NEW Quinstar
Whirly flight & recovery
[EST 7241]

Just what you need on a windy day!

When a "unique recovery" rocket like this hits the market, the crowd goes wild, sez Estes' over-caffeinated marketing department. They are evidently utterly unfazed by the commercial flop of mini motor Blenders, late of this parish.

And, gushing further, they assert that the Quinstar is a crowd pleaser for sure. Quin, as in five, has precision laser cut wood pieces that assemble into one very unique and fun flying rocket. A major, undocumented feature (by Estes) is that long recovery expeditions are extremely unlikely.

Remarkably, as a result of the recent legalisation of rope-making by-product in Colorado, Estes explains that Quinstar spins going up and it spins coming down! Cool ;-)

"Even more fun is no nose cone so truly looks like a "UFO"". We are not quite sure how the lack of a nose cone equates to "fun" but whatever rocks your rocket! Maybe it's just lack of oxygen in the mile high Rockies that makes them think this way?

Estes quotes 150 feet or nigh onto 50 meters as the maximum altitude. We bet that you can do much better than that with a long burn Klima C2 or D3 should adventures in the underbrush not deter you.

As if we don't have enough to do, a 500 percent upscale made with 6mm plywood, mounting a Pro54 2 grain J motor might be interesting...
