This is the 1256 Alpha III Kit E2X Easy-to-Assemble
Join the hundreds of thousands of people who got their start in model rockets with this classic! The first rocket in the Beginner level series, the high-flying Alpha III was designed with beginners in mind.
Renown for its classic good looks, simple assembly, and excellent performance, the Alpha III is one of the model rocketry’s best-known and most-loved designs. The black body tube, fluorescent orange nose cone, and one-piece fin unit make this rocket easy to assemble and fun to fly! With nothing needed more than everyday household supplies and some glue, you’ll be ready for liftoff in minutes. Using Estes standard model rocket engines (sold separately), watch as the Alpha III soars to 1150 feet high. Once the rocket reaches its peak altitude, it will gently return to earth on its brightly colored, matching orange 12-inch parachute. 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.
