The Vagabond is ready to fly. Instead of using the shock cord that comes with the kit, I replaced it with elastic cord I picked up in Walmart. I have had issues with the shock cord material becoming brittle over time and breaking. Kind of like an old rubber band. The elastic cord you can get in the sewing or craft section of most department stores is a cloth material that last a lot longer. I also sniped the end of the engine clip off so the rocket can stand up. The last alteration I made was the color. I went with the blue and black as opposed to the red and white.
