Another great little high-altitude performer
By rbeard2 March 22, 2013
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.

Awesome rocket kit. It goes together easily, flys well, and comes back to earth safely.

It's a Screamer...
By RocketYoda May 29, 2013
Actually purchased this Viking as part of an Educator's pack for my daughters class on Science Day. Inexpensive, easy to build, and flies great. And, since they are all white, they are easy for the kids to decorate with paint, pin striping, or just good old stickers. Or, you can leave them white! They'll still fly! FYI...check out the Viking Educators Pack, EST1755, for additional pictures of the Viking rocket built with the 3, 4, or 5 fin configuration, which this kit allows you to do. Recommend only using the smaller A8-3 motors...good altitude plus the ejection charge puff of smoke is still visible at this height. The kids seemed to like seeing the streamer deploy. Any other motor, this lightweight dragster of a rocket is disappearing into the wild blue yonder. You're probably not getting it back...lol. We shot off 10 rockets today. The first 9 with the A8-3 motors in groups of 2, then 3, then 4. They fly high, are a lot of fun, AND we recovered each rocket. We didn't lose sight of any of them and for some reason, the kids love to chase those rockets as they descend. However, on the 10th and final launch, we used a C6-5 just to show the kids how the bigger motors performed. Well, you guessed it! That rocket is still orbiting up there as you read this. The only one that was lost because it just, simply...disappeared!!! You've been warned! The Viking is a screamer!!! Have fun...

Great for Children
By Robiny1997 June 2, 2013
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.
