[EST 1928]

L.G.M. or LGM means Little Green Men. You have to wonder sometimes if the Estes marketing department is running dry...

This is a tough one to classify. You need to do a LITTLE assembly but really nothing more difficult than opening the box ;-) No paint required and no glue needed either. So it's not exactly RTF but it isn't a full-on kit either.

But it sure has an alien onboard! Mostly white in colour makes it easier to find in the grass. If you wind up losing it or hanging it from a tree branch, Estes also supplies the rocket a la carte.

If you are new to model rocketry, LOOK HERE to watch a slightly hyper US promo video for Estes model rockets.

Take a look at this See a Riptide (a very similar rocket) launch video by clicking HERE Your viewing enjoyment may be increased by turning the sound OFF ;-)

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 about bolstering that fragile element 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).

Set Includes:
Almost Ready to Fly rocket, an Estes launch pad, and an Estes launch controller. Also bundled in this pack are a pack of 3 rocket motors, recovery wadding and PP3 9V battery. All you need is a place to fly it! Good weather helps, too!
