  1. Rocket Guru

    Great Hi-Flier XL, Estes, from the original Estes Hi-Flier. How about a 29mm motor mount, for a BT-60 up powered and slotted tube for through tube fins, because a 29mm, or 38mm tube will fit. I would put a 38mm motor mount in the BT-60, minimal diameter, with TTF and use motor adapters, for lower impulse motors. Definitely use a launch rail, too much whip in a launch rod, for high impulse 38mm motors. A 3 X 18mm cluster is possible, if your into clustering, using BP motors 3 x C6-5,7 for lower altitudes, or composite motors for really pushing the limit. How about bringing back the Mars Lander, upgraded, Estes? I have 2, but they have both seen better days.

    More XLs please?

    Haven’t had a chance to launch my Hi-Flier XL yet but it was a fun build and looks great. More XLs please!? A Crossfire ISX XL or Generic XL would be pretty nifty.

    i love the look of the fins and it flew so high it went out of sight for ten seconds!
