Go SUPER SIZE with the Estes Super Alpha, bigger and beefier brother of the ever so famous Alpha rocket. Featuring quality components, easy assembly and reliable performance, Super Alpha is just itching to get to the launch pad for some serious rocket action.
This classically styled spacecraft stands 495mm tall and can launch up to 600 feet high using Estes standard rocket motors. Recovery is by an included 46cm preassembled parachute.
A Skill Level 1 kit, Super Alpha builds easily and features laser-cut wood fins, a gorgeously proportioned plastic nose cone and waterslide decals to help you create a display piece you can be proud of.
Keep your pride and joy coming back for more flights by increasing the reliability of the recovery system. Check out Recovery Upgrade Kit C.
If you've got a bit of rocket building and flying experience, you will realise that the BT-60 body tube used in the Super Alpha kit is more than capacious enough for a 25mm D motor mount. Add a bit of modelling clay ballast to the nose and Super Alpha is ready the truly blast off!
