Yet another swirly-finned ARTF missile. This one is black!
Not a lot to say ;-) Out of the box, fiddle around a bit to do some final assembly (glue or paint not required) and into the air, junior rocketpersons!
Estes seems to want to make these in every colour and if you have a growing fleet of ARTF missles, why not complete your set with a black one?
This one flies on just about any 18mm A, B or C motor going.
Recovery: 12 inch parachute
Recovery Upgrade: Kit B
Launch equipment: standard
Recommended motors: A6-4, A8-3, B4-4 B6-4, C6-5, C6-7
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
