No, not really. It was a nice straight-forward build. I was a bit leery of the stage coupler after my experience with the Navaho, (which that saga continues in the form of another one.) but, BTs and couplers slid right together. I also anticipated a tight fit with the payload section as I had in the past with a Payloader I, but again...no problems. I am curious to see how she flies in the initial seconds, those huge fins throw the center of gravity clear to the back of the top stage. However, once that booster is dropped, it moves way forward to just below the payload section.
No, I wanted to do my own. The kit decals seemed too small and didn't make it ...I dunno, pop. I kinda like customizing my birds. Unless it's a "classic", I usually make my own decals and make it more..I guess, personalized.
I loved the build, she went to together really nice and I love the lines.
And it's a good flyer as well. I've only flown mine so far B6-0 to A8-5, and they have been very satisfying flights. I hope to get a few more this coming weekend at the BMR launch, and possibly go to more impulse at their big site.
