Spotlight Review

 
"Super performer!"
rbeard2 (Dayton, OH)
This rocket is one of the highest performing of the Estes kits. Introduced in 1978 (yes i remember it!) this is a small rocket that accepts 18mm engines up to the C6-7 in black powder and 18mm re-loadable RMS Aerotech engines like the D9. That being said, when achieving altitudes in the 1/4 mile or higher range, you need to add some red marking chalk to the top of the body tube so you can track it! It comes with a nice, bright, long streamer for recovery but it is so light that it can still drift significantly. An extra set of eyes and the above mentioned marking chalk will ensure you can fly your Wizard again and again!

"Good Starter Rocket"
dshmel (Springfield, MO)
This was the first rocket I built and flew as a BAR. If you fly it on anything other than an A motor you run the risk of losing it.

 
"Great Starter"
scottlowery3658
The Wizard is a great starter rocket. I first assembled this rocket some 25 years ago in elementary school during technology class. This brought back memories that were great. Can not go wrong with this rocket. Simple but very fun to put together.

 
"An Excellent Level 2 Rocket"
mh9162013
This is the perfect rocket to introduce basic model rocketry techniques (a level 1 rocket might be a rocket with a plastic fin can with little to no painting needed). From properly attaching fins to the main body tube to papering fins to painting, this is a great rocket kit. Also, being a BT-20 size rocket, you can put a C or composite D engine in it if you want to fly it so high you can't see it. Or, you can put in a 1/2A (13mm with adapter or 18mm) engine and keep it low to fly it at a ballfield at your local park.
