ESTES Model #7241


An 8 inch diameter spinning rocket! Futuristic and sci-fi! Low altitude flights for assured recovery!

When a “unique recovery” rocket like this hits the market, the crowd goes wild! And this is a crowd pleaser for sure! Quin, as in five, precision laser cut wood pieces build into one very unique and fun flying rocket! It spins going up and it spins coming down! Even more fun is no nose cone so truly looks like a “UFO”.
