Own your very own “shuttle” with the ESTES Shuttle. The rocket stands proudly at 23.2 inches and can reach 500 feet when powered with an E12-4 engine. The shuttle itself is 12.2 inches long and has an 8.9 inch wingspan. When the conditions are right, one minute shuttle glides are very possible. Pretty impressive!
