Fantastic! I LOVE this kit! :)
By kenliu May 7, 2014
First off, if you've only built simple level 1 & 2 Estes kits, this isn't for you unless you're up for a challenge and have good building skills. There is a reason you get a 4' missile kit for $20...you do a lot of the building. If Estes made a similar kit requiring less building, it would probably cost 3-5 times this. Secondly, note that the instructions have you build up a point out of paper which you glue onto the nosecone, fill, sand, repeat. This is partly because this kit is so inexpensive and almost like a garage kit. I doubt the maker would find it worthwhile to invest the $ to make a special molded cone just for this model and this allows a nice variety of unique rockets to be made with common parts. If you don't like it, find it too daunting or screw it up, scrap it...you don't really need that sharp of a nosecone...the regular nosecone alone looks fine enough IMHO. In the end, I got an awesome and impressive rocket for $20 and some well-used craft time. I show my friends this and they are awestruck that I paid so little for it. Also it uses reasonably priced E & F motors so you don't break the bank on that as well (it notes D as well, but I haven't tried that and don't know if I want to risk it given the size of this rocket). Pros: Excellent value, LARGE, Unique subject, Beautiful results possible, Nice mylar chute, Swivel eye for chute, Flies on E & F motors. Cons: Balsa was soft, so using CA to harden (as per instucts) is needed and creates a lot of fumes, so make sure you have good ventilation, Tri-fold shock cord mount (come on, really?), nose weight clay provided was dried solid and required adding water and lots of kneading to reconstitute. First few pics are of my rocket build. Good luck and happy building!
