Beginner Skill
(Formerly Easy to Assemble)

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 over 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. The plastic engine mount and easy to install fins are bright red and easily attach to the pre-colored silver body tube for quick assembly in less than 30 minutes. 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!

    Very E2X

    This rocket is super easy to assemble and a great flyer on any 1/2A motor.
    perfect for small fields.

    Fast Build and quick fun!

    This kit is ideal if you want to be flying in 30 minutes or less. Straight, predictable flier that really gets altitude! I’ve flown it using 1/4A, 1/2A, and A engines (A3-4T and A10-3T). I like the 1/2A engines the most for this kit. If you are flying on grass with no chance of landing on pavement, ditch the ‘chute and put a streamer on it. The kit is very light and a streamer would reduce drift. When I have friends over to watch my flights, I always open with this kit and work my way to bigger models. The price is right, too!

    Great Little Rocket!

    This is a great little rocket. It was my first rocket that utilized the smaller rocket motors. Assembly was a breeze. Unfortunately the kite eating tree’s cousin ate this rocket on its first flight.

    Great Rocket, Great Performance

    This was one of my first rockets, so I had very little experience, but with this rocket, I found it surprisingly easy. It takes less than an hour to assemble, with only glue needed. I launched it with a 1/2A3-2T engine and it went a good hundred feet, and came back with a smooth landing. Great rocket for beginners, and good for small launch areas.
