Estes E2X Series Space Shuttle Gliding Model Rocket Starter Set


I Made This Space Shuttle a 2ch RC, the rear rudder/elev work now, so you have control of it.

I used a Parkzone micro cessna 3ch micro receiver.

I added the receiver, painted it, now i'm about to apply Shuttle decals I hade esp made!!!...It's from a company that makes decals for the 1/96th scale space shuttle models. I had them reduce the scale of the decals 2% was what we figured it out to be, 98% correct.

The company is: Lake County Space Port

Now The Decals...These were not cheap!!

That should work ok, the glider will get pretty small and elevons would work better for roll control on boost with this model, but I know bricks are hard to do elevons with.

Others have done a similar conversion on the guillows foamie at a similar size using brick as pop pod and parasite I believe

I built mine quite a bit larger but light with no pop pod as this was just too tiny for me.

Looking forward to a flight report.
