Nice kit and surprisingly straight forward build. Everything lined up nicely. First flight coming very soon.
I had previously purchased the 29 mm (larger) version of this kit and decided I needed a smaller size for more economic cluster flights. Materials and instructions are excellent. A very fun rocket to build and fly. The only complaint I had was the decals (which are really just some waterslide stripes have a white, not clear background. If you don't cut exacly where the black meets the white, the white will transfer to the rocket. most decals I have used are clear bordering the image to be transferred.. I have flown this once on 3X C6-7 motors. Altitude was 842 feet at 176 mph with a late delay by about 1 second. Recovery was fine. I did use a topflite 15" parachute instead of the stock plastic chute. All in all I'm very pleased with the quality of this kit.
