BIG is better! Well in most things - big is better. Using Estes E engines, this highly streamlined rocket can reach a cloud topping 900 feet. If you prefer to keep it suborbital, it will also fly extremely well on C11 engines or D engines! Either way, this extreme rocket is returned safely on a colorful 24 inch preassembled parachute.
