Double your fun with our new Taser X duo - TWO Taser kits and SIX A motors!
Tasers build fast and fly high even on smaller motors. This is Estes starter set for beginning rocket builders - with enhanced reliability.

This Taser X Deluxe Starter Set is for people who want to build AND fly rockets. That being said, the kit goes together in under an hour with white glue and plastic cement or CA. The critical fin assembly is engineered for correct alignment so the hard part is done. Give the glue a half hour to set before you fly it, eh? ;-)
Building your own rocket adds a certain edge... and you have much larger bragging rights at the end of your successful flights!
The Taser's 3-fin design allows this sleek, high flyer to soar up to 1,000 feet into the air with a C motor... but initial training flights can be kept closer to earth with smaller A or B motors. Performance on a "mere" A motor is still pretty amazing.
This E2X skill level kit is VERY easy to assemble - a half hour's work, max, under normal circumstances. Colourful stick on decals finish the job without painting.

No painting is required thanks to the pre-colored parts. After the glue is dry, simply apply the decals, and you're ready to blast off. In standard trim, the Taser recovers on a colorful and pre-assembled 12 inch plastic parachute and is ready to fly again in minutes.
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
This Deluxe Taser X starter set is extremely good value because it includes all you really need: TWO Taser kits, batteries, some wadding, a pack of SIX motors along with the launch pad and launch controller. Just add a few dabs of glue then take it to a good place to fly!
Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12. Motors cannot be sold to persons under 18 years of age in the UK.
