Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL

The little Firefighter wasn't a bad rocket, but it needed WAY more help than I'd want to provide again just to look decent. The other two I've flown, the Wildfire and XR-20, were awful. The tubes were so thin that they made rolled typing paper seem sturdy. The tube for the XR-20 burned through on the first flight. The paint and decal are all that are left to provide structural stability just above the motor mount.
Now that I look, it seems that I've never flown the Wildfire in full paint and decals. Guess I'll have to dig it out and give it a chance to fly pretty sometime this month.

I agree, I flew an Enforcer back in the day and the tube crumpled on a normal first flight. I got a new decal wrap from MRC if I recall correctly and replaced the tube with an estes tube.

I don't think I have ever seen the "Big Ben" offered anywhere. Who has one? Not because I want to buy, but because I'm curious how rare it might be!
