The Firehawk will set the skies ablaze! This mini engines powered dynamo is sure to fire your imagination as it blasts toward the clouds on its way to extreme launch heights of 550 feet. The streamlined shaped Firehawk is hard to miss on the pad or in the sky with its bright red, pre-colored plastic fins and nose cone.

This rocket is one of our Beginner level kits that can be ready to fly in about an hour. To complete the Firehawk, we’ve also included a colorful, self-stick decal set that enhances the looks of this mini missile. After a screaming, high altitude flight, the rocket returns gently on a colorful 12 inch parachute. This rocket is a terrific model rocket and is ideal for scout, club or school activities.

Don’t wait, get a bird of your own…the Firehawk from Estes!

    this is the rocket I launch when I want stuff to work right, done it three times and have never had a failed launch

    This was one of the first 5 rockets I got when I began the model rocket hobby. I always enjoyed it until one day, the parachute never ejected and the rocket came straight down. I had to cut half of the body tube, so it was half of its original size. I launched it, but never found it because it was very dark outside. Conclusion: Good starter rocket for mini engines.

    WOW, Great rocket!

    Fantastic little rocket. This little devil flies very high on a tiny engine. Be careful on windy days as the recovery can take a little bit of time and the rocket will travel with the parachute deployed. This might be a good rocket for a streamer modification… Easy to build, inexpensive and fun to fly. My son loves it and so do I.
