Nice little rocket to build (not flown yet). The fin can and nose were both a little loose and so were given wraps of masking tape (superglued in place). I swapped out the cheap elastic for a cloth elastic which is three times the length of the body. The model includes some nose weight in the form of some clay. Adding the recommended amount nearly doubles the weight of the rocket but perhaps it'll fly a little straighter as it'll improve the stability. The streamer seems a little on the short side but as it is a very low-weight rocket I don't think this will matter. Easy build for pupils and sturdy with the additions.
