Description

Launch Set – Beginner Skill

High performance model rocketry at a moderate price. The 16 inch FLASH is a great addition to the Snaps line of model rockets from Estes. You can experience the thrill of building and flying your own high performance model rocket without the need for gluing or waiting. The FLASH rocket kit literally “snaps” together in minutes with the uniquely molded fin set. The pre-colored body tube attaches easily and the die cut decals are a breeze to apply. In just minutes you will have built your 1st model rocket that will look like it was made by a pro! Ease of assembly is just one of the great features of this set. The main feature of the FLASH is the sleek, drag defying design that provides high performance, cloud punching flights over 925 feet on standard Estes engines.

Each Flash Launch Set comes complete with a wicked looking FLASH snap together model rocket kit and our super reliable Estes Launch System.

LAUNCH SYSTEM includes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and Electron Beam Controller.

    awesome

    awesome rocket flies high and straight

  2. Luis

    Fantastic and easy to assemble

    My 4 year-old daughter LOVED this rocket. Unfortunately, dear old dad got a little overzealous and put a C-engine in it with not enough field space and lost it after quite a few sucessful B-level launches. It flies straight, true and HIGH when given the proper enginee. Rest assured, we’ll be buying another one – awesome rocket that kids and adults alike will love.

    Great Beginner Rocket Set

    I bought this rocket set to teach some Cub Scouts about physics for a science activity that they were working on. It was easy to assemble and provided an enormous amount of entertainment. It made the teaching of physics easier to understand and more fun for the kids. Great kit !

    Compared to the rockets I used 20 years ago, this set got my family up and running in just a few short minutes with no pain! excellent new engine mount system and solid craftsmanship for a secure flight.
    Great set! highly sugest getting this one to save time and money for more engines and more flights. Our 4 year old was in heaven!
