Great Rocket Review by Gregory

The Solaris assembled quickly and is sturdy. The flights are excellent and with these bright colors, it was easy to locate during recovery.

Stable if slightly heavy flyer Review by Patrick

Assembly: Almost too easy to assemble. Clip the fins into place, string up the parachute and retention strap, fit a motor into the tail and screw it closed and it's ready.

Good size, feels solid...not a lightweight. Considered peeling off the decals to make it a bit cleaner and lighter, but not yet. Maybe. That said, it is a nice-looking creation; the fluted nose cone is an interesting touch.

Flight: Late afternoon, temps in the mid-70s, scattered high clouds, moderate humidity, occasional breezes. Soccer field. Per instructions on first flight, used A8-3 motors.

Set up, clipped in an igniter, back into launch position. Local dragonflies flying chase.

Three, two, one, launch.

Thought process: YES!...okay, nice, straight, good climb...hmm...yeah, this thing can definitely use some more motor.

Chute popped and uncoiled in textbook manner. Good flight.

Reloaded with another A8-3 and did it again. Identical flight profile: good launch, stable if not shatteringly fast climb, chute deployment at apogee and return to earth.

Summary: Good simple rocket that can be assembled by anyone. Not an ultra-high-performance flyer, but still reliable fun and gives the impression of durability.The A8-3s are necessary as test motors, but I'll be moving up to more powerful ones for the next flights.

Great Easy Rocket Review by Pain

I saw this at the store and decided to pick it up. GREAT rocket for the price and easy to assemble (did it in the car). Overall, great starter rocket.
