Estes Citation Patriot Rocket Model Kit Skill Level 1

The Citation Patriot is a model rocket created and marketed in the '70s. Since then it has been one of the most loved, especially in the USA because of its decidedly patriotic appearance!

The main feature of this model is its size, comparable to those of the Big Bertha, which give great satisfaction both on the ground and in flight. This rocket kit requires assembly in the traditional way, i.e. you must glue the stabilisers (in balsa) to the rocket body, and all the parts must be assembled.

The Citation Patriot flies with standard 18mm engines, type B and C, so cheap and easy to use. And given its size is a perfect model for the Klima D9 engines, with which it will climb much higher.

To launch this rocket you need a launch pad with a 3mm launch rod like the Estes Porta Pad II or the Klima Launch Pad. To start the engine a standard launch command is required, such as the Estes Electron Beam or the Klima Launch Controller. Motors, starters, launch pad and launch controller, batteries, glue and paints are not included.
