This kit came with two body tubes, four fins, three centering rings made of "aerofibre" material, and a large hollow plastic nose cone.
The instructions that came with this kit were *very* easy to follow.... Everything fit into place as planned, I had no problems. I used 30-minute epoxy and medium CA throughout the entire construction. I would say to deviate from the instructions and use epoxy throughout the entire process, as epoxy is muuucccchhh stronger than CA. The method of securing the parachute to the shock cord seems a little cheap to me. I would suggest a different attachment method.
The body tubes had a very shallow and narrow spiral groove that was easy to fill with Elmers Fill and Finish.

The first flight for this rocket (and my first larger than D flight) was on an Aerotech G35-7W. Nice, straight, and LOUD! The included baffle unit worked very well, and the supplied motor hook worked fine also. One suggestion, TAKE OFF THE LABEL ON THE MOTOR! I had to literally crush the used motor casing to get it out! And I wanted to save it....
My only gripe about recovery is the method of attaching the parachute to the shock cord. Seems a little shoddy. And my chute got tangled on the way down, no damage though. Just spent a while untangling the chute.....

GREAT first MPR rocket. I especially like the thick plastic fins, I hate having to seal and sand plywood and balsa fins. I also like large rockets, and this suits me just fine.
