    I picked this one up yesterday and I got to putting it together today. I notice that the fins seem really small compared to the overall size of the rocket. Anyone else have this kit and think the same? I dont doubt that they would be sufficient but just feels like its miss proportioned.

    Does it have a 29mm motor mount? I think I heard that it was, but they weren't certain either due to some confusing advertising.

    Good! I'm not ready for that jump to 29mm. Almost bought the Mean Machine and/or Vapor last night, but thought of the already large build stack waiting for my attention. I've got to build quicker, so I can make more rockets purchases.

    Don't let the 29mm worry you. Estes sells a 29mm to 24mm adapter. I've flown my Majestic on D12-3 a few times now using the adapter. Work pretty well.
