"VERY easy to assemble"
robert_s_schmidt
Super easy to assemble, requiring just some glue and less than 30 minutes. Flies well, looks good in the air. I didn't care for the decals, so I left them out. It looks good without them.

"Slick looking rocket but not perfect."
zjracing (Oregon)
I boght this rocket for myself (adult) and finally shot it off today twice. I encountered some assembly issues that I did not expect and felt I should not have any issues. My biggest gripr is the end cap that holds the engine in is so loose it wants to fall off. I had to stack a series of o-rings on it to keep it on. The big bummer on launch day was the fact that they launch tube of the rocket would not slide over the launch rod. When they glued the tube on the rocket they got carried away with the glue and partially blocked the hole off. I had to chisel the glue away with improvised tools just to launch it. I love the looks of this rocket but was disappointed with the quality I received. I launched it with a B6-6 engine and do not recommend it. I was worried about the parachute carrying it to far away but with the 6 second delay the rocket peaks out, turns down, and rockets toward the ground. When the parachute popped out it ripped then streamered the rest of the way down to earth. Luckily the ground was soft and the fins stuck in the grass with the rocket nearly standing straight up. Good thing for durable plastic fins, no other damage done other tan to the parachute. In summary, I still love the looks of this rocket and plan to fix it up and shoot it off many more times as long it holds up.

"Buy this rocket"
tkotche (my backyard)
This is a fun rocket. Very quick and easy to assemble. It looks sharp and flies high as well with the C6-5 engine.
