Good Starter Rocket
By dshmel December 30, 2013
This was the first rocket I built and flew as a BAR. If you fly it on anything other than an A motor you run the risk of losing it.

Super performer!
By rbeard2 March 22, 2013
This rocket is one of the highest performing of the Estes kits. Introduced in 1978 (yes i remember it!) this is a small rocket that accepts 18mm engines up to the C6-7 in black powder and 18mm re-loadable RMS Aerotech engines like the D9. That being said, when achieving altitudes in the 1/4 mile or higher range, you need to add some red marking chalk to the top of the body tube so you can track it! It comes with a nice, bright, long streamer for recovery but it is so light that it can still drift significantly. An extra set of eyes and the above mentioned marking chalk will ensure you can fly your Wizard again and again!

A favorite from the start
By wallyum March 25, 2014
I've built and flown at least a half dozen Wizards since the first one back in 1978. I picked that one without knowing what a great performer it was going to be. We happened to have both purple and white spray paint at the house and I had it built and painted in a day. When it was done I set my launch pad up in my front yard, loaded a C6 in the Wizard and let it fly. My jaw and the jaw of every kid watching dropped and stayed dropped. I'd previously flown an Alpha on a C6 and had been impressed with the altitude that one attained, but it was nothing like the Wizard. It ejected over 1000' over the church at the top of the street, then rode the streamer back toward us. For a moment I thought I was actually going to pull off the impossible and get it back, but it dropped into a gutter on the tall side of the house at the top of the street. Before I could get the ladder up the skies opened, and my Wizard was ruined. These days I buy Wizards by the handful. I'm not crazy about the new paint and decal scheme, but I know my way around that. Thirty six years later it's still one of the best Estes designs ever. There will always be a Wizard in my fleet.
