Description

Intermediate Skill

The Estes 220 Swift is a super high performance, mini engine powered rocket with attitude that really knows how to rip through the sky. Great things come in small packages has never been more true than with this little devil. This mini rocket is as sleek as they come and can reach amazing launch heights when used with our economical mini engines.

The Swift measures in at an ultra tiny 4.5 inches in length but can reach amazing heights of 850 feet! It’s easy to build and finish, having just 10 parts including wood fins for precision performance, a plastic nose cone for durability and cool black and white, easy to apply self-stick decals. No worries about packing the parachute because this high performance mini rocket safely tumbles back to earth after every launch.

Talk about dynamite performance, the Swift is a blast to fly!

    zoom!

    This is a super fun rocket! Be careful, though. What everyone is saying about it is true. I used the weakest 1/2a motor I could find and it zipped off the launch pad faster than I could have imagined. It was quickly way out of sight until I saw the puff of smoke from the ejection charge. I was amazed at the altitude. Never saw it come down. My advice is to paint it bright fluorescent orange or yellow so you can spot it after it lands. That’s how I got mine back.

    Great fun¡

    Came across some 1/2A engines and decided to get this little screamer to burn them on with my 10 year old son. Was easy to build and boy did it go. Good thing we painted it bright yellow and launched it in a large grassy field early in the morning with the sun to our backs or we would have lost it; even then it was difficult to track due to its size and altitude. 4 successful launches and recoveries. Awesome.

    very cool high flying rocket

    very worth 6 dollars. i launched it in my back yard and it went so high i lost sight and landed on a house in the alley. since it has balsa fins it is pretty much a disposable rocket with no recovery system. one of the more fun rockets i had. next time i will paint it and glue it perfectly. last time i didnt have the right glue and it got furry believe it or not
