Owning the Alpha III means joining the hundreds of thousands of people who had their start in model rockets with this classic. The Estes Alpha III was the very first rocket in the E2X (Easy to Assemble) series. The E2X series was designed with beginners in mind. With all pre-coloured rocket parts and easily applied self-adhesive decals, you're ready for lift-off in minutes. To assemble the rocket, nothing more than a little glue is required.

Using recommended Estes rocket motors, the Alpha III soars to heights of 1,100 feet. Whether you're a first time rocketeer or a long time flyer, the Alpha III is a true classic that should be in everyone's collection.
