Easy as pie to assemble, no painting required
The 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. When available, we provide A motors with this set - B motors are a good second option to get maximum value out of the courier fee.

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. Click HERE for more info.
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 CLICK HERE for more information.
The included Launch System consists of a Launch Controller and Launch Pad . Silver Arrow requires rocket motors, battery power, igniters and recovery wadding to operate. These are ALL included with this set from Model Rocket Shop in our Deluxe Set!
