The Der Red Max is a classic Estes model rocket and another of the most requested models...and for good reason. Not only is this a uniquely decorated model, but this model performs as good as it looks. This is one of those model rockets that has a personality all its own!

Standing just a tad over 16 inches (41cm) tall, the Max is one of the rockets that is a "must have" in your rocket arsenal. From the long, ballistic-shaped nose cone to the stubby fins and the truly unique decor, this rocket has attitude! Every launch with standard engines will give you stellar flights over 700 feet (213 m). Recovery is accomplished with a colorful 18 inch (46 cm) preassembled parachute for safe landings

In addition to retaining all of the great looks and flying qualities of the original, this version now features laser cut balsa fins for improved performance and has a waterslide decal set that replicates the original - including the totally cool skull and crossbones. Pick up a classic Der Red Max today and add it to your collection. You are sure to be the envy of all your model rocket buddies...until they get theirs.

You will need construction tools, finishing materials, an Estes launch system, engines, and four AA alkaline batteries for your controller, igniters and wadding - sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12.
