Reviews Con's Spec'd weight is wrong, parachute too small, not true 29mm, can't use motor retention No motor retention....normal for HPR No decals, descent rate may be too fast.
Comparison Purpose Pro's Lowest price. Easiest to build. Stubbiest rocket of the group. Best decals and best instructions. Best recovery system.
Comparison Purpose Con's Now Out of Production None Heaviest and just barely considered stubby. Most expensive.
