"Estes rockets are junk"
cdpforever06272015
I’m not too find about putting together Estes rockets but the hobby store near me just opened back up(covid-19) and the high flyer was on sale for $6. So I decided to purchase it while I’m waiting for my LOC and aerotech kits to come in the mail. The reason why I don’t like Estes is because they are sloppy and you get glue every and it sticks to everything except for what you are building.

"Very Good Rocket"
henryvstone
This rocket is and excellent choice for beginners, because it is relatively easy to build as being very powerful. Pros: 1.) Runs on most common A-C engines. 2.) Easy to build. 3.) Goes very high. Cons: 1.) Wooden fins may fall of on landing (This can be repaired). 2.) Lots off small parts can go missing (Common in almost all model rocket kits).

 
"Went big and lost it"
Rocket_starship (Boonton, NJ)
I loved the ease of building this rocket. The fins went on without a hitch, the rest assembled very nicely. I launched it on a B6 to start and recovered it, however went for the C6 and it was out of sight. Going to try a heavier nose cone weight this time and hope to not lose it. Whoever found it in Point Harbor, NC, have a blast!

 
"Great rocket with well deserved name."
nate4531
This is a great, easy to build rocket. It was a simple build, but the paint job was the most difficult part, as everything, everything must be painted except for the decal on the side. She only flew once, but what a flight it was!! I loaded it up with an A8-5 and launched. only after I tried to see the rocket once the motor burned out did I realize just how dark it really was outside, and I never saw it after Apogee. other than the simple fact that it flies ridiculously high this is a great kit!
