Estes Cherokee-E?
 
Last night I was perusing ebay and I thought I saw a listing for a new Estes Cherokee-E kit. I can't seem to find the listing now.

.....or was it the Scotch?

Thanks

I believe it's one of the Hobby Lobby exclusive releases.

Look at completed listings and see. The guy canceled his listing starting out at $.99. But with the scotch you may have seen $99 so you didn't bid (:

It's a stretch Cherokee-D.

It is indeed! I built this one a few weeks ago. BTW, Rustoleum Bright Blue gloss matches the blue of the decals almost perfectly.

No Hobby Lobby in my state, and I can't drive to the next nearby state that has one, but I found the online website and it listed the ESAM and Cherokee E. Put them in my cart, proceeded to checkout and.....
EEK!
$35 shipping for a $27 order? And after the 40% coupon was applied!
That is definitely way more than their actual shipping cost.
First and last time I try ordering from them.
HL, please give your potential customers from Alaska and Hawaii a break.
I don't mind paying for actual shipping charges, but that is RIDICULOUS!

What is the estimated altitude on an E9?

ghrocketman 11-06-2019 03:23 PM

Guaranteed the altitude is WAYYYYYYY TOO HIGH if this thing uses the same outrageously large 18" chute the old Cherokee-D had.
Even on a 12" chute the Cherokee-D had high potential of drifting away.
I learned the hard way after losing 3 of them on D12-7's back in the day.
I switched to long (90") streamers instead.
