DEAL Two Stage Rookie
Big, Colourful with Booster
[EST 2498+B]

Bundled with Booster-60! AND when you put a D9 on top you'll get more of what you pay for - ALTITUDE!

ARF - Almost Ready to Fly - means fins into slots, parachute on, load the motor, that's it. Just minutes is all you need and you are ready to BLAST-OFF!

There is really nothing "rookie" about this rocket! Quick assembly and a high flier, the Rookie powered by standard engines B or C can reach heights over 500 feet. And if you want to go really high, add the BT-60 Booster Accessory (EST 2256) and a D12-0 booster engine and watch this rocket soar! Of course, you can also fit a Klima D9-7 and watch this Rookie try for orbit ;-)

But if the wind is up or the trees are closer than you'd like you can always fly it on a single 18mm B :-)

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. For more information click HERE

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). For more information click HERE

Estes model rocketry is recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters and recovery wadding are required - sold separately-unless otherwise specified.
