"Flies High!"
FinBurner (Brandonbacn@outlook.com)
This rocket flies HIGH on a C6-7! I recommend trading the orange streamer with reflective Mylar. With a Mylar streamer I was able to watch it all the way down (even though it landed WAY outside the park and was lost). Construction is a snap!

"Small and Delicate"
theft19
Pretty straight forward build, but the tube and fins can be difficult for large hands or for beginners. The thin fins don't have a lot of gluing surface, and required a long holding time before they would set with out sliding. Would definitely consider the fin gluing rig for this rocket. Also, the fins are not die cut - had to trace the paper pattern onto the balsa wood and cut each out on own. Not a huge deal, but I was building it with my 7 year old son who wanted to help with each step, and I wasn't quite ready to let him use the knife yet! May have gone with a different rocket if I had known this about the fins. This rocket flies HIGH as advertised - definitely stick to A or B engines unless you have a very large area to launch at, and if you use a C engine take the advice of other and replace the orange streamer with a reflective mylar streamer.

Information

The Yankee stands 11 inches (27.9 cm) tall and features a one piece body tube, laser cut balsa fins, conical shaped nose cone and colorful red and white, All-American looking self-stick decals. Just follow the suggested paint scheme and your Yankee will really stand out on the launch pad or on your shelf. Be patriotic, get a Yankee and add it to your collection today!
