The Mini "A" Heli of Estes is a model rocket that is recovered by helicopter blades, all to be built.
The peculiarity of this model are its long blades that remain aligned to the rocket body during vertical flight and are freed when the model reaches the apogee. At this point the blades open and the whole model slowly returns to earth, rotating like a helicopter. Flight time will be around 45-60 seconds.
This rocket is designed for fun but also for competitions. It requires a complete assembly, with some precautions that require a certain skill.
The kit includes templates for the correct positioning of the parts, a reinforcing fabric and a plastic tool to be used to cut the body tube accurately. If you like to build and you are a precise and careful model maker, this model will give you a lot of satisfactions.
