I bought this kit because it is specifically designed to leave the launch pad slowly along with a twist on its way up. I have yet to launch it but the build was a lot of fun the plywood fins were nice and you can see the amount of work that went into the design of this rocket. Pretty straight forward build and it finished real nicely. Again my only complaint would be the graphics. They are difficult to make stick and the big wrap on this kit did not want to lay flat for me no matter what I tried. Maybe it is me that is the problem who knows but I don't have difficulty with any other type of graphic material.
