Hydrogen Fuel Rocket By Estes Rockets (#1876) Now you can generate the fuel of the future and launch a rocket into orbit! The revolutionary Hydrogen Fuel Rocket is a wonderful mixture of science and fun. The Estes hydrogen fuel technology uses water to generate the hydrogen fuel needed to blast a sleek rocket 200 feet into the sky. This set comes complete with a hydrogen fuel generating launch system, a four-point system check, a remote push-button ignition, propellant crystals, mixing bottle and two ready to fly rockets. Minor assembly acquired. Requires 6 D-size alkaline batteries – sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12. You’ll be outside launching your rocket in minutes. Caution statement: This product uses citric acid to assist in the generation of the hydrogen fuel. Citric acid can be found in everyday household food products. Short-term exposure to citric acid is known to irritate the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. It would be like getting lemon juice in a cut or in your eye. It would sting quite a bit. If your skin or eyes come into contact with the citric acid, simply flush with plenty of water for several minutes. If you ingest rinse your mouth with plenty of water. How does it work? By passing an electric current through a liquid solution composed of tap water and citric acid crystals the water molecule bonds are broken down into their primary elements of hydrogen and oxygen. These separated hydrogen and oxygen molecules then bubble upward into the plastic ball where an igniter produces the heat necessary to ignite the hydrogen fuel. Then like normal rockets the expanding gases thrust the rocket into the air. As the hydrogen ignites and burns it combines with the oxygen to form the by-product, water! Hydrogen is the fuel of the future, and this is a great way to show your kids one of the uses of it in a safe and controllable environment. Information. Ages: 10+ Length: Launch Platform: 20.5 in.

The E6-8 is part of the Apogee Medalist line of rocket motors. It features ultra-high-energy propellant (very similar to what is used in the Space Shuttle) and is designed for a special application: lifting lightweight rockets to extreme altitudes. This motor is the same size as an Estes “D12″ engine, but has twice the power, so it will take your rocket more than twice as high! It is a LONG burn motor, with a thrust duration of over 6 seconds. This means it will go and go and go, and you’ll wonder if it will ever stop. It also makes a unique sound as it burns, sort of like a hissing snake. You and your friends will be awed by high your rockets will go with this motor.

This motor can be used in most rocket kits as a replacement for the Estes D12-7. It is not suitable in multi-stage rockets. Includes an igniter and instructions for use. Qty per package: 1

Due to government regulations, this model rocket motor must be transported by truck (no expedited aircraft transport) and cannot be shipped outside the USA. Please allow for extra delivery time when ordering.

Always have an adult supervisor present when launching any model rocket.

This custom made Heavy Duty Model and High Power Rocketry Fin Alignment Jigs are Precision CNC Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum. These jigs can even help with thru-the wall (TTW) designs, like Aerotech and others, by assuring that the fins protrude from the slot perpendicularly, thus controlling the rotation of the Motor Mount assembly relative to the slots in the body tube.
