    one COOL rocket!

    This is an awesome rocket, it flies really great, and truly gets some altitude on E motors. the design is a great looking one, and I love this one as well as its little brother!

    Zoom ….this thing is gone in a hurry , for a big rocket it moves! Very cool flights

  4. Cap

    this thing rips

    I like this one ,looks very sleek flies super straight on those big fins. First shot I used a D and almost lost it , went way higher than expected drifted about 6 blocks away ,I got super lucky and found it on the sidewalk! Cant wait to find a bigger field to try the E power!

    Great Buy

    If you enjoyed the smaller Hi-Flier than you will definitely enjoy this upscaled version

    Supersize me!

    This is a great looking but simple rocket all built for speed and height. Had 3 launches with awesome height but malfunction on third launch lost nose cone and chute. Rocket plummeted from 1000+ Ft with little damage. Need to get repairs done and get this one back into the sunday launch line up.

    Another Great One

    Easy to build, and a great flier. First flight was with a E9-6, and it performed great.

    i agree

    your right robert, estes should upsize more of their rockets. but i would really look forward to a smaller scale saturn V kit.

    Cool looking rocket…love when Estes upsizes

    Really look forward to seeing this rocket come to market. Cool design. I think Estes should continue to upsize its products. My kids enjoy when we work on rockets of different sizes and the different versions of a smiliar rocket are in our fleet. My son just asked me when this is coming out and when others (e.g., a big Crossfire) may follow.
