Great 2-Stager
By FinBurner October 14, 2014
This is a terrific rocket if you want to get into multi-stage rocketry. The rocket itself is very stable and flies great. Construction is easy and the payload bay is HUGE! I especially like the engine block at the bottom of the booster stage to help keep the booster engine from ejecting itself and allowing the 2nd stage (sustainer) to burn up the booster stage. Make sure the engines fit tight in both stages or you may have the booster slip off. It also tends to turn in to the wind, so be sure to pick a calm day to launch it.

Fun 2-stage rocket
By ipostelnik September 12, 2014
This is an easy-to-build kit that was my introduction to mutli-stage rockets. The instructions are easy to follow, the plastic nose cone and transition reduces amount of finishing work. The water-slide decals work really well and make for a cool overall look. The see-through payload compartment is very roomy. This rocket has fairly large fins, especially when launched with the booster, so it's likely to weathercock even with light wind. I flew this rocket with a camera in the payload bay, but the clear plastic distors the picture too much. I would recommend either making a hole for the camera lens or attaching it on the outside. Could be fun to fly at dusk with some glo-sticks in the payload bay.

Good Rocket
By scluedke December 11, 2015
This is a good rocket for the price, but realize it is not that large to hold cameras in the bay. There are cameras that will fit if you do your research.
