    Low-Boom SST Model Rocket Kit

    Estes Low-Boom SST Model Rocket Kit

    In an era of aerospace marvels, the Supersonic Transport (SST) stood out. By the mid-1960s multiple nations were pursuing the goal of an SST passenger jet. Imagine traveling from New York to L.A. in less than two hours – it was the verge of a revolution in air travel! But there were problems. Budget overruns and projections of enormous operating costs were limiting the passenger SST's appeal. But the real death knell to an international fleet of SSTs was the excessive sound. These super-fast jets were simply too noisy.

    The SST's thunderous sonic booms – faster-than-sound shock waves – were dangerously loud. So loud that SST activity over the continental US was banned with other nations following suit. Eventually, supersonic flights were limited to ocean routes. Most nations dropped their SST projects and a single model, jointly developed by England and France, was produced in very limited numbers. In the end, the revolution never came.

    Fast forward to today. After decades of test flights and analysis, a solution may finally be at hand: The Low-Boom SST. By adjusting critical aspects of aircraft features like nose shape, fuselage length, wing surface area, engine output, etc., the duration and power of the sonic boom can be minimized. "Low-boom" supersonic test aircraft are now being flown successfully and passenger jet designs are in the works.

    Estes is looking ahead with its own Low-Boom SST – a sleek, 30-inch long, delta-winged model rocket of the next generation of quiet, super-fast passenger jets. This Expert level kit is loaded with features including intricate, balsa-constructed, underwing engine pods and a large sheet of detailed water-slide decals to complete the scale-like look. Launch and watch as the Low-Boom SST climbs to 400 feet on a C6-3 engine and gently returns under a large 15-inch parachute. The SST revolution might be on its way after all!

    Space Corps Lunar Scout Model Rocket Kit

    Estes Space Corps Lunar Scout Model Rocket Kit

    When humanity returns to the moon, look for the Space Corps Lunar Scout to lead the way. Compact, easy to build, and constructed from laser-cut cardstock, this highly detailed rocket flies up to 200 feet on an Estes A10-0T engine and returns by featherweight recovery – ideal for small fields.

    he Lunar Scout series of remote, robotic space probes was crucial to the success of the new lunar landing program of the late 2020s. This automated craft had a single, critical directive: map the moon’s surface in exacting detail to identify prospective sites for the “Second Giant Leap” as that series of lunar landing missions eventually become known. Designed to be inexpensive to manufacture and proven reliable after more than a dozen flawless lunar landing and mapping missions, Space Corps later adapted the Lunar Scout to explore Mars and its twin moons Phobos and Deimos.

    The Estes Lunar Scout is a lightweight model of this future historic space probe that will one day play such an important role in humanity’s return to the moon. With just enough detail to make this a fun but challenging build, the Lunar Scout is right for all levels of model rocket crafters. This Intermediate-Level kit features laser-cut cardstock fins and other structural parts that come together to form an amazing flying model rocket. Intricately designed water-slide decals add an additional note of realism. The full-size Lunar Scout may not actually exist quite yet, but this model looks real enough to do the job now! Compact and lightweight, the Estes Lunar Scout is designed to fly well on smaller engines. A maximum altitude of 200 feet can be expected using the Estes A10-0T mini engine. Engine options for lower altitude flights are also available. The Lunar Scout features featherweight recovery – the rocket is engineered to fall back to Earth after powered flight and land unharmed, ready to take another engine and fly again. With relatively low altitude launches and a rapid featherweight recovery, the Lunar Scout makes for a great small field flyer. No need to wait for NASA to create their Lunar Scout – build and fly yours today.

    Planet Probe Model Rocket Kit

    Quest Aerospace Planet Probe Model Rocket Kit

    Fun to fly and easy to build, the cone-shaped Planet Probe rocket is perfect for small flying areas.

    The Planet Probe features gentle tumble recovery. No recovery wadding is required, so the Planet Probe is easy and quickly prepared for flight.

    Some tips for building the Planet Probe:

    The shroud is pre-printed on one side, but is plain white on the other. As an alternative to using the pre-printed side, you can flip the shroud over and use the white side. The white side may be decorated, before or after assembly, with paint or markers.

    Gluing the cardstock internal fins to the motor mount tube can be challenging. To make it easier, lightly sand both the root edges of each fin and the places on the motor tube where the fins will be glued. Redraw the lines on the motor tube after sanding. Sanding the surfaces gives a slightly rougher finish which allows the glue to adhere better. Apply a light bead of glue along the line on motor tube. Stick the root edge of the fin to the glue. Pull the fin away and wait a few seconds. Then stick it back in place. Hold the fin in place for a while until it is steady before trying to glue the next fin.

    An alternative way to attach the fins to the motor tube is to use a thin bead of CA ("Super") glue. Be careful when aligning the fin and pressing it into the glue because the glue will grab instantly. Let the glue dry for an hour or two then apply a fillit of white or wood glue along each fin's edge as described in the kit's instructions.

    Red Eye Model Rocket Kit

    Semroc Red Eye Model Rocket Kit

    The Red-Eye kit was originally released in 1980 by Centuri Engineering Company as the enemy satellite for their new Satellite Killer. Both of these models were a part of their “War in Space” series. Since these were done in the final days of Centuri, as a separate company from Estes Industries, there were no later entries. The Red-Eye was an “upscale” of the earlier Satellite 62SL and used the same fiber fin sheets. It was released as Catalog Number 5346 and had an introductory price of $2.00.

    The Semroc Retro-Repro Red-Eye is updated with laser-cut fins. The original plastic nose cone is replaced with balsa. The engine mount is added to work with a wide range of mini-engines instead of a standard 1/2A6 engine.

    Satellite Killer Model Rocket Kit

Inspired by the cold war "Star Wars" proposal, these models were a part of Centuri's "War in Space" series. Since these were done in the final days of Centuri as a separate company from Estes Industries, there were no later entries.

    The Semroc Retro-Repro Satellite Killer kit is updated with laser-cut fiber fins. The original foil decals are changed to waterslide for ease of use and durability. A Kevlar cord is added for a more reliable shock mount. Most of the rest of the model is faithful to the original design.
