Maxi V-2 Fin Upgrade Kit
- Strengthen your Estes Maxi V-2 Kit with durable 3D printed fins from Boyce Aerospace Hobbies
- Kit includes 4 fins and 4 steering vanes
- Our fins are the same size and shape as the originals

- The fins’ 3D printed steering vanes are very accurate and are glued into a hole on the bottom backside of each fin
- Includes step-by-step Assembly Instructions
Do you dread building that Estes Maxi V-2 kit sitting in your closet because the vacuum formed fins are a builder’s nightmare to assemble? Do you want to fly your model on 24mm composite motors but don’t trust the strength of those wimpy fins? Looking for more detail such as real 3D steering vanes? Boyce Aerospace Hobbies has the solution for you. We’ve recreated the fins in high-strength 3D printed ABS plastic! The fins have the size and shape of the originals; including the panel lines and trailing antenna detail (just add a 1/16th inch dowel). The fins also include 3D printed steering vanes that are more accurate than the Estes version which was part of the fin vacu-form. Our steering vanes are glued into a hole on the bottom backside of each fin. These fins are a bit heavier than the original thin vacu-formed fins, but they add amazing strength to your model. Since the model is marginal when flying with a D12 or an E9, we suggest using Aerotech 24mm composite motors so the Maxi V-2 can actually fly! In this kit, you receive 4 fins and 4 steering vanes and complete instructions with each order.
Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
Perfect experience - good communication, prompt shipping. These fins are gorgeous, I’m so glad I got these for my Maxi V2. Durable and fantastic detail, a definite upgrade from the vac-form Estes fins.
FINALLY building the Estes V2
I had the unbuilt Estes V2 kit sitting in the garage for several years. Every time I thought about building it, the stock vacuum formed fins made me put it back. I bought a set of these upgrade fins and am now in the middle of building it! The fins are MUCH nicer than the website illustration appears. I am a very happy camper; thank you for bringing these to market!
V-2 fin upgrade.
Really nice product. Very well manufactured and they weren't as heavy as anticipated. Going to make the Estes Maxi-Brute V-2 build much more enjoyable!
Maxi V2 fins
Quick delivery and look great! Much better detail and solid vs kit fins. Quality fins will allow for safe launch/recovery. Light sanding will be required due to 3D printing. Upgraded fins will allow kit upgrade to 29mm motor mount vs 24mm.
WOW - fantastic quality!!
Really excellent craftsmanship and quality - I'm very pleased. This is the perfect touch for my Maxi V-2 build. Well done - thank you!!
