Dominate the skies with the massive E engine powered Executioner! Now this is what a rocket should look like – large and in charge! This giant is impossible to miss during flight! Standing over 36 inches in length, it’s no wonder this goliath needs D and E engines to fly!

The Executioner uses a slotted main body tube (template provided to slot the body tube yourself) for a perfect through-the-tube fin attachment and alignment of the laser cut wood fins. This style of fin assembly provides superior fin to body tube strength and exceptional stability during flight. When loaded up with one of our powerful E engines, this huge model can reach altitudes of over 600 feet. As an upgraded feature, we’ve also included our 24 mm plastic motor retainer set. A 24 inch pre-assembled parachute ensures soft landings so you can recover this behemoth for more exciting launches.

The Executioner also includes an adapter that allows you to quickly convert from E engine power to D engine power.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, fine sandpaper, carpenter’s glue, epoxy, hobby knife, masking tape, yellow 1/32 inch pin stripe tape, primer (white), paint (black, silver) and clear coat (optional). (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad with a 3/16 inch launch rod and E Launch Controller, Estes model rocket engines, starters and recovery wadding. Four 1.5V high quality AA alkaline batteries are also required for launch controller (not included).

    Great !

    This one is plain fun,,, Big and slow realistic lift offs like the Big Bertha,, but on larger motors. Get Two !

    Best kit

    Working on this kit right now. But I think this kit is one of best kits that I’ve built so far. My kids even like too.

    This is a awesome rocket. Big and bold. Flies up in the sky. Very well thought through. Like the size of it. Stands out in the field.

    What’s New is Old

    I got this kit for Christmas back in 2003 and I still fly it. I have had several engines CATOs and some hard landings but I was always able to repair it. This is a great kit to introduce you to the more advanced building techniques that you will use as you grow to the mid power and eventually high power. Hats of to Estes for bringing back what should not be considered a classic kit. I ended up eventually using the Estes 24 mm engine retention kit and a 28 inch nylon chute. I find that it flies best on Aerotech E20-4 engines. It tends to weather cock with the E9 Estes motors. The best part is that I have another kit still in the package.

    Loud and proud

    This rocket is so loud when it launches, but it flies straight and true and it is relitively simple to build.
