Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Xtreme EST 7306
Looking for XTREME altitude and XTREME excitement? Look no further than the extraordinary Estes XTREME! This rocket is XTREME in every way! XTREME performance! XTREME styling! XTREME coolness! And – best of all – XTREME fun! There’s no mistaking the XTREME capabilities of this extra-streamlined flier. The Estes XTREME is an easy to build, Intermediate-Level model rocket kit that delivers in every way!
From the tip of its stretched nose, to its rear engine-retainer hook, the 16-inch Estes XTREME is a striking model that even novice rocketeers can build quickly and easily. Designed around an Estes BT-20 body tube, with surface mounted, laser-cut card-stock fins, and an old-school engine-mount block, this traditionally configured three-fin model rocket achieves exceptional performance on a range of Estes engines, from 1/2 A to C. The narrow, swept fins are precision shaped for maximum stability and minimum air resistance. Cut from durable card stock, the low-profile fins require no shaping, and only minimal finishing before they’re ready to fly. Topping it off, the elongated plastic nose cone slices through the atmosphere with ease. There’s nothing holding this one back – the Estes XTREME is engineered to impress!
Made for XTREME altitudes, the Estes XTREME can reach up to 1600 feet on a single C6-5 engine. If the launch site or weather conditions dictate a more modest outing, try launching with the A8-3, B6-4, or one of the other recommended engines. Even with a lower rated engine, the Estes XTREME still packs an impressive punch. Recovery drift is kept to a minimum with the fast-return, 24-inch reflective silver streamer, which also makes tracking this one back to the ground much easier!
