Two stage, if you like, single stage if you prefer.
Savage is easy as pie to build. The booster takes a C11-0 or D12-0 to get you started then the second stage an 18mm A, B or C motor to suit your altitude ambitions. Or even try for Low Earth Orbit by using a Klima D9-7 in the upper stage!
Self-coloured nose and tail assemblies along with self stick decals mean that as soon as the glue is dry, you can fly! 1600 feet is possible when fully loaded with D12-0 and a C6-7. And a lot more with a pair of Klima D9s (with adapter for the first stage)!
Of course, you'd like it back to fly again ;-) The weakest link in any standard rocket kit is the recovery system. Estes standard components are built to a low price, not a high level of durability. To be sure you get your rocket back we recommend Starter Set Upgrade Kits, an economical version of our Recovery Upgrade Kits that addresses the standard recovery components' short comings and is a bit kinder on the environment, too.

Our full-on Recovery Upgrade Kits provide the highest level of durability. They are principally for rocket builders that value the time and skill they put into their birds. That's not to say that failing to get back a beloved Starter Set rocket is any less traumatic (especially if child disappointment is involved). For more information click HERE
