The aerodynamic nose cone and powerful Estes engines give this patriot the extra push it needs to fly 1,850 feet into the atmosphere returning safely with a neon orange streamer. Rocketeers aged 10 and up can enjoy high-altitude thrills, with adult supervision for children under 12.

Blast Off to Learning Fun
In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. Some painting, gluing and sanding are required for the Yankee. Quality Estes body tubes, laser cut wood fins, molded plastic nose cone and self-stick decals make for an afternoon of building enjoyment with this Skill Level 1 kit.
The Yankee requires an Estes Launch System and Estes engines for the launch (not included). ½ A6-2, A8-3, A8-5, B4-4, B6-4, C6-5 or C6-7 engines suggested for all missions.
