Experience the excitement of a launch with the Estes New Shepard Starter. This 1/66th scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard launch vehicle stands tall at 59 ft. and is marked with the iconic Blue Origin feather across the airframe. With the BE-3 engine firing for 110 seconds producing 110,000 lbs of thrust, it ascends more than 60 miles above the ground and into the vacuum of space. The passengers experience weightlessness before the capsule falls through the atmosphere under parachutes and touches down lightly on a cloud of dust.
The set includes everything needed to launch the rocket, including a launch pad, a launch controller, a pack of C5-3 engines, and a pack of recovery wadding. You can fly the model rocket again and again, just like the Blue Origin New Shepard. This starter set is capable of flying as high as 400 ft. on a C5-3 or C6-3 engine. Get an excitement from space exploration with the Estes New Shepard Starter Set!
In 1961 Alan Shepard became the first American in space. A decade later Alan Shepard walked on the moon. He carved the frontiers of space exploration so that later we could pave the path. It’s with that legacy in mind that the New Shepard Starter Set came to be.
Therefore, the Estes New Shepard Starter Set aims to bring that feeling of exploration, and the excitement of a launch, to the hands of everyone.
The Blue Origin New Shepard stands 59 ft. tall, and fires its BE-3 engine for 110 seconds producing 110,000 lbs of thrust. It's marked by name, and with the iconic Blue Origin feather across the airframe. The vehicle ascends through the clouds, more than 60 miles above the ground, and into the vacuum of space.
Here, the passengers experience weightlessness. The capsule, containing the newly minted astronauts, then falls through the atmosphere under parachutes and touches down lightly on a cloud of dust. The boosters that kick up the cloud allow the capsule to touch down extremely lightly, at a mile an hour or less.
The Estes New Shepard Starter Set is a 1/66th scale model of the Blue Origin New Shepard launch vehicle. It flies to altitude on a C5-3 or C6-3, and is capable of as much as 400 ft.
