The instant I saw the Estes Jetliner I just had to have one. This probably should be a skill level 2 kit as there is a few extra steps. The main wing is cut out for the engine tab, which makes alignment a breeze. Also pay attention to aligning the wing to be straight with the body tube.
I thought this kit would be a little underpowered with mini engines, so in installed an 18mm engine mount. Turns out the first flight with an A8-3 was indeed underpowered and the rocket crash landed before deployment. A B6-4 was a perfectly straight flight to about 300 feet. I also added Alaska Airlines decals to the kit. Now I need to buy another one so I can turn it into a Delta Airlines Jetliner.
