Default Estes Rubicon?

A rocket this size seems like a pretty good candidate for E power. Anyone hear of someone giving this a try?

Ah, you're the one who mentioned this...

Spotted one at HL today, passed on it because I thought it had far too much plastic in it. It's a good candidate for more power, probably a composite E or F. And some nose weight to compensate for the extra lead in the tail...

It is bigger than I thought it would be, though. So is the Eagle...

I wasn't expecting it to be that big either, but I also wasn't figuring the Gauchito would be pocket sized. I didn't get to work on it today, but I'm definitely going with the E motor. I can always go back to the D if anything is left.

Bill,

I assembled the Lucky Seven last night, and my worst fears have been realized. It's an all-plastic rocket, with a motor tube and short hook inside. It even requires WEIGHT in the tip of the cone!

This tiny rocket is supposed to fly on an A10-3T, but it weighs empty about as much as the Cherokee Double-D, or even the Omega. Maybe more. Estes optimistically says it will reach 200'.

Have you (or anyone else) reviewed any of these yet?

None of them are mine, but that just means they're readable.
