"Estes Star Orbiter Cost Affordable High Power Rocketry+Mods"
champfluff
I like this kit, don't like the paint scheme, too dark. Alternate fins black and mirrored aluminum and it will be easier to visually locate Flights are straight up, with very little oscillation. Now the mods, upgrade shock cord to braided nylon, or Kevlar, install an ejection baffle, plywood centering rings, epoxy for assembly and if your bold, up power to 38mm, after all it's I.D. is 41mm. From the inside, reinforce the plastic nose cone and body tubes with epoxy. I am designing a modified Star Orbiter for an upscaled and up powered Comanche 3 using 3x29mm BP E,or F motors, swapping out the plastic motor retainer, for 3 aluminum motor retainers and it should see over a mile in altitude. Super Comanche 3

 
"Easy to build, great flyer!"
dewaldron1 (545 Meadowood Lane, Sierra Vista AZ 8563)
This excellent kit builds a very nice model. Nice to look at, nice flyer! I have flown this model on Estes E12's (24mm with an adapter) and E16's (29mm standard mount). Easily exceeds 1000'. I have made two changes to the stock model, 1) replaced the plastic 18 parachute with a bright orange nylon 18 (TopFlight) and 2) I fashioned 3 balsa strakes inline with the main fins about half way up the rocket body (1/8 x 1/16 strips about 2 long). This really helps keep the rocket flying straight without any corkscrewing. Paint it as you like, but recommend high visibility colors!

 
"Great Mid-power Starter Kit"

Very versatile rocket that you can do a lot with for a very good price.
