There was a thread in September '23, now closed, asking about the legitimacy of @Bad Boy Rocketry. He threatened to leave TRF, and seems he has...Here is hoping this thread will bring him back...maybe he will even become a sponsor.

I'd like to share my experience with Bad Boy, Jim (the owner) and his rockets.

I've purchased the 1x EAC Viper (https://www.ebay.com/itm/326077574048), 2x EAC Viper (https://www.ebay.com/itm/326004391104) and Estes Super Vega Clone (https://www.ebay.com/itm/326018083704). I've flown the 2x EAC Viper and it is now my favorite rocket to fly...flights are really cool. 1x and 2x build thread here -->https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/1x-and-2x-eac-viper-to-go-with-my-4x-build-thread.184309/

My experience:
  1. His orders are shipped on time and come quickly.
  2. The quality is top notch. There are no parts that need to be replaced, everything fits, and require normal finishing.
  3. He has always responded to my inquiries within a few hours; personally.
  4. I biffed a couple of the stickers and Jim replaced them without charging me.
  5. I created a Rocksim of the Vega so I could explore motors (Jim has flown and recommends the E9/E12s, I'd like more selection). The actual CG came in very aft, to the point it was unstable. I asked Jim about it and shared pictures and the rocksim. HE ENDED UP BUILDING A NEW ROCKSIM LAST NIGHT, JUST TO VALIDATE THE CP/CG OF HIS MODEL. In the end, I had entered a 6.75" NC, not the 8" in the kit, making my CG aft. What vender here goes and builds a rocksim to help a customer?
  6. I've only flown the Viper and it is SWEET...and my favorite at the moment...can't wait to try the Vega.
I'm sold on @Bad Boy Rocketry rockets. Check out the store, some great kits: https://www.ebay.com/str/badboyrocketry

I purchased the Upscale Yellow Jacket today (https://www.ebay.com/itm/325975464863). I didn't do a build thread on the Vega (I should have), I will do a build thread on the Yellow Jacket.

A+ Rocket Company.

WOW! Thank you so much for your review! Very humbling and appreciated! We LOVE rockets! This business is really a childhood dream come true! We want everyone that buys our kits to love them as much as we do. We are definitely still here on the forum, we are also a supporter. We don't generally post much, mainly because we don't want to cross any lines about promoting our business here. But...we do pay attention and always respond to tags or messages. Thanks so much for the kind words and appreciation! You guys ROCK!!
