Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Tazz™ 7282
A re-imagining of an Estes classic! Based on the Estes Gyroc of the 60s, the TAZZ is an awesome addition to any rocketeers collection. Launch it up to 700 feet on a C6-3 engine and watch as it spins back down to earth!
Based on the vintage Estes Gyroc of the late 60s, this new and improved version, the TAZZ, features the same whirlybird spin recovery system of the original. When launched with an Estes C6-3 engine, the TAZZ can reach heights of 700 feet. At apogee, the engine pod is pushed out, activating the ailerons (small-hinged fins) which then start the TAZZ in its spiral descent. A bright orange streamer helps track and recover the engine pod, while onlookers will watch in awe at the TAZZ’s unique and exciting spin back down to earth. Streamlined and nearly twice as long as the original, the new TAZZ is big and exciting to watch. It is sure to be a big hit at any local launch site.
