    Just got it cant wait

    Just got this one for Christmas. Was at a launch and someone flew one of these and that’s all it took. I got one know just need to get it together and launch that sucker. I have the a green ad yellow Sky Twister and Helicat. Love Helicopter recovery. See how it does and let you all know

    Father’s Day rocket

    Built this and flew it the day I received it as a Father’s Day gift. What a fun rocket ! Even when I launch my bigger models the Flip Flyer goes up too.

    Great Demo Rocket!

    Like the Skywinder before it, the Flip Flyer makes a great demonstration rocket. And with a slight modification (in our NAR Section, several members have made slightly different mods), it can be flown as a one-piece rocket…Just like the Skywinder! Lots of fun!

    Great Unique Flyer!

    I’ve flown this rocket 5 times to date and each of the flights was great to watch. Once the wings fold out the rocket will come down spinning with a slow decent. The main body tube may point upward or downward on the decent depending of it’s orientation at apogee. The rocket is well designed and easy to assemble. You might consider added some of the decals before putting the pieces together.
    You can view the maiden flights on YouTube by searching for “Maiden Flight Estes Flip Flyer”.
    Kids will love this rocket.

    updated version

    Looks like an updated version of the old Estes Skywinder. if it works as good as the Skywinder did I am sure it will be a big seller.
