"Cheap and easy to build"

Fun and easy build. Love this rocket and it's a fair price for a Pro Level Rocket. I'm sending it to the stars.

"Beautiful flyer"
kuririn111111111
This is a great choice of rocket for those who want to step up to the bigger (29mm) engines. Launched once and it flew arrow straight on an E12-4 with a 24 to 29 mm adapter. Recovered with no damage. I made a couple of small modifications to the build: 1. Replaced the paper shock cord mount with a Kevlar cord tied to the motor mount. 2. Added a thrust ring. None included with the kit, instructions say to tape a small strip at the end of the motor but a thrust ring is more convenient to me. Of course, if you use a motor with a lip on the back then you don't need it. Uses the screw on plastic motor retainer system, which I love. Overall, it's beautiful, economical, and a great value. Will upload a picture soon.

 
"Great Mid-power Starter Kit"

Very versatile rocket that you can do a lot with for a very good price.

 
"Estes Star Orbiter Cost Affordable High Power Rocketry+Mods"

I like this kit, don't like the paint scheme, too dark. Alternate fins black and mirrored aluminum and it will be easier to visually locate Flights are straight up, with very little oscillation. Now the mods, upgrade shock cord to braided nylon, or Kevlar, install an ejection baffle, plywood centering rings, epoxy for assembly and if your bold, up power to 38mm, after all it's I.D. is 41mm. From the inside, reinforce the plastic nose cone and body tubes with epoxy. I am designing a modified Star Orbiter for an upscaled and up powered Comanche 3 using 3x29mm BP E,or F motors, swapping out the plastic motor retainer, for 3 aluminum motor retainers and it should see over a mile in altitude.
