I did a couple of group builds in a homeschool support setting with Boingos. The tiny parts are challenging, even for Jr. High aged kids.

Butówe could fly them on the playfield at the middle school where the class met, rather than having to go elsewhere as when I used BMS School Rockets for another year's class. I have at least one box of them on hand still....and I did make one into a two-stager to try the -NE motors. As I recall it actually worked just fine.

I need to fly some MMX again.
