Great build that offers a challenge
By Bubba02STi October 12, 2012
Fun build to build and also offers a challenge to any amateur rocketeer... also the vaga offers a flights and lift offs of every nature while being able to utilize every launch field (with appropriate motor)... on the lower D's this rocket has slow elegant lift offs with a fairly low highly visible apogee and ejection... or take it to the top with an e9 and let it rip off the pad and scream to the clouds...

Great kit!
By Tarasdad October 11, 2012
Estes really hit a home run with the Vagabond! All parts are high quality and fit well. Assembly is a breeze and once it's painted you end up with a great looking rocket! This one has a permanent placi in my collection for sure!

The Vagabond is a sweet rocket!
By ironthread August 2, 2013
The kit is very straightforward, and fun to build. I didn't have any trouble with it at all, and because of that I had plenty of time to give it a nice custom finish even with the local rocketry club launch coming up the next day. People at the launch recognized it as a good rocket and even with the custom paint, I was asked, Hey, is that a Vagabond? I got many compliments on it, and it flew straight and beautifully first flight on a D engine. It'll take E, and that's next on my list! Fun build, exciting launches, highly recommended if you want a big rocket for little cash.

Great choice for an E-motor
By wallyum April 2, 2014
The Vagabond is another great looking, great performing 3fnc bird from Estes. I've always had a soft spot for the simple paint schemes that pair gloss white with another color and a plain black decal. The Wizard and Stinger were two from the past that I liked in particular. Add the Vagabond to that list. Catalog color is white and orange, but the Vagabond fin can can be painted any color you like and still look great with the decal. Performance is another plus for this bird. D and E capable, so flights over 1000 feet are possible if you have the landing space.
