Mini motor powered helicopter recovery rocket kit. Fun for small fields and competitions
Be ready to challenge your building skills with the Mini "A" Heli. This "competition ready helicopter recovery” model rocket kit is joining the Estes line and will challenge your building skills to get the "blades" just right for a maximum duration descent of 45-60 seconds in dead air.
The Mini "A" Heli is powered by an A10-3T 13mm model rocket motor. This rocket is just waiting to be added to your collection. Laser cut balsa fins and rotor blades make the challenge somewhat easier.
In the US, the NAR - National Association of Model Rocketry. www.nar.org organises competitions around this type of model rocket. Maybe your school or youth group could do the same!
