Estes changed this fromARF - Almost Ready to Fly to Skill Level 2. We are clueless!
Red, white and blue and almost ready to fly! If you have 15 minutes, you have time to get the Spirit ready for the launch pad. Reaching altitudes of 700 feet. And if you put a Klima D9-7 o you might get twice as high! In that case, better go for a Recovery Upgrade Kit with Competition (Mylar) streamer unless you like long walks ;-)
Recovery:12 inch parachute
Recovery Upgrade: Kit B
Launch equipment: standard
Recommended motors: A6-4, B6-2, B6-4, C6-3, C6-5, D9-7
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
