More info

The Loadstar II is a very interesting rocket for the experimenter. You can put any sort of experiments into its large payload section, 40 mm diameter and 10 centimeter of useful space. As a two-stager, the Loadstar II will bring your devices to an incredibly high altitude. You can also use this rocket as your first multi-stage model and enjoy the thrill these kind of rockets are able to give.

Construction is traditional, fins are laser cut from balsa and must be glued to the body tube, and you will have to paint the rocket with spray cans.

This rocket requires a launching pad with 3 mm launch rod like the Estes Porta Pad II, the Estes Astron Launch Pad or the Klima Launch Pad, and an electric launch controller as the Estes Electron Beam, the Estes Astron Launch Controller or the Klima Launch Controller.

  • Pre-assembled plastic parachute
