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!

    A nice Mini engine rocket

    This was my first mini engine rocket. It was very simple to build and launch. I kinda wish Estes would put a 6″ or streamer recovery system.

  7. Ryan

    This Rocket flies like a dream! I bought one for my son and he LOVED it. We launched it and it went up on the first time, no mishaps. Kids might need some help putting together, depending on age (My son is 13, he built it just fine). Overall, one of the best rockets overall. You can’t beat Estes!
