"Great Starter"
scottlowery3658
The Wizard is a great starter rocket. I first assembled this rocket some 25 years ago in elementary school during technology class. This brought back memories that were great. Can not go wrong with this rocket. Simple but very fun to put together.

"Good Starter Rocket"
dshmel (Bentonville, AR)
This was the first rocket I built and flew as a BAR. If you fly it on anything other than an A motor you run the risk of losing it.

"An Estes classic"
ddeanb1962
I've built and flown 2 Estes Wizards - the first in the current blue color scheme with the supplied stickers, and the second in the classic purple and white with custom decals. This rocket is a great flier! I pick an A8-3 or A6-4 for most flights, but my favorite motor for the Wizard is the B4-4 on calm days. I've never gotten up the nerve to try a C motor. Building the Wizard is a straight-forward affair with no surprises. Overall, a classic kit that performs great.

"Super performer!"
rbeard2 (Dayton, OH)
This rocket is one of the highest performing of the Estes kits. Introduced in 1978 (yes i remember it!) this is a small rocket that accepts 18mm engines up to the C6-7 in black powder and 18mm re-loadable RMS Aerotech engines like the D9. That being said, when achieving altitudes in the 1/4 mile or higher range, you need to add some red marking chalk to the top of the body tube so you can track it! It comes with a nice, bright, long streamer for recovery but it is so light that it can still drift significantly. An extra set of eyes and the above mentioned marking chalk will ensure you can fly your Wizard again and again!
