They go up like a bat out of Hades! But come down like a feather of a dove! Fly safely in a reasonably sized back garden or tennis court sized patch of ground!
We have had a lot of fun with thousands of these cheeky single use cone rockets at schools, scout camp outs and even corporate events. This full featured kit is ideal for any kind of school workshop for young or old rocketeers!
The Junior Rocket Science Starter Set uses A motors (included) so that maximum fun is had without needing to relocate to a vast open area. Mind you, you do need to take the wind speed and direction into consideration as well as the nervous disposition of the neighbor's incontinent Basset hound...
These beauties are EZ to build, needing only five minutes to let a dab of five minute epoxy (included) cure. Decoration is up to you - use stickers, paint, felt pens or crayon or fly 'em naked.
You can also use 18mm B and C motors or even 24mm D impulse rocket motors but not in most back gardens!!! These lightning fast rockets are even more fun at night - the rocket exhaust makes the cone glow and the ejection charge/retro rocket is a hoot, too.
The Junior Rocket Science Starter Set includes a launch pad and launch controller that can be used again and again with hundreds of other smallish model rockets found in The Model Rocket Shop.
Here's what you get in your box:
- 12 Cone rocket bodies, AND extras for practice
- 4 packs of Estes A motors (12 motors total) with igniters
- Estes Porta Pad II (can be used for other small A/B/C rockets)
- Estes Electron Beam Controller
- Four Alkaline AA batteries
- Sachet of 5 minute epoxy and trimmings
- AltiTrak inclinometer to measure how high they go
You can be out of the box and into the air in under ten minutes!
Full colour illustrated instructions by email if required.
If you want more chip cup cones and motors, they are available in sets of nine motors and cones or 24 motors and cones complete with epoxy kits.
Don't forget, because this Starter Set and expansion packs include motors, we have to send your order by courier. We cannot post motors. Make sure you pick the correct shipping option upon checkout to avoid delay.
