We love this rocket!
By djstallard October 26, 2013
My son - along with five other kids in my model rocketry club - fly the LOC IV. What a workhorse. The LOC IV is easy to assemble, incredibly durable, and flies like a champ. This is our go to rocket for kids who want to get N.A.R. junior level one certified.

Great detail
By bonnie1273 March 6, 2014
The details are amazing for something so tiny. Preiser's quality is excellent.

Love these E motors
By jayorr March 3, 2014
If a C motor is good, a D is better. If a D is good, E must be the best (see my Viper review...). Fits in any D powered rocket and twice as much fun, just leave out the motor block. I fly a lot of these, and love em!

Solid kit at a fantastic price
By scott February 16, 2014
I've used these (and the X-13) kits from SureFire multiple times now as a Merit Badge Counselor for Space Exploration (and just ordered another 24!). White glue and a sharp blade (for cutting fins out of the balsa stock) are just about all you need once you print the instructions. The build instructions are easy enough for younger (age 11) kids to follow on their own or with very little supervision. During one Merit Badge Clinic, we built this and another kit in parallel in about an hour, interleaved with some instruction and discussion, and completed two flights for each Scout (16 total) in the remaining 2 hours, including all the multi-pad launch setup and tear-down. Unlike some other, more expensive ready-to-fly kits that fell apart or couldn't be flown again after their inaugural flight, these work well. The streamer option is great for windy areas or small fields. There is a parachute-based kit (SFR710187) available from HobbyLinc, but unless you know they'll be landing on tarmac or pavement repeatedly, the streamer option really is good enough for most use cases.
