I had some as a kid , then we even had a few when my daughter and sisters kids were kids

about 4 or 5 months ago , I saw a add on here somewhere , where you could preorder a Estes blue origin rocket

not that I was all that interested in the rocket , but , I was curious if the Estes technology has changed any over the years

but nope , pretty much still works exactly the way it did a few years ago , when I was a kid , cool smiley

so looking around their site , I saw that they would send you a free catalog

I remember as a kid , wall around with one of their catalogs folded up in my back pocket , so I ordered their free 2021 catalog , not really expecting it any time soon

and the very next day , I got a email from them saying it was in the mail , with a tracking number

I was like , are you kidding me , their giving me a tracking number for a free 100 page catalog ...........................pretty cool

so , I give their service department a A+

small catalog , 4"x6" , 100 pages

but what I found , is they still have several of the rockets they had when I was a kid , same name and paint ,

and a bunch of new ones , some are like REALLY !!!! cool

even though I owned a few rockets as a kid . most meet their demise in one fashion or another wink2 smiley

this one was my pride and joy , only flew a couple times , mostly just sat in the comer of my bedroom when I was still at home
