This model rocket really works!!! I have tested it numerous times myself. It can be powered by any ESTES model rocket engine A through C! NOTE, THE BOTTOM PIECE IS PRINTED UPSIDE-DOWN AND NEEDS TO BE FLIPPED AFTER PRINTING SO THAT IT CAN BE PROPERLY ASSEMBLED!!!!!!!!

Step 1

Print our model rocket in PLA filament with provided print settings.

Step 2

Assemble rocket by gluing bottom and middle together.

Tie strings of parachute in middle of rubber band.

Step 5

Insert band and parachute into the middle section with tissue paper to block the parachute from fire.
