This Estes rocket is Yankee doodle dandy! The patriotic Yankee is a super performance model with a one-of-a-kind shaped nose cone. The aerodynmaic nose cone gives this patriot the extra push it needs to fly way above the average rocket its size.

Within minutes after landing, it’s ready for another high altitude launch!

The Yankee stands 11 inches tall and features a one piece body tube, laser cut wood fins, conical shaped nose cone and colorful red and white, All-American looking self-stick decals. Just follow the suggested paint scheme and your Yankee will really stand out on the launch pad or on your shelf.

    Easy build, but price should be lower…

    I really enjoyed building the Yankee. It was a simple build without a lot of parts. However because of that I would have expected the price to be more in line of the Swift 220 or other similar simple to construct Rockets. This is a very high flying rocket and I suggest flying it on A engines unless you are trying to impress your friends.

    Super Fun for beginners, great crowd pleaser!

    My dad came home and said he had bought a rocket. I was disappointed of the size, but, after tests, this rocket proves that size DOES NOT MATTER! I Launched this rocket off the launchpad in my park’s field, and kids across the field rushed over after hearing the ship zip through the air. It was also easy to build, and seems to hold up well after crashes.

    best friend

    I got this rocket about at least three years ago and I still have it, plus it works great. It goes extremely high, and its a fun challenge to try and spot it. It is an awesome rocket, though i would add a small parachute so it has a soft landing because it goes super high.

    super high fun

    this should be a rocket for amateurs looking for a rocket that goes high. I have had my rocket for over 3.5 years and it still works well. A true rocket.
