Flight:
On the first flight, I used a C6-5 and it flew great! Perfect take off and descent. It flew straight up and didn't drift much.

The second time I used a C6-7, It went pretty straight, but it caught some wind and drifted, luckily it missed the busy highway by 10 feet!

Finally, on the third flight, I used another C6-7, once again it went up okay, but when the ejection charge blew, I discovered that the parachute was tangled and it went down hard on the parking lot! *Ouch* I ran across the field to it, and luckily, none of the fins were broken, but the parachute was a little burnt. Over all it did perform better than I had expected it to.

Recovery:
The recovery is pretty good it but it comes down kind of fast. Just pray it doesn't hit anything harder than a dirt road!

Flight Rating: 4 out of 5

Summary:
Pros- Easy to fly Sturdy/Rugged. Well flying rocket. Good for smaller fields because of fast descent .

Cons- Loose Fitting Nose Cone.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
