One of the best all time! Review by Scott

One of the best rockets of all time in the Estes rocket collection! A must have for any rocketeer.

Bertha Baby! Review by george

I got back into model rocketry to keep my grandkids entertained and have to admit, I'm hooked again, I built a Big Bertha recently and launched on a C6-5 with a keychain HD camera (which we didn't have back in the day) and got some awesome video...try it! Since I built Big Berta I've just finished the Mercury Redstone and have a V2 on order. We are lucky to have a big field at a local county park very close, so we are launching rockets on a regular basis...it's fun!

One Of A Kind Review by Michael

I had Big Bertha and I really liked it. Most rockets launch fast but I liked how Big Bertha had a really realistic launch

Classic rocket Review by Andrew

I used to fly this rocket when i was a kid, just got one for my kids. Very easy build and great in the sky. Very durable rocket

Awesome Review by Andrew

flies straight. loves the C6-5. Big tube is easy to pack. love the huge chute it comes with, but I might refrain from using that on a windy day... Good predictable flights. pretty easy build and I love the look of it. If I ever lost this one I would get another to replace it. one of my favorites and a classic for a reason (its great)

A true classic. Review by Dean

I built and flew a Bertha kit when I was a kid some 40 years ago. This is a time-proven classic that still generates excitement when brought to the launch pad. I modified my current Bertha to include an E-sized motor mount and ejection baffle. It's a great flier on D12-5s, but I've never gotten up the nerve to try the E. The C11 option gives a little more kick off the pad, too. Everybody should have a Big Bertha in their fleet.

Classic - a must have Review by Gregory

I don't think any fleet could be complete with out the Bertha. Great flights in small and medium fields. Several paint schemes can be found in the old Estes catalogs to add a vintage feel if you choose.

Great but doesn't fly very high Review by Alan

I bought this one and painted it blue. It flies low, but that makes it much easier to recover unlike the wizard and also gives that rocket "takeoff" effect instead of a whoosh then it's gone. It was fun to chase after it.

flies true Review by matthew

This is a good rocket to build and fly. It flies true. I had fun this weekend and used a different brand motor in it sorry estes. It was a d10. It flew ever nice, great altitude , just need to uses a smaller recover system, took forever to come back to earth. GREAT ROCKET.
