This is the Maxi Alpha 3 Model Rocket Kit from Estes, for ages 10 and older. Model Rocket enthusiasts will salute this red, white and blue Estes Rocket. Back by popular demand, the Estes team has returned this flying favorite to the Estes Model Rocket fleet.
Watch this patriotic Rocket blast off utilizing D & E Engine power. The Maxi Alpha 3 runs on the D12-3, E9-4 or E9-6 Estes Engines. Once Your Estes Maxi Alpha 3 reaches a maximum altitude of 700 feet (213 m) the Estes Parachute will deploy and slowly return the Rocket for a safe recovery. Re-pack the parachute, load in some Recovery Wadding, slip in a new Estes Engine and get ready for another exciting Estes Model Rocket launch
