Fun rocket
By jpsalewski July 23, 2013
This is a fun rocket to fly. I used both a B 6-0 and a C 6-0. Lots of smoke and noise, flew straight up and gently fell back. The children really enjoyed it. I made 2 adjustments when building the rocket. First I used a piece of masking tape to hold the shroud together when the glue was drying. It was easier than holding it by hand and rubbing along the glue line. Second, I added glue to the upper ring so the shroud is held together by glue at 3 locations rather than two. joe

Funny Little Thing
By MCO NTC Rockets November 2, 2012
Easy assembly, but I would recommend cutting off parts of the fins that will be covered by the colored shroud to make the rocket lighter, just make sure the keep it balanced. Also, the tube for the motor has no covering for it, increasing the drag even more, so I made a nose cone out of some paper. A really cool rocket to launch due to the large amount of drag - very slow flight and low altitude, but it sounds cool and the return to the ground is neat.

My 9 year old loves this little rocket!
By jerome.kentz April 14, 2014
If you are looking for something a little different, this one is for you. Boost this little guy up on a B6-0 or C6-0. No delay because it has no parachute! It simply flips over and glides straight back to the ground. No long walks to recover this one. It has lots of drag so it goes up a bit slower with lots of smoke. The kids at our club launches really enjoy seeing it go up! My 9 year old easily built this with just a little bit of help. No painting necessary with the pre-printed design. If you want to, flip the cardboard shroud over and let your kids paint or color it with markers for that personal touch. No modifications are necessary. This kit flies extremely well build as directed.

Fan favorite, great for small parks and high wind
By teds April 20, 2014
This rocket was by far the favorite rocket when we launched with a bunch of kids. It doesn't go high or far (maybe 50 feet up with a B?). BUT if you use a engine with a short delay, it will will over at apogee, and fire a small fire ball down (the hot burst of gas that would normally push the parachute out). The kids LOVED this. At the end of the day, all the kids wanted to know where to get their own. Because this rocket doesn't go high, and there is no parachute, it tends to land near to the launch pad. Even on a windy day, you would be fine launching in a smaller park / bigger back yard.
