Description HeliCat is a good looking rocket with a trick up its sleeve. Launched in the conventional way, the surprise comes when, at apogee, HeliCat deploys a 30.5cm parachute for the booster section, whilst the nose cone helicopters back to earth separately - incredible! Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly.

In just a few minutes you will have this rocket ready for the launch pad! All you need is glue and plastic cement. No paint is necessary which means more time for fun! Powered by Estes standard rocket motors, this quick-build E2X (Easy to Assemble) series rocket reaches heights of over 500 feet!

LAUNCH SYSTEM includes Astron II Launch Controller and Astron II Launch Pad.

N.B The Launch controller requires a 9V battery. We recommend using Energiser 9V batteries as UK Duracell 9V batteries are only designed for low power applications like smoke alarms.

In order to launch a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters, battery and recovery wadding are required - sold separately-unless otherwise specified.
