The Black Brant family of sounding rockets was made in Canada in the late 50s. More than a half century later, highly reliable Black Brant rockets are still carrying scientific payloads to high altitude. Second in the series, the 28 foot long rocket first flew in 1960. It was eventually succeeded by the smaller but more powerful Black Brant III.
A stunning model, the Estes Black Brant II is a 1:13 scale replica of one of the earliest in the group. Standing nearly 25 inches tall, this impressive rocket is loaded with scale details. Finish your rocket with detailed waterslide decals and an 18 inch pre assembled parachute for gentle recoveries. Use the recommended Estes D-12 engines (not included) to reach heights of 1300 feet.
