This is a pair of Estes Dragonite E2X Model Rocket Kits. The Dragonite is perfect for the first-time rocketeer. With this rocket, you can experience the thrill of building and flying your own high performance model rocket without gluing or waiting. This rocket is as much fun to put together as it is to fly! Just snap the pre-colored parts together and you're ready to fly in minutes.
High performance model rocketry that's a SNAP! The 16 inch Dragonite is the newest addition to the Estes Snaps line of model rockets. When you don't have lots of time for building and painting a rocket, this is your best bet. Snap together rockets are perfect for young, new rocketeers.
The Dragonite rocket kit literally "snaps" together in minutes with the uniquely molded plastic fin set. The precolored body tube attaches easily and the die cut decals are a breeze to apply. In just minutes you will have built your first model rocket that looks like it was made by a pro!
As easy as the Dragonite is to assemble, the main feature is the high performance flight profile which can easily reach altitudes over 1,100 feet on standard Estes engines. Recovery of your rocket after each cloud-topping flight is provided by a colorful, 12 inch preassembled parachute.
