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 1,100 feet. A bright-colored 12 inch parachute returns this rocket back to the launch site. You’ll be ready in minutes for another extreme launch experience!

    My First Rocket

    This was my first rocket I ever received. This is an amazing starter rocket and is what got me into model rockets.

    easy build

    just built this with my 5 year old son. great 1st time build. Simple- mostly just a little gluing and stickers. Just ordered engines and wadding and he cant wait to launch it after the last day of school! Should be a great start to summer!

    Awesome Rocket!

    I bought this for my son’s birthday for his first rocket. It’s a great kit to get started. Easy to put together and it flies great. Had two successful launches with the recommended starter engines. Can’t wait to try it out with a larger size engine!

    Great First Rocket!!!

    Got this kit for my son (11) for Christmas. We put it together in about 2 hours split over 2 nights. (He has ADHD and has never built a model before, so we went slow and split it up.) I could have probably done it in an hour. Flew it on an A8-3 for the first flight. Flew straight up and floated down about 30 feet from the pad. Launched again on a C6-5, flew straight forever, then floated into a tree at the edge of the park. He loved it and already has a second kit we hope to build and launch this weekend!

    high flying

    Santa brought this rocket to my home for my 5 yr old son. He helped me decal it and off we to the largest area of grass we could find. Area included a soccer field and three baseball diamonds. Off goes the rocket and I’m still looking for it. It was observed going over the neighborhood school. We had C engines

    Launched it in Catskill NY, it’s now somewhere in Hudson NY. OMG this thing went high then drifted across the Hudson river. Was lots of fun and my daughter loved it. We have a new hobby. Someone suggested cutting a small hole in the paracute so it comes down faster. We will try it with our next rocket.
