Launch Set – Beginner Skill

(Formerly Easy to Assemble)

The Taser Launch Set from Estes is an exciting, radically designed high altitude rocket launch set that is easy to build. The rocket kit features a brightly colored one piece body tube, molded plastic fin set and bullet shaped nose cone. Simply glue a few rocket pieces together, apply the colorful self-stick decals and in less than an hour you’ll be ready for the launch pad!

The Taser rocket is 17 inches tall. With its custom three-fin design, it climbs to an outta sight altitude of over 1,000 feet. A bright-colored 12 inch preassembled parachute returns this rocket back to the launch site. You’ll be ready in minutes for another extreme launch experience!

    Great Rocket

    I have went though around 4 of these because I love them. This was my first rocket kit years back (made the mistake of using c engine on first flight lol). I would recommend this to beginners who have used ARF rockets E2X, and skill level 1 rockets before this and to experienced people who are just wanting to have fun.

    GREAT ROCKET BUT MUST USE ENERGIZER MAX BATTERY OR IT WONT WORK! ESTES NOTE: The battery statement pertains to the orange 9V launch controller. The rocket itself does not take a battery.

    Excellent first rocket

    Always was fascinated and a small child when my father who recently passed would launch all his different rockets… Was always simply amazed by them… Now my dad is gone and I have a 6 year old daughter myself I deceived to buy this amazingly wonderful piece of entertainment equipment… I’ve now purchased a second an plan to buy one each week to launch with her… Got her the foot stomp air rocket and that is a hit for her and her friends… Then daddy breaks out the thousand footers and really launches… So far 12 successful launches landings and recoveries

    Launch Controller

    Had Family over for our 7 year old Grandson’s Birthday Party.
    Followed al instructions to a tee. Came time to launch, controller would not work. I wonder how easy it will be to exchange for a functional controller. My son and I have launched many rockets before without any issues. he looked at it and I looked at it. just not functional. ESTES NOTE: IF the controller is the orange one that requires a 9V battery, a very high quality battery is required. Ones we have tested and know will work are the following: Fuji EnviroMAX (HOME DEPOT). Rayovac Ultra Pro (WALMART/AMAZON). Energizer Max (HOME DEPOT/WALMART).
