Can you only fly them
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.
