Thinking about far-out fun? Think of Der Red Max Model Rocket! An Estes classic, the Der Red Max has a large stable design, giving great sport performance. A great addition to any rocket collection!

The Der Red Max model rocket is a classic that not only looks good, but also performs as good as it looks and has a personality all its own!

Standing just a tad over 16 inches tall, the Max is one of our rockets that's a must have in your rocket arsenal. Not to mention, every launch with our standard engines will give you stellar flights over 500 feet. To top it off, a colorful 18 inch parachute accomplishes the recovery for safe landings.

In addition to retaining all of the great looks and flying qualities of the original, this new version now features laser cut wood fins for improved performance and it has a waterslide decal set that replicates the original - including the totally cool skull and crossbones.

Very Reliable Rocket

Great rocket, looks cool and is a stable flier. I have flown it two times so far; once using a B4-4 engine and once using a C6-5. It flew perfectly straight and the recovery system deployed nicely. The skull and crossbones parachute is a nice touch. The Red Max looks great floating down to the ground and even with a C6-5 engine it always landed near the launchpad.

Ok but not good

It’s a realy cool, sleek rocket but is a pain to build. It’s good if you know how to build large kind rockets but for its level it it too hard.
