Ghost Chaser Snap-Together Rocket Kit (Estes)


Price: $21.99 each


Easy to build (no glue required) model rocket from Estes with a translucent blue color scheme. The Ghost Chaser is a neat looking rocket and assembly is as simple as sliding the fins into the fin can. Reaching altitudes up to 550 feet, you can launch it with standard size B or C engines and it recovers with a parachute.

The Ghost Chaser is a simple rocket that packs in a lot of fantastic features. Designed as an easy-to-build, snap-together, Beginner-Level kit, this model goes together quickly and easily in the hands of even the newest rocketeer. In no time you’ll have a finished Ghost Chaser standing nearly two feet tall with its striking silvery white main body tube and clear, five-inch payload section. A sleek transition separates the two tubes, reducing the rocket body from a standard 18mm BT20 to a svelte 13mm BT5. The blue translucent fins almost seem to glow when the light hits them. Shine that light through the semi-transparent engine mount, nosecone, and the mid-body transition and watch them glow eerily in blue, too.

Since all Ghost Chaser components are pre-finished, there’s no sanding or painting required. A clever system of slots, tabs and clips (and a well knotted shock cord) holds this no-muss, no-fuss model together without a drop of glue. Finish off this fanciful flyer with the included sheet of cool, custom sick-on decals. The Ghost Chaser looks great almost straight from the box. You’ll have an amazing and functional flying model rocket in a flash!

Launching the Ghost Chaser is as straightforward as the build. The threaded engine mount makes loading and changing engines a breeze. Be ready to track your Ghost Chaser back to ground level after ejection and deployment of the 12 inch parachute. And the best part? Recovery, reload and launch again!
