Assembles quickly, flies high
From the picture, Humdinger looks like a toothpick with fins. Well, it IS! Barely more than a half inch wide and almost two feet long, it's amazing to watch disappear from the launch pad in an instant. There's lots of fun in this small package ;-)
Humdinger has a pre-built fin can so there's no fiddling with fin alignment. And it's pre-painted, too, so slide the decals on and a few dabs of glue and you're ready to fly.

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.
