Spotlight Review

"Great for Children"
I have used this rocket in a Summer Camp setting for several years. They are easy to put together with a little adult supervision (my campers are 9-12). They fly great - we have been using a B engine. The kids love launch day and the parents are always very impressed.

"Wildly versatile skill level 1 bird"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
I've bought Vikings on a couple of occasions, but until recently I'd never built one as intended. It's another rocket with a John Deere paint scheme that does nothing for me as pictured on the package, but the Centuri paint scheme is one that I liked a lot better. It's also a great first step in recreating another old Centuri bird, the Vector V. I've picked Vikings up to take with me to launches in the event that someone shows an interest in the hobby. It makes for a great give-away bird.

"Another great little high-altitude performer"
rbeard2 (Dayton, OH)
I built mine with all 5 fins but 3 or 4 is also a possibility. The rocket accepts up to an 18mm C motor but really, this guy is so small, i think it is just begging for a 13mm to 18mm motor mount adapter like the Quest Engine adaptor 13mm/18mm available on this website for under $2 bucks! this is a great rocket for classrooms and scouts as well because it can be assembled using CA or white glue (your choice) and the fin design allows a bunch of different design combinations for that custom touch. The rocket flies well on any of the 18mm or,(with adapter), 13mm motors but it will be gone GONE! on anything larger than a B.

"Great Rocket"
Great rocket, low price and fast shipping. Hopefully it lasts for many flights
