Rocket PicBrief:
A ready to fly kit with a basic rocket that looks cool! A great rocket for beginners.

Construction:
The kit is a starter set and comes with a Code Red rocket (already assembled except for the parachute) and a launcher & ignitor controller.

Pros: No construction, except for attaching the parachute!
Cons: nose fits on loosely, had to use tape to make tighter.

Construction Rating: 5 out of 5

Flight:
I went to the field, loaded up the rocket, put in about 2 sheets of wadding, put in an A8-3 motor, and It flew about 84 feet up in the air! Like I said, its a beginners rocket.

Altitudes:

  • A8-3 - 84 feet
  • B4-4 - 230 feet
  • B6-4 - 254 feet
  • C6-5 - 600 feet!

Recovery:
Descent is perfect, and it doesn't drift much. If you use higher powered motors, I'd use a streamer.

Flight Rating: 5 out of 5

Summary:
I like the rocket, and it has a cool red reflective finish. I highly recommend this rocket to a beginner who wants to have some fun and not worry about losing the rocket.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
