Product details

Estes No. 2 Sky Writer Rocket

• Soar up to 335 metres with the Sky Writer rocket
• Measuring 660mm with a built-in 305mm parachute to safely bring the rocket back to earth
• Rocket only – requires a launch controller, a launch pad, motors, solar starters and recovery wadding to operate
• Can be flown from any of the launch sets from Estes

What can I do with this rocket?
This rocket is designed to soar through the air and gently come back to earth with the included parachute. Requiring a launch pad and a controller, you can set up your own mission control and take off towards the skies.

What is the difference between a single stage and a two stage rocket?
A single stage rocket, such as this one, only has one motor and will therefore only have one burst of fuel per take off. A two stage rocket has two bursts of fuel, and would be able to reach a higher altitude.

What do I need to launch this rocket?
As this is a rocket on its own, you will require several items before you can take off. The Estes Launch Kits includes the launch pad and controller you will require. Everything else you need, including motors, solar starters and recovery wadding, can be found in the links below.
