    This is the oldest kit I have in my line-up. It was the first version to be produced by Estes and came in a plastic bag without a paper hang tag. Later pre Demon Alpha kits came with a yellow paper hang tag which I also have. However it is missing some parts.

    This particular kit was missing the parachute. I used a mint parachute from my spare Astron Alpha to make it complete.

    This kit uses an ejection ducting system and therefore does not need recovery wadding.

    All body tubes are crushed and most will need to be replaced.
    The balsa nose cone also has a big crushed dent that needs to be taken care of.
    The decal has completely yellowed over time.

    Badminton shuttlecock rocket with featherweight recovery.

    This is an old Estes Astron Birdie and is a perfectly preserved example of an Estes classic!

    I think the Birdie was certainly one of the most novelty of all rockets in the Estes lineup.

    This is one of my earliest model rockets that I built in 1981.

    In March 2011 I decided to repair the fins and completely repaint the model.

    Here a picture before I begann the restoration:
  • Click me...

    It had gone through some tough times.

    On 7th October, 2013 I decided to retire this old rocket.

    Pro Series II line.

    On 17th May 2014 I certified NAR level 1 using a CTI H-163 with this rocket.
    I also modified the upper section of the nose cone to incorporate an altimeter which I made and was used for dual deploy recovery.
