Questions & Answers

Would it be possible for you to ?

What is the name of the proctologist you know?

Can you tell me if this rocket has two stages? So it takes two engines to tow?

As you can see, the kit is two-stage. This rocket can be flown as a single stage if you like, but it will likely not be seen again if you use two C class engines. Details about the engine are available in product descriptions.

Can a video camera be placed inside the payload compartment if the weight and dimensions are not over the limit?

A vehicle's weight is determined by the engine(s) it is powered by. To get a payload estimate based off of the size of engine you are using (with or without a booster engine), please refer to pages 70 and 71 in our 2020 Catalog. A diameter of one is considered normal. 6 inches is the length of the payload and 64 inches is the diameter of the payload. Is highly regarded in the customer service field.

How long are the fins? Are they wood or plastic?

The fins are made from balsa wood

This was the first stage of my two-stage The first stage of the rocket is quite impressive
5/5

It is essential that you follow the instructions carefully, as I flipped the inner tube for the lower stage (thrust ring to the rear) and had to poke holes into the lower stage so that it would After putting the fins on without a fin jig, it went well, but she lawn darted on the next flight. If you pop out your lower motor during the ejection charge, ensure that your motors are properly aligned and the lower motor is securely attached. To ease the separation, the coupler had to undergo a lot of sanding. In contrast, the payload tube appears to be thin and flimsy, despite the upper and lower stages being fairly thick and durable. We are still having a great time.

I am extremely disappointed
3/5

As you can see in the photo, the rocket is already assembled. My work took me a long time since later on I realized that this was a very complicated build. There are several tools that are not included in the kit, and spray paint is an additional expense. As a working parent, I need a rocket for my son quickly due to a busy schedule. On Amazon, I assumed that it was already assembled--based on the picture.

You feel like a real rocket engineer when you use it
5/5

What an amazing achievement! My third launch with this rocket came on my third day of launching rockets since I got into this hobby. Two stages of thrills are provided by this kit. It is easy to assemble and provides a two-level event. A rocket launched high into the sky as expected, performing exactly as expected. As expected, the materials are as strong as claimed and should last many launches (as long as you pack the parachute correctly and it opens after each launch). The 2-inch parachute opens into a standard 2-inch parachute. Seeing the stage setup with the first engine getting things moving, separating after it has burned - that was pretty cool In the next stage, all the details will be ironed out. If you are just getting started you can get this rocket and only match it with one rocket motor until you are ready for two. This rocket seems strong enough to launch a little camera (but I have not done so yet). My goal now is to go even bigger and use bigger motors on my rocket!.

I like this rocket because it has two stages
5/5

My favorite thing about this rocket is watching it fly. I found this one to be quite a bit more difficult to assemble because the wings need to be lined up on It is difficult to follow the instructions because the lines do not match. It's not ideal to line it up on an instructional overlay. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't bother. It would only take me a few minutes to pencil in the wings to eyeball everything from there. I find it really fun to travel in this rocket. There is something exciting about seeing both stages go off. You're the best. Putting something in the payload is next on my list.

A poor instruction manual
3/5

Lacks clear information about how to align the booster and main rocket body and what should be done about the engine mount area. You cannot easily change between booster and non-booster modes thanks to the design The design of this flight booster boosts flights.

The instructions are easy to follow
4/5

The instructions are easy to follow. The purpose of this is to allow me to use a camera as a payload. It would be possible to fit a small camera in there, but the tube is not clear enough to take quality photos. My first task after cutting the plastic tube was to open it up so the lens could see.

True to form and true to the horizon
4/5

Our inexperience with this build caused a minor difficulty, and we did not quite grasp the mechanics of the Loadstar II, from Estes, until we got to the end. It did get launched, though, and the grandkids were excited about it.

I love the build and the 2-piece design
5/5

The stage is set! Please note As a result of a fire ban in my area, I am reviewing the build and will launch later. In the mean time, I will review that aspect of the kit as soon as it has been completed. Basically, the building consists of the following Providing you have experience modeling, it is fairly easy to build this model. Those who have rocketry experience will find a few tough spots, but they shouldn't have any problems. A little bit of staging knowledge was required, as well as an understanding of engine thrust. Usually larger multi-engine aircraft have that ability. Rockets built in stages connect each stage to the main tube by means of a stage coupler. This kit did the same. Nevertheless, it was way too tight, and the second stage was unable to jettison the first stage, so it had to be taken off.
