Hawks Hobbies has taken an old classic Estes kit from the 1970’s and re-released it as a huge upscale that is worthy of being in your rocketry collection. Besides being big, it uses modern-day materials and construction methods. This makes it easy-to-build, and durable as a brick house.

With its huge size fins, this rocket really flies straight. And because of the lightweight materials like the balsa nose cone and coupler, it is FAST! Don’t blink when you launch it, as it has some giddy-up and go.

There are two cool features you’re really going to love. First, it contains an ejection baffle system that is really simple to put together. The original Estes kit also had an ejection baffle too, but this one is so much easier to assemble, since it only uses four components.

The other neat feature is that the engine mount is completely removable. The mount engages the fin tabs that protrude through the tube. It is really ingenious, and you’ll probably want to get the kit just so you can copy the design and use it in your other rockets. To install the mount, simply insert the assembly and give it a quarter-turn twist.

The ability to remove the engine mount makes it easy to clean the crud out of the ejection charge baffles between flights. You can also duplicate the design and make a larger mount to fly those bigger engines. That would give you two mounts to choose from, making this a very versatile rocket.

This rocket also includes a large payload bay, which gives you the option of flying some big experiments or electronics on the flight. An altimeter would be a natural choice, but it is roomy enough for things like eggs, and other electronic gizmos.

Recommended 24mm diameter rocket engine: Aerotech E15-4 or E30-4

Requires a rocket launch pad equipped with a 1/4-inch diameter launch rod, plus finishing supplies like glue and paint.
