A “true” Estes Classic has returned! The Citation Patriot can still be launched on B and C engines and will still go about 600 feet! High quality waterslide decals, laser cut balsa fins, laser cut card stock centering rings and a pre-assembled 18 inch parachute only add to the beauty of this kit now! A simple skill level 1 builder kit is great for the beginner or the hobbyist and everyone in between!

  1. Rocket Guru

    The Estes Citation Patriot is a great model to up power to 24mm E BP, or F composite 3 Grain reloadable motors. Slot the tube and redraw the fins, with through tube extensions, to the BT-50 motor tube, using epoxy only, plywood centering rings, for a BT-50 motor tube and use an Estes 9751 24mm Motor Retainer. Upgrade the recovery system, with an ejection baffle, nylon shock cord attached to the plywood centering ring, nylon parachute and 2 feet of Pro Series Shock Cord. To launch, use 2x 3/16inch launch lugs and rebalance the model rocket for a stable C/G, by adding the appropriate weight in the nose cone. D,E and F motors will put the Citation Patriot at least 1,000 feet, so cut a small spill hole in your parachute, for a more rapid descent and you should recover unscathed. Instead of 600 feet you will have sleeper ready to impress.
