REC'D MOTORS: 29mm E through H

(by Nick Hills) 

Specifications: Length: 46" Diameter: 2.6" Motor Mount: 29MM 

[Rocket Pic]The instructions were VERY easy to follow on the Aspire, there are 9 pages! There are diagrams for every step too! The tools need to construct this rocket are: 5 minute epoxy, sandpaper, sanding sealer, CA, X-acto knife, ruler and a ball point pen. 

Most of the parts fit fine. The launch lug needs to be replaced, because it is VERY tight on any 1/4" launch rod. I found this out the hard way, I had to sand it out to make it fit! Also the fins are too small for the size rocket! So you will need to put 3-4 oz's of nose weight in to make it stable(they don't give you or tell you to put any nose weight in the rocket, but you need to )! 

The rocket is very sturdy! The decal they give you is VERY NICE! And the rocket looks great when painted and decal is on! 

The first flight of my Aspire was with a Aerotech F50-6 Fast White Lightning. Rocket wobbled going up ( I did not put nose weight in it, this is how I found out it needed it). Then on ejection the chute got tangled up in the shock cord ( I did not pack the chute right). Rocket was recovered with only a few chips on the paint!! Also before I flew it I put a 24" chute because the 18" chute they give you I thought was to small! 

I would give this kit 2 ½ points because the fins are too small, launch lug is not the right size and the chute they give you is to small!
