Got this rocket two years ago many launches different motors thats E,F,Gs what a rocket for the money.Built this with Ca glue and epoxy moved the motor stop forward to take Aerotech RMS 29-40-120 case.I have launched with two stage to 2318ft and to 3543ft yes 3543ft with Aerotech G64-4W. Go see on youtube estes ascender used Estes Altimeter. The only thing to change is the SHOCK CORD.Also drill a 1/8 hole in payload section to keep noise from popping off.The Best Rocket in my Fleet of 23. So get one or two.GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A BLAST.hippydave A-G ROCKETRY

"A great entry into mid-power rocketry"
I bought this rocket as the first of mine to fly on a 29mm motor. It was a treat to build, becoming familiar with some of the considerations of building a higher-power rocket, and a much bigger one, than I ever had. It might be E2X by mid-power standards but it still requires a lot of patience and attention. I assembled it with lots of CA glue for the plastics and a combination of epoxy and Gorilla Glue on the fins, which worked very nicely, although it was a bit heavy. I had to shave some plastic off the fins to fit them into the slots. I can't say that the looks are particularly standout among my collection, but it's certainly not ugly once finished and looks great in the sky. It is a bit slow to lift off on an Estes F-15, but on an Aerotech composite with a higher initial thrust it practically teleported right off. Being a little heavy, I found it necessary to use a shorter delay charge so that it wouldn't tip over before ejection. With the payload section, this is a rocket that gives a flexibility to the first-time mid-power rocketeer, and the plastic fins make it forgiving as well. I enjoyed this rocket immensely.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
