It is a good performer. I have had this rocket for years. It Flys great. The only issue I have had with it, is the shock cord. I have burned through two of them. But it is one of my oldest rockets! (Posted on 9/17/13)
Launched this rocket at a high school where they were holding summer camps for grade-schoolers. Just before we launched, the kids were released for recess. I checked with the adult in charge, and she said "Go for it!"
Big Daddy shot up over 900 feet, and the chorus of kids all stopped their playing and uttered a simultaneous "Ooooohhhhhh."
Came down with the chute about 100 feet away. Great flight, easy recovery, very durable. Used an E9-4. (Posted on 8/16/13)
This is no small rocket. When you are ready to move into larger size model rocketery get this guy. I bought it at a discount outlet and thought it would be ok, but realized once I broke it open that 90% of the pack volume is the tube. (Posted on 7/30/13)
