This rocket was made to fly, and fly high. Just add more weight for larger motors and a 54/38 Aeropak adapter and motor retainer as needed. Super-well built kit, and can easily handle the following Aerotech motors: H-219, I-175, J-270, and K-400. I have also heard that a friend of mine did an L flight in an EZI-65 many moons ago, so I think this could be done with some planning. My painted version was coated with metal flake and an automotive type clear coat. Not really intended as a tube reinforcement substitute for fiberglass, but it essentially amounted to something like the same I think. The clear coat was more like an adhesive after application. you'd probably be fine stock for J and K flights. I believe LOC doesnt recommend glassing for lower than Ls. But I believe LOC does recommend glassing for L flights. In their paraphrased words: "can it be done stock? yes. But you probably have a better chance for success if you do glass it for L flights."
Great rocket that honestly is hard to beat for the price. I was able to do both my L1 and L2 Tripoli certification flights without any modifications to the rocket (I didn't add any nose weight or use any electronics). For reference, the L1 was with an H283 and the L2 was with a J250. I highly recommend this kit for a first foray into high power rocketry!
The kit is sturdy and well made. However, the directions are poor to say the least. Apparently, LOC assumes that you are an expert high power builder and you don't really need instructions.
