Estes super-sized an already great rocket with the release of the Interceptor E. This new design retains the intergalactic cruiser look of the original, but has added many new features that make this model a new classic in the Estes line.
Estes took the basic Interceptor from years ago, bumped up the size and added several heavy duty, molded and laser cut parts to improve assembly and durability of this mega rocket. While impressive and as large as it is, this rocket is a fairly easy build, yet still retains the classic look of its smaller brother!
The kit has many assembly upgrades to make building this impressive model easier than you might think. New features include laser cut balsa fins, a highly detailed blow molded nose cone and molded plastic engine centering rings specifically designed to handle the increased power. Nicely detailed, two piece molded wing pods, molded plastic space antennae and a super detailed plastic engine exhaust outlet round out the product. After painting, you can finish this beauty off with two sheets of upsized, accurately reproduced waterslide decals. All these upgrades make for a spectacular building and flying experience!
For size and performance, this giant is over 3 feet long and flies adequately on the manufacturer recommemded E9-4 engine. Some flyers consider this engine somewhat underpowered for this model and prefer an E15-4W, F12-5J, or F24-7W. Probably an EconoJet F20-7W will work well too.
Recovery duties are handled by a rugged 24 inch preassembled nylon parachute, ensuring the safe return of your model back to Earth. No doubt about it, this upsized classic will be the talk of any launch site!
A 3/16" diameter launch rod is required for this model (sold separately).
