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!
