I really enjoyed building the Yankee. It was a simple build without a lot of parts. However because of that I would have expected the price to be more in line of the Swift 220 or other similar simple to construct Rockets. This is a very high flying rocket and I suggest flying it on A engines unless you are trying to impress your friends.

My dad came home and said he had bought a rocket. I was disappointed of the size, but, after tests, this rocket proves that size DOES NOT MATTER! I Launched this rocket off the launchpad in my park's field, and kids across the field rushed over after hearing the ship zip through the air. It was also easy to build, and seems to hold up well after crashes.

I got this rocket about at least three years ago and I still have it, plus it works great. It goes extremely high, and its a fun challenge to try and spot it. It is an awesome rocket, though i would add a small parachute so it has a soft landing because it goes super high.

this should be a rocket for amateurs looking for a rocket that goes high. I have had my rocket for over 3.5 years and it still works well. A true rocket.

Be careful flying this on a C6-7, it will go out if sight! It's very easy to build and the stickers and paint scheme make for a very patriotic display model.

this rocket was probably the highest flying rockets with the littlest power engine

This is the rocket to get altitude with stand size engines, Almost lost it on the first launch with a B engine. The second launch on a C it went out of sight. On an a composite D engine it disappeared for good, but man did it scream towards the heavens!

This is a fun rocket kit that can accept larger engines, but we have the most fun with the simple "A" sized engines. It performs well - and the streamer recovery is fun to watch. We've launched this rocket a number of times and have had perfect recoveries every time. I definitely recommend this one if you are considering it.

This rocket goes miles! At least it seemed. The rocket was easily built and shot amazingly. It just went and went and went. Im very thankful there was no wind cause it landed 100 yards away anyway. Great rocket.

Built this for my son. Don't need much more than an A in this one. Lost mine as a kid with a C. I wonder if the Big Yank is ever coming back. Maybe just glue 2 Yankees together? I don't know if that would be safe though. Either way, this is a fast, high flying, awesome rocket, everyone must add to the collection. One of my favorites .
