If Estes has a problem with the name, they could quickly change it to the "Whirling Dervish".

Or, if they tend to land in the lake, the "Swirly".

Kudos to Estes for getting ahead of the curve here! If Congress ends up naming our new military space branch as they should - U.S. Space Corps, not Force! - Estes is good since they got there first!

Nifty rocket, good to see per the instructions posted on the Estes website that the decals are waterslides.

Maybe they could work out a deal with the military. You let us use your names on our rockets and we'll let you use our name on yours!

Ya know, as interested as I am to see if this thing works worth a hoot, I gotta admit it looks like something out of either a Farside cartoon or a Wallace and Gromit movie!

Yeah, somebody needs to beat on the nose with a BFH for the final cartoon touch.
