Eliminator E

Model #1950

Description

The Estes Eliminator is a super high performance model rocket design intended for high altitude, cloud punching flying on our powerful E engines! The rocket features purple wrapped body tubes and a one piece molded fin set that can handle all the power an E can deliver. A bright yellow nose cone sits atop the rocket while the tribal looking self-stick decals add to its visibility…which you’re going to need as the E engine pushes this beast up to 1,400 feet.
