A super FUN Launch Set!
- Helicopter Nosecone Recovery
- Cool Cat Decals
Cool looking forward swept wings with pods on the ends? Sign me up.
Construction is relatively simple. It's not Alpha simple, but there's no overly complicated wing construction or intakes to add. Solidly skill 2. Finishing is simple. I didn't add the upper white portion of the wing pods until after I painted to save some work. The only taping you'll ned to do is on the canards. There are a reasonable number of decals, but they're the larger ones. I only have trouble with the very small ones, so this was nice and easy.
Flying went well for me. I had a light breeze on launch day, but that didn't seem to affect the flight. I thought this rocket might suffer from weathercocking, but that wasn't the case. I didn't get anywhere near the projected max altitude, however. 925' seems very optimistic. That's fine with me - I need a completely calm day to push 1000' at the field I use most frequently.

This was my first rocket build since I was a child. Stayed up until 3 A.M. Assembling it. Flew it yesterday for the first time using a C6-5. I lost a rocket that I had for 16 years earlier in the week so I decided the 5 would give this one a little extra time to lose some altitude before deploying the chute. Worked like a charm!!! Rocket flew true and my aim was good. Didn't have to walk far from the pad to catch the rocket in mid air on descent. I may try a C6-7 next time.

The EPM-010 was a little more challenging to build in the level 2 range, but really fun to build and very popular because of it's style and lines.Children thought it was cool and it flew great. Overal was exciting and very much worth it to build and watch.

This is a great looking rocket when completed. Nothing really hard to do when it comes to assembly, but you need some patience to get a good finish. Like everything really. The EPM is a great flyer!
