    All things considered it went quite well although it could so easily have been a disaster. The vertical launch rail holding up the rocket slightly restricted the launch but...it did get off the ground.

  2. Ain’t going to lie, I was expecting a little more excitement out of such a big rocket. But now, I kinda want to build one. :) I use to play with model rockets 30 years ago. Wow. I’m getting old. :confused:

    Agree, was expecting waaay more. I did Estes rockets 40 years ago and had some go 1000(?) feet in the air. Some were 2 stage. Easy for me as a kid though as my dad and uncle were aeronautical engineers with the Saturn V project on their resume and most likely did most of the work on the Estes rockets.
