The Estes Yankee is an exciting Intermediate kit that knows how to rip up the skies! When flown with powerful Estes model rocket engines, this ultra trim missile screams to amazing heights of 1,700 feet! After a cloud-topping flight, the Yankee returns safely with a neon orange streamer. 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.
