No painting or gluing is necessary as the rocket is molded in a bright purple color and also features colorful, easy to apply self-stick decals!

    I bought this after being out of the hobby for at least 10 years. Construction was a snap (pun intended!) and even an underpowered low-altitude flight on a 1/4A3-3T was absolutely beautiful. Use the launch rod to roll the streamer nice and tight, and a pencil to pack everything in.

    If you’re like me (low on equipment and you just wanted to scratch that itch without a ton of fuss), the Firestreak is perfect.

    Nice Rocket

    This is a great, sturdy little rocket I bought for my daughters. They enjoyed launching it, though the tight fit for the wadding, shock cord, and streamer made it a little trying for their patience. The nose cone halves did separate at some point during flight, but its repairable.

    Good Time

    I take this rocket when I launch with my friends. Easy to recover and launch again. It’s a great take anywhere rocket. Keep up the good work estes!

    My sister loved this rocket.

    Though this was my sister’s rocket and not ours she really enjoyed both building and launching the rocket. She liked that it was a quick, easy build.
