My son's first rocket build
By theft19 September 27, 2016
My 7 year-old son got this for his birthday, and was able to read the instructions and assemble the launcher with minimal help (pushing launch rod together). That same evening, he was launching a RTF rocket he also received. When it came time to assemble the Flash rocket, he was again able to do most of it by himself, other than needing some assistance in lining up the fin tabs to snap into place and looping the parachute cords onto the nose cone. We have launched the rocket 10 times since then, and it is still in perfect condition and ready to launch again! All together, the launch system and the rocket are perfect for beginners!
