"Aerotech are great"
cdpforever06272015
The initiator is my 3rd Aerotech kit. I previously had the HV Arcas and the Sumo . This rocket is very fast. I launched it on a G80-13T and that was the last time I seen it. I swear it went into outer space and never came back down. It was great to watch. I would definitely buy this kit again

"Great intro to mid-power rocketry"
duanenorris (Richmond, KY)
I really like this rocket. It was my first rocket flying on F and G motors. It is a great way to start for several reasons. First, it is first rate kit with great instructions and materials. You can see the difference between smaller kits and what makes a kit ready for higher power. Second, this is a heavier rocket which helps to keep things form getting way out of hand when flying on those big motors. It gives the experience of higher power without needing a much larger field to keep from losing the rocket. Of course, you still need to follow the NAR guidelines... Oh, it also allows for a large motor selection which is always a plus.

 
"Aerotech Initiator build"
jmtolliver
I've built quite a few kits in the last couple years, including the Aerotech Astrobee D. This Initiator kit has to rank in my top 5 favorite builds. Superb quality of materials, logical instructions and the kit went together flawlessly with very little in the way of sanding. In the instruction sheet it clearly says to use CA glue to build this kit and I would NOT deviate from this! Aerotech designed the kit with CA glue as the adhesive. Definitely do not use epoxy or anything else. This kit is easy enough for a novice builder to put together but yet it can be flown on a G motor. 5 stars all the way for this kit!

 
"Aerotech Initiator"

My son received this rocket for Christmas and we found it to be a straight forward, easy build. The instructions are well written, and the new motor retainer Aerotech now provides is far better than the old motor hook. Attach the retainer with JB Weld as it will hold up under heat. We used medium CA glue for everything else (per instructions). There is no need for epoxy in putting this kit together because the fin-lock system holds everything in place so well. Craig
