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 aerodynamic nose cone gives this patriot the extra push it needs to fly way above the average rocket its size.

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.

    What’s more patriotic than this rocket’s red glare? Skill level 1 rockets are my favorite because I can paint them however I want, have to do a little work, yet they’re not overly difficult. I built this one in less than a day.

  5. Fredrick

    Great value

    The fun and experience I have gotten out of this far exceeds the cost. What a great and easy build for my kids and I. Plus the launches are amazing. It goes very high so make sure there is no wind and you have a clear day. Truly a classic, highly recommend.
