This was one of my son's first rockets. It had quite a checkered flight history, finishing up last summer when one of the new Estes .44 MAGNUM ejection charges caused the external motor hook to rip down the side of the rocket. It tore a hook width strip of body tube about an inch long down the side of the rocket. Needless to say, I think it's had it's last flight. I think it would be a better rocket if the hook were left off ala the Estes Wizard and the engine was just friction fitted with masking tape. Use the hook and mylar ring for another project.

Little rockets are great for 3 things - 1, wind direction testing 2, burning A's from a Blast Off Flight Pack 3, making a prelaunch donation to the rocket gods therefor exempting you from losing any rockets on the day of the launch. :D

Neat little rocket. Looks like it'll be fun.

My personal favorite "Sizzler" is the Estes Classic <a href="http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rockets/catalogs/estes83/83est6.html">Sizzler</a>.

That was my first rocket - got that in a starter set when I was around 9 or so - back in the mid 80's. Love that rocket! Still have it, and it's still flyable!
