So I gathered all the right tools and supplies, and I started putting the model rocket together. Below are a few pictures from the assembly process.
My initial thoughts: it took a few hours, but it wasn’t difficult. I expected it to be more complicated but the kit made everything very simple and straightforward. There aren’t that many parts; you can see everything in the final picture above, except for the recovery system (a small parachute and shock cord attaching it to the rocket) which is inside the body tube or airframe. The end result looks pretty cool and I’m looking forward to flying it! But I also have the Amazon rocket, which is twice as big, and my next post will cover the assembly of that.
