Size/Weight Review by Danny

I love the Size to Weight ratio of this kit. It has the perfect size and balance. Beautiful kit, with even Better Performance. A good First for your Above D engine kit.

Great no nonsense flyer Review by Leo

The Estes Ascender is a simple and easy rocket to build. It also flies great.
This rocket has a special place in my fleet as I purchased three kits and converted them to a 2-stage configuration with in-flight sustainer ignition and dual deploy recovery. I really love this rocket and so do the spectators.
Here is a video of a typical 2-stage low altitude flight profile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aktA5WqrEMs

Quick Build Review by Jay

The PS 2 Ascender is an easy to build sleek design. A good intro to the big boys. Be sure to give attention to the motor mounting set up. If you plan to only use black power motors then put the block in but if you are only using composite motors don't . The problem is that I have seen people not put the block and try to use a black power motor. The motor simply flies right up through the rocket.

Awesome Flier, Some Considerations Review by Kruegon

This is a stunningly beautiful design. The payload bay is a major plus. The composite motors are great. I used a G64-10W on my second flight. It was beyond incredible and very stable. Just be careful of the nosecone. Lost mine even though it was nicely friction fitted. I'm adding a retaining pin to my replacement nosecone. I plan many flights with this one.

Awsome Review by Bryan

Just finished this build. Went together quickly and easily. Love how Estes made an easy to assemble pro series rocket. Can't wait to get it on the launch pad. Great rocket to start your pro series rocket collection.

A great first mid-power experience Review by Asa

Flies alright on the black-powder F-15s, although be sure not to use a delay greater that 6s, or it noses over. Great large payload bay, perfect for experiments! It was easy to build although as some other reviews mentioned there were some issues with the fins not quite fitting into the body slots. It is extremely durable and survived a ballistic crash landing, and was a great first foray into 29mm motors!

Fun rocket from Hobby Lobby Review by Eric

Got this one at Hobby Lobby and took it home. Not as easy to put together as my other Pro Series II rockets, but was not difficult. No painting required was a nice feature. Easy to fly and recover. My first one (own several) blew up because I put a H class motor in it and had way to short of a delay setting. My bad!

Perfect For Your First Mid-Power Kit Review by Brandon

I built mine in an evening. It flies great on the BP E and F motors. This is a great kit to introduce yourself to mid-power rocketry.

High flying rocket! Review by Shrek

This rocket is a great all around good time. Left the engine block out of the second one I built, and put a H192 into it. In a blink it was out of sight! Can't wait to do it again. I like this rocket some much I have a spare backup that I haven't even built yet!
