Very small, easy to lose, hard to see because it goes so high, but has a lot of building options.
Very cheap. Easy to construct, for the most part. All the parts were there in the package. There are 48 different fin arrangement possibilities, which I thought was very cool (I used the four fin forward-swept arrangement). The only special tool needed is a placement ring setting tool which came in the package. Fiberboard fins don't bond well with any good bonding agent, so you have to use a slow setting white glue, and the fins aren't slotted for the airframe, which was slightly bent, so it is difficult to get them set right.
It come with decals, but I thought they were kind of lame (but I think that about most decals) and I thought the paint scheme was lame too, so I hand painted it a different scheme ( mine looks cooler [aluminum painted nose cone with yellow fins and a blue airframe] and rarely do I ever use the offered paint scheme). Do not modify the fins! I hate aerodynamically imperfect fins, but fiberboard does not hold up well under sandpaper. You may want to replace the fins they provide with balsa ones of your own.

Use an A8-3. I promise it will go so high you'll loose it otherwise. You might want to replace the streamer with a small chute too. It comes down so fast that its easy to loose. It's very easy to set up, just shove a motor in the back. The motor was a slightly tight fit, so there was no real retention method. Only one square of wadding was needed. It would have flow almost perfectly, if I hadn't messed up a fin because they were very difficult to glue on and I sanded it a bit and messed it up.
The shock cord assembly was incredibly easy. The recovery system, as I mentioned before, kind of stinks, so I'd recommend replacement. It goes way too fast, especially if you use an engine bigger than an A. I'd even recommend using a 1/2A if you really want to see it.
Flight Rating: 3 out of 5
Only get this if you've got five bucks to spare and you don't get easily frustrated with bad fins, and you don't mind loosing it, because it goes out of sight very easily.
