    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...

    Wanted 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...

    Estes - Doorknob PSII (#9720) Gallery

    Just finished this Estes Doorknob. This was my first experience with Tamiya masking tape. It definitely lives up to the hype! It was a fun build and I can't wait to launch it. (It sucks that all Estes 29mm engines are on back order. I'll have to buy a casing,)

    Estes Pro Series II Doorknob Build

    Hi everyone, I’m a recent BAR, and I’ve been expanding my new fleet over the last few months. So far, I’ve only launched small low power rockets in local parks, but I’m slowly moving my way up the chain of engine sizes with the hope of making it to a club launch sometime in the near future to...

    Best Way to Remove Waterslide Decals

    Found this Estes Citation Patriot at a flea market. In good shape--needing only a chute, new shock cord, and paint. Never had to remove waterslide decals before, but it seems warranted in this case. What's the best way to remove these decals without damaging the body tube? Thought I'd remove...

    Estes (Astron) Cherokee-D: Through the years 1970-1983

    I've been doing some research on this, one of my favorite rockets, for quite a while. And I've compiled the information from the catalogs in which it appeared (1970-1983). Also included is some info from the instructions I've sourced. The Astron Cherokee-D was introduced in 1970, the year...

    Anybody Have Altitudes for Estes Alpha?

    Hey there everyone, I'm looking for an altitude chart of how high the estes alpha will fly (assuming no wind) On different estes motors.

    Estes gives you the chance to bring one rocket back. What would it be?

    The owner of Estes gives you the chance to bring one model rocket back into production. It has to be a previous release of an Estes model rocket but can be an upscale or downscale of the original design. What would you choose? If it sells really well, you will be given a choice to bring back...

    How Reliable are Estes Igniters?

    Hi everyone! So I have a bag full of estes ignitors and plugs that have not been used. I have read a ton of stories of them being crappy, and when I tried myself by hooking the leads to a controller, seemed very weak. Videos I've seen seem to show the Estes Igniters take a bit of time till it...

    Protostar upscale

    So, I am going to attempt a 4 inch version of an Estes protostar. I absolutely love the lines of this rocket, and want to build a steampunk upscale. However, I am in need of a 1:1 scan of the fin profile. If anyone could help me out, I’d appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
