Some of you have been with us from the very beginning. For others, it may have been a few weeks, years or even decades since the last time we met on the launch field. Regardless of how long it’s been, or how much the world has changed, the thrill of rocketry is still here!
Today we’re inviting you back into the exciting world of rocketry, where you don’t just pass the time with fun projects. You create a world in which you’re proud of what you can build and how high you can make it fly.
Because with Estes, it’s not just about passing the time. It’s about making every day a new adventure.
The Astron Explorer is a master level model that will spur your imagination and test your crafting skills.
Standing over 42 in. tall, this masterpiece is one of the largest rockets in the Estes flight! Using the same laws of physics that have launched man to the moon and NASA’s InSight Lander to Mars, you’ll send your Astron Explorer skyward to over 600 ft. with an Estes D12-3 engine (not included).
Tiny but mighty, the Airborne Surveillance Missile was a very popular kit in the 80’s and again today! Mini engine powered and a unique scale like appearance, you will be surprised how well this rocket will fly. Reaching heights of 375 ft. on an A10-3T, you’ll get a big launch experience on a small field.
Twin Factor, as in “twin” rockets”. That’s right, you get two rockets not just one! Launch them together or launch the
upper stage by itself! Mini engine powered and fun to launch!
Single or two-stage, the Savage can reach amazing heights up to 1,600 ft.! Standing 31.8 in. tall, this rocket is impressive on the launch pad and in the sky! An easy Intermediate assembly, in about an hour you will have a great addition to your collection.
Take to the skies with the Sky Warrior and watch this rocket climb over 800 ft. when launched on a C6-5 engine. Three finned and unique styling, keep an eye on the Sky Warrior as the 12 in. parachute brings this awesome rocket back to earth.
A unique pre-printed folded paper design! Definitely a first for Estes, the Hex-3 is going to challenge your building
skills! While it might be small, don’t be fooled! UNIQUE folded paper construction is your challenge here. Not to
worry though, you are going to love this rocket! Booster engine powered and fun to launch!
A long-time hobbyist’s dream build, this high flying booster model rocket kit is what Estes model rocketry is all about. Inspired by Russian military design, this scale-like model rocket is sure to enthuse the most dedicated rocketeer. A masterful build, this high flying booster model rocket can reach heights of 2300 ft. when powered by E model rocket engines in both stages.
Hmmm, do you want to fly a single-stage, payloader, dual-stage, maybe even release a glider at apogee? The Multi-Roc is a booster rocket that lets you do it all! This parts-packed kit has everything you need to fly six different ways, and the all-balsa parasite glider is included too! Flies to 1200 ft. as a multi-stage rocket, or stay closer to Earth with a single stage launch.
The Black Brant series represents the most successful group of sounding rockets ever launched! This advanced 1:13 scale model rocket is a replica of the primary research vehicle produced by Canada Bristol Aerospace and is an excellent choice for your first scale project. Use the recommended D12-5 (sold separately) to reach heights of 1300 ft. Great performance and really impressive flights!
Estes model rocket engines are used to thrust your model rocket into the air. Engines come in a various ranges of power from A to F. Each engine size is up to twice as powerful as the letter before it.
The chart to the left tells you what size field to use for each size engine. For launch information, look at the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code. You should always check with your local city government for any special regulations that may apply to your area. Generally speaking, you can fly most Estes model rockets in a clear area the size of a football field or soccer field. Launch in little or no wind, and make sure there is no dry grass close to the launch pad or in the flying field.
