Despite my original kit getting sten by porch pirates, Tim and Jackie were super cool about the situation and when I get my kit it was super fun to build! And with a 38mm i had quite a few options. Flew it for my Jr. L1 attempt in May and flew perfectly with a successful recovery! Very pleased with this product!
This was my first first fiberglass/high power build and it went surprisingly well. The video helped a lot. The centering rings were a bit of a loose fit, but I made it work. Everything that you could possibly want, with the exception of a chute protector was included in the kit. Although I have a background in radio-controlled planes and am familiar with 5-minute epoxy, I took the suggestion in the video to use the 15 minute and I think that is the way to go.
Additionally, Tim responded to my dumb questions in a matter of minutes, and I think that says a lot about this company. Highly recommended.
This was my first build of a fiberglass rocket kit, previously it’s been all cardboard or Quantum tube airframes. I must say Wildman makes excellent t kits, top notch quality. All the parts fit nicely. I also upgraded the nosecone which in my opinion is a great investment. The Journey is the perfect sport kit for L1/Sport flying. It was between the Journet and 3” Punisher, the Journey won! Our flying field has a 4500 limit, so the Punisher would really be too much rocket for now. The Journey is excellent!!!
I built my journey 75 in one week (w/o paint). I launched it the next day on an Aerotech H100 White Lightning motor. It went up 1575 feet and landed about 35 feet from the pad it took off from. Perfect as it gets.
This was supposed to be a “Basic” rocket, but I’m here to tell you this thing is stable and solid. I really like the design, and could not be happier with the quality of components that Wildman uses to create these kits. I went with the upgraded fiberglass nose one. Quality! I started with this kit, and have bought several more kits from Wildman.
