Description

The Big Daddy is a colossal 3 inch diameter 19 inch tall model that flies on high thrust C, D, and E motors up to 1375 ft.  As a short, stubby rocket, careful attention to stability is important, so don't add excess weight to the tail, and don't be afraid to add nose weight if needed. And consider flying another day if winds are high. It's a spectacular flier, but not for windy days. With Estes' recent retirement of its C11 motors, Estes D12 motors are the go-to motor for this model, though using an 18mm - 24mm motor adapter with the Quest C12-4 motor will work nicely in small fields. Aerotech 24mm E15, E20, and E30 motors are also good high altitude motors for the Big Daddy.
