Hello
I'm thinking of buying this kit and have a couple of questions. Considering the
size  of this rocket, how well does the 7.5 LOC tubing and plywood fins hold
up. Also what motor combinations can I use to get a good powerful flight
without sending it out if sight. I really dont want electronics right now.
Any info on this rocket is appreciated.
Thanks
Mike

As long as the chute opens, the fins and tubing hold up well. The tubing
is quite thick, and being paper, gives a little on landing instead of
cracking.
For a minimal flight, you can fly it on an I284-S, but best motors for
routine flying are J800-M and K550-M.

And don't forget the airstarts :-)

I love Blue Thunder 54's with outboard White Lightning or Fast Black H124's.  Even if
you use a pair of G40's with a J800 you get an awsome flight.... nothing like seeing
those airstarts kick in.

I don't fly any rockets larger than 10 pounds without electronics anymore.

Totally agree with airstarts.  With as much real estate in a 7.5" tube
with a 54mm main, I would add 3 38mm mounts.  Then you can use 29mm or
38mm for flexablility.  When you use air starts it is imperative to use
an altimeter.  If they do not light, you will have a much too long of a
delay.

It comes with 2 38mm outboards, unless you get the 3" mount version (no
outboards).

Does the Bruiser EXP come with side motor tubes, like the Magnum? I thought
from the catalog it only had the one mount.
