Good starter set, but watch the launch rod.
By Kolvir July 8, 2013
This is an good starter set and well worth the extra cost over a launch kit without the rocket. The Taser rocket is quite easy to assemble, with the only slightly tricky part being the alignment of the fins. They are plastic and pretty forgiving, no sanding required. After the base is glued together the fins fit in slots on the base where they must be held until set. Two of the four slots on my kit held the fins fast with little help needed, the other two were where the halves of the base was glued and were slightly bigger slots that allowed for more wiggle room and required some adjustment to make sure they were lined up correctly. It isn't as big of a deal as I am making it, just something to keep an eye on if your kit is a little loose there too. The decals were self stick and easily applied. The rocket flew well. The launch pad is highly portable with all parts except the rod able to fit in a small tackle box. Works as advertised with one exception - the rod. This isn't my first launch kit, but I could not get the included launch rod useable. I followed all of the directions on its assembly and the joint in the middle had such large overhang, for lack of a better word, on both sides that it made it unusable. I think the roll pin that holds the two pieced together was put in incorrectly. I bought a 3' one piece brass rod at a local hardware store and was good to go. You might want to be sure your rod assembles correctly and/or have a spare handy before planning a launch day.
