Over a meter tall! Extreme has it all! Two stages! Transition! Chunky BT-60 airframe
Get up to 1900 feet as a two-stager. Flies on almost any 24mm Estes motor (Ds, Es) and might even toodle up to a reasonable height on a D12/C11 combo.
With two sets of fins, a Fin Alignment Guide is a very good idea if you are after altitude. Laser cut fins make the job easier.
There's lots of scope for kit bashing with this one. Squeeze 3 x 18mm C motors into the booster stage... and why not the 2nd stage, too? A cool decal set is provided that looks good over a basic white paint job.
For sure, for maximum bragging rights, you'll need our Altimeter Plus

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
