right for those of you who rushed out and bought the latest Saturn v offering from Estes. a question, how long is your 'yellow motor spacer tube'? the board has just had a report that one kit (apparently) came with the wrong length tube.

Mine came with the proper "E" length yellow tube. Wife got it for me for christmas, actually just started the build today.

I read very recently (the past two days) that John Boren said they'd put the wrong size spacer tube in and would correct it in future boxes. If I can remember where I saw it I'll come back with a reference link.

Use an E motor since you don't have the right tube.

edit: That didn't take long at all for me to find it.
