Description

A true classic, the Alpha III was the first rocket in the Beginner level series. Designed with pre-colored parts and self-stick decals, you'll be ready for liftoff in under an hour. The launch set includes the Porta-Pad II launch pad and Electron Beam launch controller. Engines and recovery wadding sold separately.

  • The first rocket in the Beginner level series, the high-flying Alpha III was designed with beginners in mind.
  • Renown for its classic good looks, simple assembly, and excellent performance, the Alpha III is one of the model rocketry's best-known and most-loved designs. The black body tube, fluorescent orange nose cone and one piece fin unit makes this rocket easy-to-assemble and fun to fly. With nothing needed more than everyday household supplies and some glue, you'll be ready for lift-off in minutes. Using standard Estes engines (sold separately), watch as the Alpha III soars to 1100 feet high. Once the rocket reaches its peak altitude, it will gently return to earth on its brightly colored, matching orange 12 inch parachute.
  • WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, sandpaper, carpenters glue and hobby knife. (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)
  • WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad with a 1/8 inch launch rod and Electron Beam launch controller, Estes model rocket engines, starters and recovery wadding. Four 1.5 V high quality AA alkaline batteries are also required for launch controller (not included).
