Not Sure. Review by Rick

I launched my Sky Twister 6 times. On two of the launches the nose cone drifted much further away and was not easy to find (possibly because it is black). I think I will stick with the conventional recovery system.

Great but opps Review by Michael

Bought this rocket and it did well until it lawn darted on me because the blades didn't come all the way out. Just has it for few months deciding whether to get another one. It is a blast with the new comer kids at our club launches.

Great rocket, might be better with streamer Review by David

Sky Twister went together very easily, and the attachment of the blades to the nose cone is clever and straightforward. Flew the rocket three times today, two B6-4s and one C6-5, and she flew straight and true each time. Unfortunately, despite careful packing, parachute only opened once, resulting in two nosedives into the ground (and damaged body tube). As others have had this problem as well, I'd recommend replacing parachute with a streamer to make recovery less risky. Otherwise, love the rocket, especially the "helicopter" nose cone recovery.

Sweet, but BEWARE! Tube is rare BT-56 Review by Cliff

This is my first rocket build. Went together super easy, looks fantastic, and the copter bit works beautifully. Unfortunately, I had some issues getting the wadding, chute, AND helicopter blades in place without it jamming up. Thought I had it, but the chute failed to deploy on the first launch and the tube did a nosedive into the grass, kinking the tube in 2 spots and ruining it. My little boy was really disappointed! No biggie, I ordered a set of replacement BT-55 tubes, but they DON'T fit the nose and booster sections. Upon further investigation, this is a BT-56 tube, which isn't sold separately. IF YOU MESS UP YOUR TUBE, YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK. I'm grafting a bit of the original tube to the top and bottom of the BT-55 in hopes that it will work out, because I really like the overall look and functionality. ESTES NOTE: Please contact our customer service department for a replacement body tube. WE offer a one year warranty and a parachute that didn't deploy would be covered under our warranty.

cool rocket for the kids Review by Nathanael

the kids LOVE this rocket. the parachute can be finicky, but if packed correctly works fine. The helicopter nose cone is plenty cool, and works just fine

hard to find Review by Ryan

This was one of my coolest rockets, but when it flew up, (I was the only person launching it) half of it went one way, and the other into the woods! It was otherwise awesome!

Good flight cool looking Review by Andrew75

Looked amazing in flight, easy build. Epic failure on recovery, chute tangled with nose cone and didn't seperate, was able to fix and fly a few more times before it was retired. A very fun rocket to fly
