A long-time hobbyist’s dream build, this high flying booster model rocket kit is what Estes model rocketry is all about. Based off of a Russian military spaceship, the Sasha is a scale-like model that would be a spectacular addition to any hobby rocket collection.
Durable and rugged this bad boy has two stages to lift the 6.1 ounce rocket into ‘outer space’. Powered by two D or E engines, the Sasha can soar to 2300 feet high. An 18 inch parachute will safely return the main rocket down to earth as the booster tumbles gently down to the ground. Once grounded, this 31-inch tall rocket will command respect when on display in any hobbyist’s collection.
