The NEW Silver Arrow is one of Estes’ E2X (Easy to Assemble) line of model rockets. You can experience the thrill of building and flying your own high performance model rocket with this fun set. All pre-coloured parts mean no paint is needed and that equals more time for fun! When Estes says "easy", they mean all done and dusted in well under a half hour!
Start with the A motors as this is a light and slim rocket that will go surprisingly high on lower power motors.
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 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.
