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 of 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!

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

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and Electron Beam 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).

    hi flier is right

    Easy to build. First flight, shot it on a windless day, rocket lifted off and flew perfectly straight. Unfortunately it went so high lost sight of it, never saw it again. Love it!

    Great mini engine flyer

    I built this a couple of months ago and put a mini engine adapter in it. I love it! The smaller engines allow me to see the total flight and works great when flying in smaller fields.

  4. noah

    flies high

    Just like the name says. This thing flies very high. Make sure you keep your eyes on it or you will loose it.

  5. Wayne

    The name says it all

    This rocket flies equally well on any A, B, or C engines. On a C6-7 and any wind at all, this rocket will go bye-bye. If you’re not careful to watch it, the Hi-Flier will vanish in thin air. (maybe THIS should be the Magician!)

    Fast Rocket

    Simple to build, hi-performance rocket. Excellent bang for the buck. Flys fast and high on inexpensive C engines. A must have for your rocket fleet.
