    Right out of the box, this is an impressive kit. Everything needed to build and fly this impressive rocket is included when you open the box. I bought this to use as a bridge to building large rockets, and I eventually decided to use it for my Tripoli level 3 project. If built out of the box, it would prove to be a lightweight sport flyer, capable of handling anything from 54mm J motors up to 75mm Ls. I built mine strong, by reinforcing the airframe with fiberglass, and then strengthening the fins with fiberglass as well. I also added the LOC 5.5” avionics bay, turning this into a dual deploy rocket. Granted, I made a few modifications, but it is still a LOC kit at heart. I have built several kits from LOC over the years, and they have all been straight forward and easy builds, and the 5.5” Sandhawk is no exception!
