Description Double the flying fun with this 2 rocket Launch Set! The Estes Solar Scouts Launch Set is a two rocket combo set with superb high altitude performance in a complete, almost ready to fly package. At 419m tall, Farside delivers cloud punching 1,100 foot flights, but is easily recovered on its colourful 30.5cm parachute. Farside is easy to assemble and can be ready for streaking fast rocket launches in about an hour. The second Solar Scout is one of Estes' most colourful and highest performing mini rockets, Sky Dart. Standing pencil thin and 260mm tall, Sky Dart deliver's the kind of ballistic, space busting flights that make flying model rockets so much fun! Powered with economical, space saving Estes mini motors, Sky Dart can easily reach altitudes of over 900 feet. Recovery is by super bright neon orange coloured streamer. Like Farside, Sky Dart can be launch ready in around an hour! Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly.

Estes Solar Scouts represent great value and incredible high flying performance in a complete package.

LAUNCH SYSTEM includes Astron II Launch Controller and Astron II Launch Pad.
Please Note requires rocket motors, igniters and recovery wadding and a 9v battery to operate (Not Included).

Solar Scouts (Farside/Sky Dart) requires rocket motors, igniters and recovery wadding to operate.
