Are you seriously impatient? No time for painting! Or even letting the glue dry? This snap-together rocket kit can be ready to fly in under 10 minutes (under three minutes with practice)
This is one for the kidz or for grown-ups that have no patience for glue/paint to dry. Build this kit in minutes.. no glue required, no painting, easy to assemble and ready to fly in record time. No fiddly fins to align - straight flights are virtually guaranteed. Colourful stick on decals finish the job in seconds.
Some may lament the passing of the skill requirement in model rocket flying... but the Nintendo generation expects everything to light up with a power switch. For good or ill, that's life in the tweenies. And here's the rocket to fulfill that requirement.
Estes sez: Just snap the pre-colored parts together (no painting), apply the colorful decals, and you're ready to fly in just a matter of minutes! It's perfect for the first time rocketeer! (This time there's very little of Estes' hyperbole to wipe off)
This kit is the rocket ONLY. If you need launch gear, motors, etc, those components are sold a la carte! Or just by the Deluxe set :-)
This rocket is nearly identical to the Dragonite - just colour and decal set are different.
