How high will a High-Flier go? The answer is OUTTA SIGHT!! No one knows for sure. Or maybe you do?

The Estes Hi-Flier is an ultra high performance model rocket with tons of attitude. Be sure and keep your eye on this stream-lined missile as it climbs to amazing heights over 1,500 feet, (OK we told you) and recovers with a fluorescent orange streamer. Watch it climb and climb and climb and…well, you get the idea!

    Lives up to its name

    We built the Hi-Flier with my son and it’s one of his favorite rockets to fly. It leaps off the pad even with an A engine and always delivers great flights.

    a fun kit

    I am very glad I ordered this kit. It was just a fun rocket to assemble and reminded me of when I did assemble them as a youngster. It was easy to follow the instructions and no part of the kit gave me a challenge. The assembly was quick other then the glue drying. I haven’t painted it, but that should be an easy process and it should also be incredibly fun to fly it!
