FLIGHT PROFILE
The 220 Swift“ is Estes smallest and lightest rocket. Because of it s size and weight, it
uses Featherweight or Tumble Recovery. The ejection charge ejects the engine, causing
a shift in the center of gravity. This allows the rocket and the engine to tumble lightly and
safely to the ground.

To avoid serious injury,
read instructions & NAR
Safety Code included with
engines.
PREPARE YOUR ENGINE
ONLY WHEN YOU ARE
OUTSIDE AT THE LAUNCH
SITE PREPARING TO LAUNCH!
If you do not use your prepared
engine, remove the igniter before
storing your engine.

NOTE: If necessary, place a piece of tape
on side of engine to friction fit it in body.
IMPORTANT: Engine must not fit too tightly
into rocket. When the engine ejection charge
fires, the engine is pushed out of the rocket.

PRECAUTIONS
FLYING
YOUR ROCKET
Choose a large field (500 ft. [152 m] square) free of dry weeds and brown grass.
NAR Safety Code
The larger the launch area, the better your chance of recovering your rocket.
Football fields and playgrounds are great. Launch only with little or no wind and
good visibility.
Always follow the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) SAFETY CODE.

SUPPLIES
In addition to the parts included in the kit you will also need:
MISFIRES
NO DRY
GRASS
OR WEEDS
TAKE THE KEY OUT OF THE CONTROLLER. WAIT ONE MINUTE BEFORE
GOING NEAR THE ROCKET! Take the plug and igniter out of the engine. If the
igniter has burned, it worked but did not ignite the engine because it was not
touching the propellant inside the engine. Put a new igniter all the way inside the
engine without bending it. Push the plug in place. Repeat the steps under
Countdown and Launch.
