Spotlight Review

"Impressive kit!"
The Astrobee D is such a great looking rocket when it's all finished. I really enjoyed building this beast but it was a bit more involved than the Initiator kit. The placement instructions for the decals, etc. were a bit unclear to me. I probably should have looked at some other builds to make sure I was putting things in the correct spots but all in all I was really happy with the finished product. And much like the Initiator, this rocket is designed to be constructed with CA glue. Having talked with one of the designers, I would NOT use epoxy or anything besides the recommended CA glue to assemble this kit. I have not launched this rocket yet but hope to soon! Got a couple G motors primed and waiting!

"Top of the line."
sumthin00 (Stevens Point WI 54481)
Very nice kit. carefully watch placement of the antennas and the silver decorative rail guide ( Launch configuration) and also the decals, as the instructions are not very clear on that. I use springs from the local ace hardware, as antennas. No fear of them breaking and it looks awesome on the pad .

This is by far the most beautiful rocket in the Aerotech line up! The one thing that I completely regret is not following the instructions when they call for you to paint the various parts of the rocket along with the different sections of the upper and lower body tubes. I got impatient and assembled the entire rocket and I've been beating myself up about it ever since. It's very difficult to mask of where need be after the rocket is completed. I just got impatient I guess and I didn't want anybody else to follow suit. This kit gives you a lot more in depth instructions than other Aerotech kits in that it includes the scale drawings with exact measurements on the included parts and decals. Other than my painting errors, this kits is very easy to assemble otherwise. This rocket has a decent sized payload bay that I plan on mounting a camera in. I found a certain keychain had video camera that can be taken apart and repurposed for a pretty exciting view of the sky on it's way up. Or put whatever else you want to inside there. It gives you a paint scheme that obviously looks great but I chose to go with my own choice of colors. I used a satin almond on the fins and nose cone that I thought went better with colors they picked. I of course used epoxy on the fins and motor mount assembly because I planned on flying the highest impulse motors I could in this bird and CA just isn't gunna cut it by itself. It's good for initial gluing but it's safer on these bigger kits to use at least a 15 minute epoxy on over top of the support structure. I have no doubt in my mind that you will not be disappointed by the quality of parts and the fruits of your labor when you get this bird out in the flying field. It's a head turner in every possible way. Good luck and fly safe!

"Fun build!"
Another great kit from Aerotech. The Astrobee D is a little more of a challenge compared to the other Aerotech kits. I only say that because you have to cut a few pieces of plastic trim yourself, but It just adds to the fun of the build. Absolutely worth adding to your collection!
