Nice that’s it’s 1:200 and looks well with Saturn 5 and SLS. I felt it was very expensive for an RTF. But as an Estes it’s nice to have. The discount made it more attractive and that’s why I purchased it.


I'm a big shuttle fan, so I just had to get this model. I flew it for the first time yesterday evening (the Fourth of July). It was amazing! There was absolutely no wind at the time, so the model flew straight up without turning. When the ejection charge fired and deployed the parachute, the shuttle separated and began its glide. It flew very well, slowly descending in a spiral before gently touching down. The main section landed gently under its 'chute. My advice to anyone who buys this model is to make sure you properly balance the shuttle glider with the included clay. Once correctly balanced, it should fly nice and level without stalling or nose-diving. Overall, this is an excellent model rocket, and I'm looking forward to flying it again.
