Default Estes Indicator Rocket

Here is my next fast build, good deal I bought from Estes when they had their sale. Easy build, so far 3 days invested and will apply decals tomorrow. You can see the 1/16 fins came pretty warped from the package. I did nothing to fix them other than brush on Sand N Seal like I used on my Epic II. After 4 coats the grain was filled and the warps were gone.

I haven't painted mine, but I did fly it. Perfect for B6-4 Field being mini powered and all. I had the same issue with the balsa being warped, but a few days under a heavy book took care of that. Interesting thing about mine was that it included two face cards and two sets of instructions.
