Estes Stormcaster Rocket Kit (Skill Level 1)
This is the Estes Stormcaster Rocket Kit. Go BIG on a small budget with the Estes StormCaster. Sure to stir up a storm at the flying field, this rocket is huge, high flying and great looking! When this oversized, super cool rocket leaves the launch pad everyone will be watching as it bolts to over 900 feet (274 m) when powered by Estes C11-3 or D12-5 engines. It returns safely on a large 18 inch (46 cm) preassembled parachute.
This giant, easy to build Skill Level 1 rocket stands 2 1/2 feet (76.2 cm) tall. The StormCaster has a two piece slotted body tube, laser cut balsa fins, molded nose cone and colorful self-stick decals. This thunderbolt is great for beginners who are looking for awesome, high altitude performance in a remarkably streamlined rocket!
