  1. Hbittner

    These rockets have a narrow tube which are about the same diameter as the A8-3 engines recommended for first flight. This makes it a little challenging to get the wadding and parachutes packed so as not to be TOO tight for successful ejection during flight. This happened to more than one of our cub scouts during our rocket rally. Fortunately, light rockets such as these don’t really demand a parachute for safe recovery. This kit allows for the challenge of fin alignment and gluing, so not the best kit for first-time assembly, but still an excellent kit for advanced beginners.

    Easy to assemble, except for the fins. Used these for my fifth graders. There are best for middle school and above.

  3. Kaylene Thaler kids

    Excellent kit for a group build. Just one comment, don’t use CA glue with kids, simple white or carpenter glue is fine you just have to take more time and it’s fine. Just finished building 12 of them with a group of 10-12 years old and all rockets flew perfectly well !

    Best rocket kit for the price 😁👍🏽… I payed about $28 with shipping and arrived in a few days .so I bought 2 boxes hahah you can’t beat that price .. you get (12) individual packs in one big box .. very super easy to build but you will have to cut the stickers out and paint the body your self … I just ended up doing my own thing and they came out really kool 👍🏽

    No parachute.. the parachute is a big part of the fun. The fins proved very hard to glue on and frustrated the kids( 3-4th graders). Better to get the kit with pre made plastic fins.. there is still enough for the kids to do securing the parachute and installing the engine.

    Great, science class loved them. Nearly impossible to mess up.

  7. Pen Name

    Great rockets, easy to assemble, painted up beautifully, and a very cost effective way to make a group of lovely, bored, pandemic-fatigued kids happy in a safe way.

  8. Mama of 6!

    Easy to build as a first timer. For my first go at model rockets for the Cub Scout Pack, this was the best choice by far. Easier to build than I thought. A little overwhelming at first but as you go along it gets much easier. I built 2 and by the second I was like a pro. The rocket has the potential to go very very high. It all depends on the engine size and the construction. As long as the fins are correctly mounted and the engine spacer ring is glued in properly, then this thing has the potential to go every bit of 1000 feet easily. Great first rocket to do with children and the price is worth it as compared to some other inexpensive options that are very cheap grade. Highly recommend!!!!!

    This product is for beginners and was fairly easy to assemble. My son is ten and did require my help to complete some of the assembly. The kit is complete and comes with everything needed. The directions are mainly pictures but could be easier to understand by adding some written instruction.

    There were several problems we had with these rockets. First the rockets were not easy to assemble in the hour they say they can be assembled. The instructions were hard to follow because you cut pieces out of the instructions (such as to mount your shock cord) before you use the instructions on the back of the page. This made installing the small green ring inside the rocket difficult, because the instructions and picture were missing by the time we got to that step. Although this rocket was rated as a “Level 1” assembly, this does NOT means easy. Getting the wooden fins to stay glued on was incredibly difficult for most of the youth [even the high-schoolers]. Finally, the rocket is poorly designed because it does not have a metal engine hook or any other method to keep the engine in the body tube. The body tube was just a little too large and the A8-3 engines they say to use with the rocket would fall out. We found a work around by wrapping tape around the body of the engine to make the diameter of the engine just a little larger so they would stay in the rocket, but then getting the engines out of the body was difficult (fortunately I had needle nose plier I could use to grab the engines). Overall I would say this is a poorly designed “educators kit”. When working with a larger group (in my case it was scouts) when assembling rockets I wanted something that would teach them about all the rocket parts, yet be easy to assemble with well written instructions. And most importantly, when you launch your rockets you don’t want the engine falling out!
