Upgrade the capacity of your launch controller with the “E”. This launch controller enables you to launch the E Estes motors, but can launch any Estes Engine. This controller includes a safety switch, continuity check, and that good ole’ button called “Launch”.

It comes complete with safety key and 30 ft. of cable. Requires 4 “AA” alkaline batteries, not included.

    If you only use conventional (ie, not composite) motors, this is a great choice and a step up from the launcher that comes with most launch kits. Longer, heavy duty wires make a difference. It also uses AAs instead of 9vs. You’d think that wouldn’t matter, but with the change to the new style starters (which just get hot and don’t have any actual ignition source like the old kind did), you need high quality batteries to push enough current through the starter. Finding great AAs is easier great 9vs in my experience. Cruddy batteries will cause problems, especially on cold days. Construction of the case is good but not great – my older model had a little cover over the continuity light that keeps falling off. Looks like they phased that out.

    VERY cheaply made product and total waste of money.They break very easily, I have gone through 4 of them. Get the pro series launch controller instead.

    Launches all my rockets

  4. great

    great for schools

    it is great for school rocketing competitions because you don’t have to walk up to it and light it and then run away. you can just stand back press the test button and then fire.

    Love it!!!

    I love the fact that i can launch almost any rocket in my fleet. plus it looks better and not to mention it doesn’t feel like it has cheap wires. Instead the wires have a larger gauge and feel like they can handle a lot more.

    Most Versital Controller

    If you’re looking to purchase a launch controller then this is the way to go. It can launch any of the engines A through G including the mini engines.

    Good for ALL size rockets to “G”!

    Estes, Estes! I cannot believe that you failed to mention that the E Launch Controller is good for ALL rockets you sell! The 30-foot cord to the launch pad is good for all engines 1/4A to G. You can use the standard 15-foot controller system if you are launching D engines and below, but the 30-foot system is good for all Estes engines. In addition to length of cord, you also get a better launch controller in materials and looks. So, if you are a serious rocketeer like myself, go ahead and spend the few more dollars and consider it a lifetime investment!

    Combine this control system with the Porta-Pad E® Launch Pad. If you have an even bigger rocket with 3/16″ launch lugs, also order the 3/16″ Two-Piece MAXI™ launch rod. Smaller rockets use the 1/8″ Two-Piece Launch rod, also available separately.
