Brief

The rocket is cool with the heli blades, but it is too heavy.   If you want it to go higher, you need to swap out the blades for a parachute (but some may think you are removing the personality of the rocket).  

My son wanted higher so we took them out.   We put in a 12" parachute and it went 200 ft higher.
