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!

    awesomest rocket under $10. flies great, goes high, and their is no work involved.

  7. Alex

    small but powerful

    We put an A10-3T engine in this little guy and almost lost it! She went straight up and in a puff the engine came out and no one saw it come down. Hard to find without a parachute but way more fun to launch.

  8. Stefan

    Big power in small package

    Lost mine on the first flight but defiantly worth it all. Looks awesome on the pad then 1 second later it’s gone in a puff of smoke. Make sure when launching that someone keeps an eye on it or you will most likely never find it

  9. Mac


    Don’t let size fool you, this small thing soars.
