Spotlight Review

 
"Aerotech Kits are Very Good"
cthomason (Kerrville, Texas)
I have just finished my Arcas build as well as three other Aerotech kits. They all assemble basically the same way with a fantastic through the wall fin attachment method that is difficult to mess up. If you have ever found yourself frustrated trying to get fins straight and stuck on your rockets then these kits are for you. This kit is quite big but still goes together in the same amount of steps as a smaller kit. With a heavy paper body tube and robust plastic fins this kit feels like it will last many flights. This kit is designed to work with the Aerotech 40-120 case so think about picking up the reload kits to keep your cost down per flight.

"A+ Rocket"
drmower (Germantown, TN)
Great first mid-power rocket. I have flown mine six times with six different motors and each one was perfect. After these flights I am pretty much done with black-powdered rockets. I think Aerotech makes a very well designed and durable product. I have purchased three different models from them. But, be sure you understand the build process before you start applying glue to the tight fitting parts. The instructions are okay, but I might be a little critical about detailed instructions (my first engineering job was writing manufacturing instructions for the Space Shuttle's SRBs).

 
"Excellent Kit"

The HV Arcas is a very nice mid-power kit. The build is pretty simple and can be completed using just medium CA glue. Take your time cutting the fin can. The instructions suggest a hobby knife, but I found that to be the wrong tool. After drawing the lines on the can, draw them on the inside as well, then cut through the inside with a sharp kitchen knife. That's the only part of the build where I deviated from the instructions. At a height of 56this is a substantial rocket. For paint I used a couple of coats of Dupli-Color 2 in 1 hi-build gray primer, followed by 2 coats of Dupli-Color White Sandable Primer. (this combination helped fill the spiral grooves on the body tube. For color, I used Bupli-Color Red Metal Specks paint, along with Testors White Lightning lacquer. It turned out very well. All of these paints and primers are lacquer based. Hobbylinc has the Testors, and the Dupli-Color primers and paints are found at auto parts stores. (Napa, O'Reilly's etc). Craig
