Description Are two really better than one? We think so! The skillfully engineered Estes Sidekick manages to combine two of almost everything to produce one remarkable model rocket. It's a single rocket with two body tubes, two nose cones, two engine mounts, two recovery systems, and two sets of laser-cut balsa fins. Custom-cut, card stock body tube joiners mate one half of this two-part flyer to the other. There's nothing else quite like the double trouble of the Estes Sidekick. But it doesn't just look sharp. The cleverly designed Estes Sidekick is an excellent flier, too. This Advanced level model was created for clustered engine launches. Experience spectacular rocket flights to 700 feet or more under the combined thrust of two side-by-side Estes B6-4 engines. Recoveries are dazzling to watch when the 36-inch twin mylar streamers deploy at ejection and trail the model back to earth. From ignition to touch-down, the flight of the dual-bodied Estes Sidekick rocket is not to be missed!
Both expert and beginner model rocketeers will enjoy building the Sidekick. You've never worked on a rocket like this before! Precision construction is a must for this non-standard design. Finish your Estes Sidekick with the included yellow and orange, water-slide flame decals.

Put this rocket on the flight line and watch the heads turn. It's not every day you see a clustered engine, two-in-one flying model rocket. Don't delay! Double time it the launch field today and light up the sky with the dynamic dual delights of the Estes Sidekick!
