"Great Rocket"
rlm1982
Great rocket, low price and fast shipping. Hopefully it lasts for many flights

 
"Great for Children"
Robiny1997
I have used this rocket in a Summer Camp setting for several years. They are easy to put together with a little adult supervision (my campers are 9-12). They fly great - we have been using a B engine. The kids love launch day and the parents are always very impressed.

 
"The perfect experimental small model rocket"
mh9162013
Given how Estes designed this kit, there are plenty of other customization possibilities besides the fins. For example, you can build the nose cone to hold a tiny altimeter like an FS Mini or Altus Metrum MicroPeak. You can also install a hybrid shock cord made up of the included elastic and Kevlar (you buy separately). One thing to be aware of: with so many fins possibilities, you'll need to be careful of fin breakage. If the rocket lands in grass and you do a good job attaching the fins, you'll probably be ok with the streamer. But if landing on hard dirt, there's a fair chance a fin might pop off or start the process of breaking off unless you install a small parachute (7-8 inches made from HDPE or Mylar should work well). Just keep in mind that with a parachute, you'll get slower descent times which might lead to a lost rocket if launching with a B, C or D (composite) engine.
