Hello. Me again, I have a question for everyone. What is your
opinion of the LOC Lil Nuke? I am thinking of buying one as my first
non Estes kit, and I'm really curious if this is a good rocket to start
with? Thanks in advance.
reinforce those fin fillets with glass and add T-nuts to the ass end
for motor retention

One of my favorite rockets. Make sure you sand the shiny stuff off the
body tube before you glue the fins on. You might also want to use epoxy
rivets to glue the fins on. ( drill a line of holes where the fins attach
then the epoxy gets a better grip) I commend the F20-7 econojet to you as
my favorite motor for this beast.

This kit is so tough that it has come down sans chute a few times and had
I'd recommend the LOC Graduator or THOY Hornet as a good next step kit. And
in either case, add kaplow Klips, a third centering ring, and baffle as

The Lil Nuke was my first rocket when I got back into the hobby, after 15+ year
hiatus, and has been a joy.
