"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.

"A fun build and a great rocket"
dvmanning (Sparta, MO)
I build this kit about six weeks ago and launched it this weekend. The kit was a fun build. Right now it it the largest of my rockets. The instructions were very good. I rounded all of my fin surfaces to enable the better airflow over the fin surfaces. The first flight of the rocket was with a Estes A8-3 motor and the second launch was with Estes B6-4. The second flight reached its peak altitude and the ejection charge activated and separated the nose cone and deployed the chute. The rocket returned without damage. This rocket is fun to launch and will go with me to all of launch sessions. I consider myself an advanced modeler and I would recommend purchasing as part of you modeling tools an Estes Fin alignment tool to mount your fins true to the tube body. Before you assembly any item to the tube be sure and lightly sand the wax off of the tube for better assembly. Be patient and don't get in a hurry. If you choose to use sanding sealer on your balsa parts and never have used it before, be sure to read up on how to apply and follow the directions. The extra time needed to apply will be well worth the finished rocket. Pros: an easy build Cons: none

 
"Poor quality control"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
I picked one of these kits up on the cheap because 18mm powered BT-60 rockets are great on my home field. One of the first things I noticed was that one of the fins was shorter than the other three. Not a huge problem, but it made me wonder. The kits builds up fine, and with a little work looks pretty decent. Sticker decals are useless.

 
"Easy to build, fun to fly"
jmattingly13
This is a fantastic kit. It's easy to build, so novices shouldn't be discouraged by it, and I got to practice some techniques I had seldom used--namely putting a good deal of effort into a nice paint job. I also used this model to teach myself foiling the fins. I've seen multiple copies of this model at launches I go to, a testament to its solid design and construction.
