4" Fiberglass Formula 98 ™
Great kit but needs a few refinements
Posted by Jeff Davenport on 23rd Jul 2020
I bought this kit as a simple 4" x 54 mm rocket with dual deployment. I'd give it 5 stars but, the booster is a tad too short for my liking. The booster really needs to be 30" not 24" that comes stock.
My other small issue with this kit and others is ; I like to pull the fins back to edge of the airframe not a 1/2 to 1" up from the end of the tube. It flies well on all the motors I've flown so far.... Large I motors and J's It has about 6 flight on it to date.
