Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Executioner 1951
Dominate the skies with the massive *E engine powered Executioner! Now this is what a rocket should look like - large and in charge! This giant is impossible to miss during flight! Standing over 36 inch length, it's no wonder this goliath needs D and *E engines to fly!
The Executioner has a slotted main body tube for a perfect through-the-tube fin attachment and alignment of the laser cut wood fins. This style of fin assembly provides superior fin to body tube strength and exceptional stability during flight. When loaded up with one of our powerful *E engines, this huge model can reach altitudes of over 600 feet. As an upgraded feature, we've also included our 24 mm plastic motor retainer set. A 24 inch pre assembled parachute ensures soft landings so you can recover this behemoth for more exciting launches.
The Executioner also includes an adapter that allows you to quickly convert from *E engine power to D engine power.
