Just a fun Launch Set!
- Easy to Assemble
- Flies up to 1,150 feet
- Launch system included
I got this and built the sky dart soon after. In spring I launched it and then built the far side the same day. One thing I like is that it is a good price. You get a launch pad, controller, and two rockets for $30.

I absolutely love the Solar Scouts. They are very easy to build and even more fun to fly because of how high they go.

We purchased this set to augment our 4H rocket program. The Astron II controller and launch pad go together quickly and also disassemble easily for compact storage and transport. This launch system is reliable and easy to use. The Farside rocket went together easily and came in at 46grams or 1.6oz dry weight(no engine or wadding) and flies great. The Sky Dart body tube was squished in two places and has not been assembled. The nose cone will need to be sanded down considerably to allow it to enter the body tube.

This was the first set I got. The rockets were easy to put together and they flew great. The second time we launched them, though, we didn't put in enough wadding. The parachute on the Farside burnt off and fell to the ground, but it survived. The yellow rocket fell to the ground face first and broke in half. All in all, though they are a lot of fun.

This is what got me going on rockets. This was my first set, and they flew beautifully. Eventually, the sky dart boomed, and I lost the farside.

This is the birthday present I got my nephew that drew me into rocketry, even though we lost both rockets on the first launch (Little did I know our field was too small) we had such a blast that more rockets were purchase, I joined the NAR and am now High power level 1 certified.

These rockets were fun to build. The first launch the farside went pretty high the seconded one went so high it looked like a little spec. This is a perfect launch set for a beginner or starter.
