My brothers and I built a ton of Estes rockets when I was a kid and launched them in the field across from our house. Could only launch one before neighborhood kids showed up. Then there would always be the danger the dam* kids would chase them and run over them with their bikes in their excitement. The best ones to watch were the big ones my brothers built. They were about 3 ft tall and 6" in diameter. Took several of the biggest engines and launched much slower than the little ones so they looked more realistic. My brothers would try to catch them as they came down so they wouldn't get wrecked if the parachute didn`t quite work. It`s a wonder they didn`t get impaled.

Some of the kits I`ve seen recently come with plastic fins already attached to a plastic ring you just glue on. What`s the challenge in that? Getting the balsa wood fins perfectly right so the rocket flies straight is 90% of the challenge. The other 10% was packing the recovery system properly. Good times!
