"Tip for Painting"
copyme101 (Boston)
Instead of trying to paint the silver triangles on the fins I used silver Monokote. Just cut the triangles and iron on.

"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 looking rocket, but you'll work at getting it to look like the package art"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
Kind of a fire-and-forget rocket, the Hi-Flier is a good looker with some flaws. Painting is kind of a pain because the only thing on the decal is the Hi-Flier name for the side of the rocket. The white on the fins needs to be masked off and painted, doable, but it bumps the skill level up a bit. A and B flights are no problem, but C flights will require nose weight, which is not provided. The engine hook mounts outside the rocket, a feature that I've hated since the days of the Centuri Scram Jet. The design is great, but I'd be more likely to spend the extra money and go with the Hi-Flier XL.
