  1. Jay Harris

    The best starter rocket kit for young to middle grade schoolers! The Generic E2X has all the basic rocket building components except balsa fins. I lead a 2nd thru 5th grade rocket club at our school. They are challenged when it comes to gluing on the balsa wood fins so this is the rocket for them. It files great and is practically indestructible! The mylar decals are hard for them to get straight but using paint pens allow them to make unique colorful creations of this white canvas!

    Love the name

    Love this little easy to build and fast little rocket. There is nothing generic about this bad boy!!

    Nicely done ARTF bird

    I was expecting to be disappointed by this rocket, but I was anything but. This would make a great bulk buy for a scout troop, etc., and with the right glue could be built and flown in the same day. ESTES NOTE: the Generic E2X is available in two different bulk packs. The 1764 and 1753.

    Great Update!

    I built a Generic rocket years ago when it needed plastic cement to finish. I love the updated construction that requires only white glue, even with a plastic fin can! Great technique! This is an excellent first rocket. Also great for schools, Scouts, etc.
