  • Estes - Wizard {Kit} (1292) [1978-] By James Johnson

    This guy is a good starter's rocket, as it is easy to build, fun to fly, and yet it presents more of a challenge than the "ready-to-fly" kits. The instructions were easy to follow with basic sketches to depict just about every step. I felt that no special measures needed to be taken during assembly -- just follow the instructions! Finishing: I find the best way to finish small diameter ...

  • Estes - Wizard {Kit} (1292) [1978-] By Bill Eichelberger

    Upon becoming seriously involved as a BAR in the spring of 2001, I went looking through local hobby stores, hoping to find that some of my favorite rockets from my early years were still available. The Wizard, a high flying minimum diameter rocket, turned out to be the sole remaining holdover from my original fleet. Included in the kit: 1 - 8.65" BT-20 (BT-20B) 1 - Engine block ...

  • Estes - Wizard {Kit} (1292) [1978-] By Doyle Tatum

    This is truly a great beginner's rocket. I picked it up, being a BAR, to get myself back into the rocket building world. I built mine exactly by the instructions. When preparing for flight, I find it sometimes difficult to pack the streamer so that it ejects with no problem. If I were to build another, I would tie a length of Kevlar to the engine block for use as the shock cord. This way, there ...

  • Estes - Wizard {Kit} (1292) [1978-] By Mike Salter

    Brief: The Estes Wizard is a basic 18mm rocket but it's a very fast and high flying rocket. Construction: The kit came with 8.75" of BT-20, a launch lug, engine block, shock cord, streamer, a plastic nose cone and die-cut balsa to make fins. The Estes Wizard is extremely easy to make, especially since the motor is friction fit so you just need to glue in the engine block. ...

  • Wizard (Upscale) By Bill Eichelberger

    BT-80, E-powered 3.5x upscale of the Estes Wizard, one of my favorite rockets of the 70's.  As you might imagine, this was a fairly simple build, but that didn't stop me from finding a way to make a "gotcha" of my very own.   I started the build back in 2002 after attending NARAM 43 with my brother-in-law.  Tony had brought an Estes Phoenix to NARAM, and while we ...
