With nothing more needed than glue for this launch set, you can be on the flying field in no time at all! Using standard Estes engines (sold separately) the Alpha III sores to heights of 1100 feet. Whether you're a first time rocketeer or a long time flyer, the Alpha III is a true classic that should be in everyones' collection.
