    I haven’t flown it yet, but it’s a unique little rocket. Goes together quickly and looks good when finished.
    Great instructions, lots of pictures and hints as you would expect from Estes.
    I’m a little concerned about the clay weight added to the plastic nose cone. It will need to have some epoxy or other glue added to keep it in place. I’ve had past issues with them coming loose after a couple of flights.

    The Jetliner is a great mini engine rocket. Building it takes time (I would say it’s more of a Skill Level 2 kit). I would recommend attaching each fin separately to ensure a good finish. Painting is easy as can be- straight white. After you apply the decals, this thing looks amazing, exactly like a real plane.

    Launching it, however, was not as great.

    I used an A10-3T- exactly what Estes recommends- and here’s what happened: because of the drag created by the “main wings” the rocket arcs to the ground. The parachute ejected only about 3 feet from the ground, but saved the rocket. Maybe using an A3-4T engine will yield better results.

    This is a nice little model but if I were going to build it again I think I would buy or make a full size (A, B, C) engine mount rather than use the “A#-#T” size. It’s supposed to reach 150 feet but I’m probably getting 130 max. I’d love to see what it would do on a B6-4. Other than being a bit underpowered as designed it’s a nice little kit.
