This rocket is a very nice rocket. It specializes in it's recovery system. It comes down with 2 red and yellow metallic streamers. It is a medium sized rocket that's a little below 15". Another great feature about it is the variety of engines it takes. This rocket runs on engines from 1/2A's to C's. Assembly is not very hard at all because of the slotted body tube. Painting is also easy with a can of purple spray paint. With this rocket, you will easily attract a small group of people in no time. That's why I like to start off my launching with the Fire Streak. I recommend this rocket to anyone.

External airframe is plastic. Fins: four pre-screen printed with art. Motor mount: intnerior small paper tube. Also houses the streamer and engine. Nose cone: also plastic. Snaps together like the rest ...

    This rocket from Estes is a "Simple Snap Together" kit that can be quickly assembled and flown. It is a single stage, streamer recovery rocket. There are few pieces to this rocket. There are two body tube halves, one motor tube, four fins, nose cone, shock cord, motor retainer and streamer. I purchased this rocket one Saturday morning to cure boredom. I was looking for a small, ...
