Estes HeliCat E2X Launch Set - ES1465
Estes HeliCat E2X Launch Set
HeliCat is a good looking rocket with a trick up its sleeve. Launched in the conventional way, the surprise comes when, at apogee, HeliCat deploys a 30.5cm parachute for the booster section, whilst the nose cone helicopters back to earth separately - incredible!
In just a few minutes you will have this rocket ready for the launch pad! All you need is glue and plastic cement. No paint is necessary which means more time for fun! Powered by Estes standard rocket motors, this quick build E2X (easy to assemble) series rocket reaches heights of over 500 feet!
Launch system includes electron beam launch controller and Porta-Pad II launch pad.
Pre-coloured parts, plastic nose cone and fins, parachute recovery
