Nobody wants to launch with an A for 500 feet when they can get a C5-6 and send it 1200 feet for basically the same price..
..and as expected, I did not get mine back. The process was flawless from launch to chute, though. If you do it right around dusk, you can also see the wadding leave the rocket in little balls of fire.
Will definitely buy again. I wish there were deals for buying a few at a time.. maybe even packs of 5.
If you're looking for a rocket to fire off with an Estes C6-5 or a C7 engine, you should get this rocket. The rocket comes pre-assembled in a secure box. It's very well built and even tested by Estes people before shipping. It's a light rocket that is impressive to look at and even more impressive to fire off.
I have a few of these rockets as they're fun to fire off simultaneously together and they go incredibly high up. They're not exaggerating with 1100 feet, either. You can probably get even higher up on a still day with the right conditions. Several launches I actually lost sight of this thing in low cloud cover, Cumulo Nimbus, but saw the chute deploy and watched it descend. These go up so high that they often come down some distance from the launch sight and you might find yourself tracking it. It's a good idea to launch these in the wide open and free of structures. Other rockets you can get away with launching in small parks if you're smart about wind direction.
For the price and the sturdiness, you can't beat it. This is a great entry level rocket for anyone just getting going and a good addition if you like to collect some of the high fliers.
