This was my first apogee rocket and I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed. Right out of the bag you could feel and see the higher quality of tube they use along with other nice things like kevlar shock cords and a decent parachute as far as kits go. I bought it because it has a nice futuristic vibe to me and I thought it would be fun both to build and fly. I was not disappointed the instructions were great and gluing the fins was a welcomed challenge with a wonderful reward at the end. My only complaint wound be that the graphics print was a little offset when it was printed so they weren't quite centered but they still look decent and a fun one to finish.
