Can you only fly them once?
A lot people outside the hobby ask about the longevity of high powered rockets. This is going to vary from person to person. I prefer to fly low, slow flights. Altitudes between 1,200 and 3,800 feet and speeds of around 300 mph. So far, they've all come back in one piece.

The paint gets scratched and chipped, mostly on the corners of the fins, around the launch lugs and at the tops of the booster sections. In general, I've inflicted more damage knocking them over at home than they've received from flying.
