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!

    Quick n fun. Ditch ‘chute

    I bought this rocket for my son who is just getting into the hobby. It was easy assemble and fun to launch. The only issue I had was the ‘chute seemed too big. I ditched it and put a streamer on. Has worked flawlessly for 3 flights.
