"My all time favorite!"
jerome.kentz
To me, this is what a model rocket should look like! Some call this a basic 4FNC (four Fins and a Nose Cone) but it sure looks good! It is a fairly simple build and easy to paint. This is my go-to rocket at just about every launch. I must have launched mine over 3 dozen times by now! Flies straight and true on B and C motors. The only real con this one has is that it comes with cheaper self-sticking decals. Be sure to spray this model with a clear coat to help seal the stickers and blend them in.

"Estes US ARMY Patriot M-104 Great Kit, but Needs Upgrades"
champfluff
Love this kit, my brother and I have the same kit and I wanted to build mine differently. The decal layout shows a tail cone/ boat tail and a conduit/ launch rail that runs the length of the BT-60, not included with the kit. To make your Patriot full scale, instead of semi-scale, the boat tail and conduit will need to be included. The altitude should be improved slightly, do to the reduced drag on the aft fin can. The tail cone can be fabricated, but Estes makes a plastic transition for the BT-60 from an Estes Extreme 12. The conduit is just a strip of balsa the full length of the longer white tube in the kit. After all these external mods I still was not satisfied, so I modified the engine mount for a 24mm E Motor, slotted the body tube, added fin tabs for through tube slots, installed an ejection baffle, nylon shock cord and parachute and minimal additional nose weight, for the proper C/G stability. It looks impressive on BP motors and haven't flown it on composites yet, but will soon.

 
"This Is An Awesome First Military Style Rocke!"
leyrerwa
As a teacher of Electronics and Aerospace Technologies at a Technology Center I am always looking for exciting ways to get my students involved in activities that will challenge them but, at the same time provide them with a rewarding sense of accomplishment, increased self esteem and most importantly an opportunity to have some fun while learning. The Estes Patriot M-104 is one of the rockets I really like to use as an entry level kit within my curriculum. It provides an esay build for the students, has awesome and reliable flight characteristics and make a great looking rocket a student can be proud of!! The authentic color scheme makes the Patriot M-104 east to track in flight when using the Estes Tracker. I highly recommend the Patriot M-104 to anyone looking for an entry level military rocket that certainly doesn't look like an entry level rocket and gives excellent performance. The materials of construction will allow for many flights and the straight forward assembly instructions make the Estes Patriot M-104 a definate win,win! Clear Skies!

 
"Solid, good looking rocket"
robert_s_schmidt
A solid all around rocket. Looks good on the launch pad, flies well. Super sturdy! I put the fins on with wood glue. On a recent launch, the shock cord popped off of the parachute/nose cone and fell from the ejection height (B6-4 engine). Only damage was a partially broken off fin, which was easily glued back on with model cement. I would highly recommend it, although not necessarily for a first build.
