Beginner Skill
(Formerly Easy to Assemble)


The Estes AstroCam is equipped with its own high-definition digital video camera and a specially engineered nosecone to house the camera during flight. Start the camera while the rocket is on the launch pad and begin recording audio and video onto the included 16GB Micro SD Memory Card. Stand back and press the launch button and the model rocket camera captures the breathtaking sights and sounds from liftoff through recovery from onboard the rocket itself!

The Beginner-Level Astrocam rocket goes together quickly and can be ready to fly in less than 30 minutes. All parts are pre-finished for you – build your own rocket with no gluing or painting. Each Astrocam Starter Set contains an Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and Electron Beam Launch Controller (requires four 1.5V alkaline AA batteries, not included). The set also comes with flight supplies – two different types of engines, starters, plugs, and recovery wadding – for your first two Astrocam launches.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Clear tape. (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)

LAUNCH SYSTEM includes Estes Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and Electron Beam Launch Controller. Four 1.5V high quality AA alkaline batteries are also required for launch controller (not included).

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes model rocket engines, starters and recovery wadding.

  1. Tom

    Great to see a camera available again, and to call it Astrocam to boot! Great idea having the nose come attached at the tip to keep the camera downward. Would you please post the instructions? Also, will the rocket be available separately (without the pad and launcher). I already have a storage tote *filled* with starter kit launch equipment! Thanks!

  2. Mr Paul Lavin (verified owner)

    This Astrocam looks a lot better than the late and not-so-great Oracle. What is the cam’s resolution?

  3. Rocket Guru

    Happy to see the return of the improved Estes ASTROCAM. Are we limited to only 16GB Micro SD cards, for memory and how much recording time is available with the 16GB Micro SD card, Estes? The Estes CAMROC was Estes first rocket movie camera based on the BT-60. The older ASTROCAM2 was a 110 camera for single photos, triggered during the parachute deployment, based on the BT-56 heavy duty tubes.
