The Estes Alpha III rocket launch set contains a launch controller, launch pad, and rocket kit packet with materials and instructions required to assemble the rocket. It is recommended for children 10 years and older with adult supervision up to age 12. The orange plastic nose cone, body tube, one-piece plastic tail fin unit, and self-stick decals allow assembly of the rocket without painting. Additional supplies required to launch the rocket include model rocket engine, starter, recovery wadding, and glue (sold separately). This rocket launch set provides the equipment required to launch (with required components) the Alpha III rocket repeatedly and is suitable for youth group activities such as with clubs and schools.

A model rocket kit includes reusable parts, and requires launching equipment and single-use launching supplies. These kits are recommended for children 10 years and older, with adult supervision advised to age 12. Rocket kit assembly encompasses a range of skill levels from Easy-to-Assemble (E2X), requiring only simple gluing and less than an hour of time to Level 5, requiring multi-step assembly with measuring, cutting, gluing, and painting tasks. Reusable rocket kit components include a cone, a body tube, and a recovery parachute. A rocket engine, a starter, and recovery wadding are used once. Rocket engines come in a variety of sizes, time delays, and burn durations. A "first-flight" engine recommendation is generally made for each rocket kit. A launch pad has a stable base and a vertical rod that provide vertical stability during initial liftoff. A launch controller has a keyed ignition switch to prevent accidental ignition, and a cable provides a safe distance from the rocket during launch. Bulk packs of model rocket kits are available for clubs and schools, and allow groups of children to experience building and launching a rocket.

Estes manufactures model rocket kits, launching equipment, and rocket engines. The company, founded in 1958, is headquartered in Penrose, CO.

Standing just under 20 inches tall and having a Big Daddy waist size of 3 inches, this high powered bullet is built to handle all the power you can stuff into the motor tube. The Estes rocket engineers have given the Big Daddy a contemporary new look and the biggest blow molded nose cones in the hobby. Whether launching on Estes E, C11 or D engines, this extreme rocket is returned safely on a colorful 24 inch preassembled parachute. Adding to your growing fleet of Rockets? Check out the brand new Mega Mosquito Level 2 Model Rocket Kit.



Blast Off to Learning Fun In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. Skill Level 2 is the first tier of more advanced kits that require beginner skills in model rocket construction, finishing and painting. Quality Estes body tubes, laser cut wood fins, molded plastic nose cone and waterslide decals make experience necessary to build this Skill Level 2 kit but the end result is worth the effort.



Mission Control The Big Daddy requires a Porta-Pad E and E Launch Controller as well as Estes engines for the launch (not included). Estes C11-3, D12-3, D12-5 or E9-6 engines are recommended for all missions. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters, recovery wadding and four 'AA' alkaline batteries are required sold separately unless otherwise specified. Read all instructions before beginning. Make sure you have all parts and supplies required. Test fit all parts before applying glue. Sand as necessary for precision assembly. Product color and shape may vary. When launching, stand back as far as the launch controller cord will allow (15 feet). Rocketry is not intended for indoor use. Choose a large field (500 feet), free of dry weeds and brown grass. Launch only with little or no wind and good visibility.

What's In The Box? Estes body tubes, laser cut wood fins, molded plastic nose cone, waterslide decals, 24 inch preassembled parachute and instructions. You will get hours of building fun with the rocket construction, finishing and painting needed to complete this impressive Skill Level 2 kit.
