Not bad but...

The following rockets have been recalled by Estes Industries:

1. X-15 RTF Flying Model Rocket Model #1890
2. X-15 RTF Flying Model Rocket Starter Set Model #1412
3. Air Powered Rocket GL-X200

Also see:

I don't know how many times Estes has released some version of the X-15 over the years but yours is most likely one of those recalled. If not, you're good to go but no decent RSO will allow a recalled rocket to fly at a NAR launch. And it's not a matter of whether or not it can be made safe, it's been recalled.

If you decide to fly it, be careful packing the chute and wear a hard hat.
