Nike Smoke Build
By klnjberry April 15, 2013
This kit is really a nice kit. The kit has a lot of good details in the nose cone and the fins. Instructions were easy to read. The one item that I did not like was the shock cord. The kit has an elastic cord. I did not use the one that was in the kit. I used a normal kevlar tubular cord and attached the kevlar to the motor mount. My first flight was with a F motor and it was a great flight. I would suggest everyone to buy this kit......

Great looking and a good size too
By rbeard2 July 8, 2013
I just got my Nike Smoke from the wife for my birthday (14 years and she finally gets me) It's a great looking kit with some very cool features. First the fins - they're plastic - but not the blow-molded kind like the old Maxi Brute Honest John - these are heavy, perfectly molded, scale fins that come in two parts and glue together seamlessly. Second, the sturdy 3 inch body tube comes pre-slotted and is also cut with great precision. Lastly, he nosecone has some cool scale details like rivets and access panels molded in and is really really nice Very strait forward assembly, the kit is so simple it's hard to screw up I agree with the previous reviewer about swapping out the typical 3 paper folds and glue shock cord mount for the Quest style which is braided kevlar inside the tube tied to an equal length of elastic cord outside making the shock cord twice as long as Estes supplies. Also, If you are a power junkie (like me) you may want to leave the supplied motor block out so that extended 29mm reload cases will fit (high power certification required for H motors). I will let you all know if the Nike Smoke can stand up to the H238T Worth the 50 plus just for the cool factor alone.

Great flyer!
By mekelley June 8, 2013
This is an easy kit to build. One change I made was to drill a small hole in the forward centering ring and threaded through a length of kevlar. This was tied around the motor tube and fastened with CA. At the forward end of the kevlar I tied a small loop so that it was about 1 below the forward edge of the body tube. I CA'd the loop and tied the length of shock cord to the loop. This helps keep the elastic away from the ejection charge flash. I also use super thin CA and apply a thin layer to the inside of the forward end of the BT (about 1.5) to reduce zippering. I flew this recently on an Aerotech E18-4 reloadable-altitude was approx. 450' and it flew straight as an arrow!

Excellent Kit
By FinBurner October 4, 2014
i love this kit. The plastic fins make for easy and fast construction and the plastic nose cone has a good amount of detail. The parts are very good quality, although I would rather see rip-stop nylon used for the parachute rather than the normal nylon used in this kit.
