The Xarconian Cruiser takes a little more patience and time to build and to finish, but the results are well worth the extra effort. Thanks Estes for offering this challenge and the ultimate reward of owning and launching such a beautiful model. Just got back from the club launch and this model was a big hit as it started off the launch pad in a majestic liftoff and then quickly picked up speed in a graceful climb out. I went with a C6-3 and found this to be a very good match. The XC deployed its parachute at the perfect moment and landed without a scratch – a sturdy design.
