Big Daddy Model Rocket Kit: Skill Level 2
This Big Daddy is a real head-turner at the launch field! It’s been redesigned to handle our Estes E engines so it will fly over twice as high as it used to.
BIG is better! Well in most things – big is better. Using Estes E engines, this highly streamlined rocket can reach a cloud topping 900 feet. If you prefer to keep it suborbital, it will also fly extremely well on C11-3 engine or Estes D engines! Either way, this extreme rocket returns to earth on a colorful 24 inch pre-assembled parachute.
Standing just under 20 inches tall and having a Big Daddy waist size of 3 inches, This high powered bullet is built to handle all the power you can stuff into the motor tube.
