This is the Estes Alpha III Rocket Kit. Join the hundreds of thousands of people who got their start in model rockets with this classic! The Alpha III was the very first rocket in the E2X series (Easy to Assemble). This rocket series was designed with the first time rocketeer in mind. With all precolored rocket parts and easily applied self-stick decals, you're ready for liftoff in minutes. The black body tube, fluorescent orange nose cone and one piece fin unit quickly builds into one flashy rocket!
With nothing more needed than glue, you can be on the flying field in no time at all! Using standard engines, the Alpha III soars to heights over 1,100 feet (335 m). Whether you're a first time rocketeer or a long time flier, this 12.3 inch (31.1 cm) rocket is a true classic that should be in every collection.
