Blast off to the stars (or at least lower reaches of UK airspace) with TWO rockets in this Estes Set for beginners!
With the Ready To Fly (RTF) (which means pre-assembled for non-rocket scientists) Rascal/Hi Jinks Launch Set, you get double the rockets and twice the fun, all in one self-contained set. Also, these ready-to-fly rockets require no building or painting (unless you want to), so the fun starts all the sooner, too.
Both rockets are 356mm tall, but with differing fin combinations to ring the changes, these superb rockets can launch to a height of 1,200 feet using standard Estes C rocket motors and are then recovered using their 30.5cm brightly coloured parachutes, before being readied for another launch. A word to the wise: start with A or B motors to avoid long long long walks to recover while you are learning about winds aloft ;-)
The included Launch System is good to go for the vast majority of rockets sold by the Model Rocket Shop.
Recovery: 30cm parachute
Glue: not required
Launch equipment: standard (included)
Recommended motors: A8-3, B4-4, B6-4, C6-7
