"Great flyer!"
jerome.kentz
I always love seeing one of these fly at a launch whether it is mine or somebody else's. It can fly on a variety of 24mm & 29mm motors which makes it very versatile. If you build it light per instructions with CA glue (no need for epoxy), it remains light enough to be launched as a Model Rocket here in California where we are limited to 500grams max take-off weight. Really no Cons on this one. Buy one! HobbyLinc has the best price around!

"Awesome intro to mid-power rockets"
ipostelnik
This is a fantastic kit for getting into mid-power rockets. The build is very easy even for beginners. Requires only CA to put together, the fin-lok system is great for getting perfectly aligned fins. The resulting rocket looks and flies great. The baffle system requires no recovery wading, keeps the parachute safe from ejection charge gasses. The large payload compartment is great for carrying altimeter. I've launched it on a variety of E, F, and G motors. My last flight on G40-10 motor hit over 2200 feet.

 
"Excellent Kit for My First Mid Power"
wjberger11
I chose the Arreaux for my first MP rocket. I chose it because of the sleek lines, high flier, excellent Aerotech reputation and great price. I was not disappointed. The directions were very easy to follow and the build went very quickly. In fact I found myself a little disappointed that it went so quickly. This is a perfect rocket if you want to get something in the air quickly. I was concerned about using only CA, but this thing is a tank! The only con I found was that the nosecone was very loose. If you build this stock, putting some tape or a short piece of shock cord on the nosecone will provide a little extra insurance against having it come loose at 3,000 ft. I plan on purchasing another Arreaux and modifying the build to make it my first dual deploy. This is a really fun flier.

 
"One Sweet MPR"
nrice88
I have built a number of MPR rocket kits from various manufacturers. The Arreaux is an easy build. The fins are tough, warp free plastic that use a unique lock to motor tube design. I used a small amount of 30 minute epoxy for mounting the fins. I added an Aeropack 29mm motor retainer. The elastic shock cord was replaced with a longer nylon harness as personal preference. The ejection system works as advertised, but I did use some wadding just in case as I use use a Jolly Logic chute release. First flight was an Aerotech single use F20-7. Perfect motor for this rocket. Zero rotation all the way to apogee. I have since replaced the launch lugs with mini rail buttons due to rail whip experience. Pros: Great entry to MPR from a build standpoint, easy to finish...no wood fin grain to deal with, impressive looks, great flyer, great packaging. Cons: None from a typical MPR kit perspective..... easy to remedy if you are picky.
