Bulk Pack – Beginner Skill

(Formerly Easy to Assemble)

Alpha III is our most popular beginning level rocket. It’s the beginner version of the classic Estes Alpha rocket. No painting and no modeling experience required for this one. This jet black rocket has a bright orange plastic nose cone and fin unit that make for easy, quick assembly. Finishing the Alpha III is a breeze with the self-stick decals.

You’ll need the Electron Beam Launch Controller and the Porta-Pad II Launch Pad to launch this favorite. Alpha III uses standard Estes engines (A, B, or C engines) for propellant and is recovered with a 12 inch parachute. If you want outstanding performance flight after flight, the Alpha III is it!

    we use em in camp

    in civil air patrol, a cadet program for the air force, we use these for aerospace education. we use only A engines as we are on an airport so we needed low flying stable rockets. these were what we got paid for by the us air force.

    Great for cub scouts

    This kit was the perfect difficulty level for my Weblos Cub Scouts. The fins are already configured, so you don’t have to try and get them alinged. That means that they are easy to build and more importantly, fly straight. They are also much sturdier rockets and survive falls very well. I build one that has been launched at least a dozen times and is still going strong. I would recommend using a streamer in place of the included parachute if the day is windy and your field is not huge. The rocket is hardy enough to survive the fall.

    They were very satisfied how everyone got their own instruction manual and All the students had lots of fun!
