This Estes rocket is Yankee doodle dandy! The patriotic Yankee is a super performance model with a one-of-a-kind shaped nose cone. The aerodynmaic nose cone gives this patriot the extra push it needs to fly way above the average rocket its size.
The Estes Yankee is an exciting Skill Level 1 rocket kit that knows how to rip up the skies! When flown with powerful Estes engines, this ultra trim missile screams to amazing heights over 1,800 feet! After a cloud-topping flight, the Yankee returns safely with a neon orange streamer. Within minutes after landing, it’s ready for another high altitude launch!
The Yankee stands 11 inches tall and features a one piece body tube, laser cut wood fins, conical shaped nose cone and colorful red and white, All-American looking self-stick decals. Just follow the suggested paint scheme and your Yankee will really stand out on the launch pad or on your shelf.
Be patriotic, get a Yankee and add it to your collection today!
