One cool retro 60s looking rocket is just what the Atomic Sky is! (Apologies for the marketing department's poor grammar) Estes newest launch system comes with it is just an added bonus! Easy to assemble and with all pre-colored parts so no messy painting required. And in our DELUXE set you get all you need to build AND motors and wadding for THREE launches.
On a C motor, Estes says you'll get 1125 feet (351 meters) on a good day... best start with some Bs unless you fancy a long walk! That's what we will include in our Deluxe set ;-) But if you like long walks in the country, try a Klima D9 which has twice the power of an Estes C.

The weakest link in any standard rocket kit is the recovery system. Estes standard components are built to a low price, not a high level of durability. To be sure you get your rocket back we recommend Starter/Launch Set Upgrade Kits, an economical version of our Recovery Upgrade Kits that addresses the standard recovery components' short comings and is a bit kinder on the environment, too. For more information about our rocket-saving and economical recovery upgrades CLICK HERE
Our full-on Recovery Upgrade Kits provide the highest level of durability. They are principally for rocket builders that value the time and skill they put into their birds. That's not to say that failing to get back a beloved Starter Set rocket is any less traumatic (especially if child disappointment is involved). You can see more information if you CLICK HERE
