    I recreated the Artemis I launch using the Estes SLS (Video)

    Way back before Artemis I launch attempt #1, I took some high-speed shots of my Estes SLS. Now that NASA (finally) launched the real Artemis I, I synced up the launch audio with the shots I filmed of my model rocket version. Enjoy! And of course NASA had to launch at night... whatever, I guess...

    Estes Greyhawk Upscale

    So, for some reason I have fallen in love with the idea of building an upscale version of the Estes Greyhawk (#2068). I know, I know, I am quite new to this, but... Anyways, I downloaded a trial version of RockSim and I am watching the videos, but then I started looking for a RockSim file for...

    Estes E-12-9 CATO

    Saturday morning, a beautiful Michigan morning, a good friend of mine loaded 2 Estes E-12-9 motors in to his rocket, I have witnessed fly several times with great flights. On this instance both engimes lit and at aprox. 1/2 way up the rod, the rocket experienced a rapid disassembly. The bottom...

    Estes Mercury Redstone Building Log

    Good Morning all, Yesterday it finally happened. Cut open the bag and off we went. The instructions want you to build the capsule first, but I decided to start with the bottom part of the rocket. The fins were cut out and glued together quickly, although I have to say that I've seen better...

    Is this controller going to work?

    We’re gearing up for our first rocket launch, and I wanted to test our Estes launch controller, so I got out my voltmeter. I figured I’d probably see zero volts across the clips until I had both the key in and the button down, at which point I’d see around 6-7 V and a light. That is not what...

    Estes Saturn V, Quintuple Cluster, Staged

    I imagine someone has posed this idea before, and I know this would be a mess, but maybe a fun mess. I have an extra Estes Saturn V Skylab (main body tube is a bit squished), but the Skylab vs Apollo doesn't much matter here. What I want to do, because I can (try), is modify it to be a cluster...

    Estes Supernova build

    This is a kit I bought on eBay in a lot of four Estes kits. Got a pretty good deal on them but... As you can see, the body tube got crushed a little but I had some BT-50 tube on hand so all I had to do was cut a new tube to length. First order of business is a few coats of clear on the...

    Sold Estes Apollo 11 Saturn V Model Rocket Kit 2157 (2010) -- $130 + Shipping

    I have one of these discontinued kits in really good condition from 2010. I received it as a gift and will never build it. Super sweet gift, but it is only taking up space in my shop. I can't find this available anywhere I saw old prices ranging from $70 to $200; so I'm going in the middle...

    Original fat boy

    Does anybody have the specs on the original Fat Boy that was around in the 90s? (tube size, length, nose cone, mmt, etc...) It was always my dream to have one as a kid but I don't believe they make them anymore... just micro and mini sizes. Also does anybody make a high power kit version of the...

    Multi-Roc 36 hour build

    Get an email from my friend on Tuesday afternoon saying "hey... the weekend looks good, lets go launch Saturday." Our field isn't huge, but plenty big enough for a D-motor. I start digging around my stuff. Still packed in the box after the last launch. I shoot an email back, "sounds good. I've...

    Estes Xtreme Build Thread

    I picked up two of these kits from AC Supply, and I figured I'd do a quick build thread for this new rocket so others can see what the kit is like. There's nothing too special about this kit, it's basically a Hi-Flier, but for once I'm going to (mostly) build this one stock! I'll probably...

    Estes Ghost Chaser

    Wanted to share some praise for the Estes Ghost Chaser Rocket. This is a relatively new kit from Estes, designed for first-time flyers. It features snap-together construction and quick assembly. Pictures don't really do it justice. In person, it's a very attractive rocket and larger than you...

    Found Looking for Estes 1919 Honest John Kit or Built

    Looking for the Estes 1919 Honest John rocket which was sold from 1984-1988. 18mm with parachute recovery. One of the few times that a company chose to model the M50 version of this famous missile, rather than the more popular M31 with the larger fins. Would prefer an unbuilt kit but would...
