I'm OK with the smoky exhaust (I also like CTI Smoky Sams). But it does get GSE dirty.

And for the C12s in particular, the extra performance over an Estes C6, especially for, but not limited to, heavier models is very satisfying and certainly seems to be more than one would expect from going from 8.8 N-s (Estes C6) to 9.8 N-s (Q-Jet C12).

On the other hand, White Lightning has a reputation for being difficult to light and for that to get worse as is it ages. Is this formulation of White Lightning more resistant to this? This is why I had mixed feelings when I heard about White Lightning Q-Jets.

I know I have personally been more frustrated getting the SU D10s lit than just about any other composite I have flown.
