This updated version of a classic kit features ultra-realistic styling and dual recovery with a parachute and glider. Initially, the original Estes Orbital Transport was a “must have” kit for a generation of rocketeers. Now, the new Estes Super Orbital Transport is here and ready to inspire a new generation!

New Great Features of Super Orbital Transport:

The new Estes Super Orbital transport is the bigger and updated version of the original kit. Re-engineered with laser-cut wood structural units, custom jigs to aid in accurate and speedy construction, a set of high-quality plastic nose cones, and two sheets of detailed, three-color decals to replicate the 1969 kit. This new model recreates the strikingly realistic look and feel of the original, only bigger!

You'll need some basic tools and finishing supplies to build it, but the result is a spectacular rocket model with two sheets of detailed, three-color decals for an authentic look and feel. To launch, you'll need a Porta Pad II Launch Pad and Controller, 6 mm Maxi Launch Rod, Model Rocket Engines, and Recovery Wadding.

Dazzling dual recoveries are the hallmark of the Estes Super Orbital Transport. Launches under the powerful thrust of the recommended C or D engines are equally impressive! This model lifts off upright in the traditional rocket launch configuration. At the peak of flight, the piggy-back glider detaches and begins its winged decent while the booster section returns under its own 45 cm parachute.
