There's a mystery here...
What is it about the Wild Flyer that makes it, er, a wild flyer? It's reasonably slim and light which allows it to use any motor's power efficiently for good altitude. That's not wild. Is it the colourful plastic fins and nose cone or the self-stick decals? Naw, not that either. All that's pretty standard...
Wild Flyer is a member of Estes E2X (Easy to Assemble) rocket series designed with beginners in mind but still a great choice for seasoned rocketeers needing a quick build. Or those who want another launch pad and controller? Spares are always a good idea! Maybe the mystery is how Estes spells Assemble with an X? ;-)
The Wild Flyer uses standard 18mm A/B/C engines (three are INCLUDED in this DELUXE set but extras are sold separately). Altitudes with Estes motors can be as high as 1100 feet (330m). But if you want to go really primeval wild, fit a Klima 18mm D9... but you might be back to buy another rocket because that would for sure be a WILD flight to 2000 feet or beyond. And you might need your passport to get it back from Belgium!
