  1. Rocket Guru

    Estes Red Flare reminds me of the Estes Maxi Alpha3, but with more bling on the body tube and almost a foot shorter. Use C/A adhesive, install an ejection baffle and an Estes Pro Series Nylon Parachute, cutting out a center spill whole, for a more speedy descent. These mods will enable a more reliable recovery on such a short rocket, without melting the chute. If not, use lots of Pro Series wadding.
