Default estes astro-blaster

Does anyone have, or had one of these airplanes? I am in the process of covering mine now. They dont make them anymore, but my cousin had one for something like 10 years, and didnt build it, so he gave it to me. Tell me what you think of it if you have one.

I have the Astro Blaster and I am covering it right now as well. There are some slight problems with the directions but I have managed to get through them and still get the model together. The foam wing is very fragil I have found out the hard way. Also make sure you have all the surfaces smooth before you cover. This model should be fun. Tell me what you think after launching it.

Hi Navioneer, I'm on the road now but when I get back after the weekend I'll measure the CG on mine and post it. I never launched mine with a rocket motor and am going to convert it to a pusher electric motor. Should be fun!
