This is a super fun rocket! Be careful, though. What everyone is saying about it is true. I used the weakest 1/2a motor I could find and it zipped off the launch pad faster than I could have imagined. It was quickly way out of sight until I saw the puff of smoke from the ejection charge. I was amazed at the altitude. Never saw it come down. My advice is to paint it bright fluorescent orange or yellow so you can spot it after it lands. That's how I got mine back.

Came across some 1/2A engines and decided to get this little screamer to burn them on with my 10 year old son. Was easy to build and boy did it go. Good thing we painted it bright yellow and launched it in a large grassy field early in the morning with the sun to our backs or we would have lost it; even then it was difficult to track due to its size and altitude. 4 successful launches and recoveries. Awesome.

very worth 6 dollars. i launched it in my back yard and it went so high i lost sight and landed on a house in the alley. since it has balsa fins it is pretty much a disposable rocket with no recovery system. one of the more fun rockets i had. next time i will paint it and glue it perfectly. last time i didnt have the right glue and it got furry believe it or not

Keep your eyes on this one, even with a 1/4A motor. This is a quick, fun build that's easy to paint and finish. I lost my first one after 3 flights, so I modified my next Swift for MicroMaxx motors with rear ejection, adding a small streamer. It's now completely recoverable and still flies great.

This little rocket is just fun. It's very easy to build. Really affordable. No parachute. No shock cord. No recovery wadding. It doesn't get any easier. The featherweight recovery keeps it close to the launch site. But watch for the wind pushing it away.

if you build this make your first flight with a 1/4a. You'll never see it leave the pad and you may not see it land. We lost two of them.

this are very small, but very cool rocket. i built several of them. dont blink cause you will loose sight of it. use 1/2A engines, if you use a A10-3T you will loose it. only takes 30 minutes to build and then ready to paint

This little guy is a must have for any collection. I was surprised that the fins are on a pattern and you have to trace and cut out. I didn't expect that on a level 1 rocket. Still a very easy and fun build. One of my favorite mini's! :)

It's basically a motor with a launch lug and fins on it. I once found one of these in the middle of the desert and tested it out when I got home. I lost the darn thing on the first flight. Make sure that you use a 1/4A motor for the first flight, as this will limit the altitude and increase your chances of finding it. Also make sure paint this sucker a fluorescent red, otherwise you'll just lose it. Very much worth the price.
