The Estes Taser Rocket Launch Set is a high-altitude rocket for model rocket enthusiasts. The Estes Taser Rocket Launch Set is an exciting, radically designed rocket launch set from the E2X series. This Estes Model Rocket kit features a brightly colored one-piece body tube, a molded plastic fin set and a bullet-shaped nose cone. The Estes Taser Rocket Launch Set includes a launch pad and controller to get started in the hobby of model rocketry. This Estes Model Rocket can climb to an altitude of over 1,000' and includes a 12" pre-assembled parachute to help it land safety. The Estes Taser Rocket Launch Set does not include model rocket engines. Model rockets are fun for all ages, and this Estes Model Rocket starter kit can provide hours of entertainment.
The product page doesn't include any photo of the launch pad or controller, so you may not be clear on the fact that this is a launch set -- a starter kit for model rocketry, if you will. So it's a better value than it appears. However, it does not come with rocket engines or recovery wadding, which you'll have to buy separately (but which Walmart doesn't carry on this site).
The model rockets I built when a teenager were made with balsa wood fins and glued entirely with white glue or carpenter's glue. This model features plastic parts and so you'll need plastic model cement, which is harder to find nowadays than it sued to be. You do need a little white glue for gluing the elastic cord into the paper model tube.
