More info

The Boosted Bertha is nothing more than the two-stage version of the Big Bertha, one of the oldest and most famous Estes rockets. The booster of this rocket will accelerate the Bertha skyward, reaching twice the height of a normal Big Bertha. After the second stage ignites, the booster releases and falls gently to the ground. Once the rocket reaches its apogee the recovery system, a colorful 18-inch parachute, will be ejected. This ensures the Boosted Bertha has a light landing so that it can quickly be prepared for another launch.

Estes quality body tubes, laser cut wooden fins, a molded plastic cone and easy to apply decals ensure you enjoy a full day of building.
