A super FUN Launch Set!
- Helicopter Nosecone Recovery
- Cool Cat Decals
I have "3" of these. One stock, and two bashed together as a two stage model. Flys great in both configurations.

Bought this for my 10 yr old son. We loaded the C6-5 for the third launch, where it drifted past the tree line on the horizon, we never saw it again. Going to cut a hole in the parachute next time.

The Alpha III is a great E2X kit. The only change I made to mine was to paint the launch lug black so that it didn't stand out so much. I love the classic lines and the ease of construction.

Thank you, my boy may technically be a little young for model rockets per the recommendations, but he helped build this rocket and put all the pieces together. We finally got a good day to take the rocket out and launch it. He had a great time and was all excited when it landed not too far away on the A8-3 rocket. Final launch of the day was a C6-7. Leaned the launch into the wind and up range slightly. We were lucky to get it back as it drifted down range about 1/4 mile away. The C6-7 really launched it up there. Great fun to build and easy to build with my big guy. Looking forward to building more with him over time. I bought 6 more rockets to slowly give to him over time.

Really easy to assemble. Do not use a HOT GLUE gun, I lost my nose cone as it drifted away without the fuselage. As far as flight is concerned it flew up there like it was no mans business. I would highly recommend this as a perfect rocket for those wanting to star modeling/putting rockets together. Good Job Estes.

I remember my brother having this rocket so decided to get it. I didn't like the "new" color design so I painted it like the red, white, and black 80's version. A classic rocket that should be in everyone's collection.

This makes a great addition to the "Alpha" collection. Easy to assemble and flies really high.

It takes a little while to assemble but its fun when you shoot it off. :-)

This is a great rocket but when you launch it make sure (1) You have a VERY open space and (2) there is very little wind! Otherwise you might spend lots of time looking for your rocket!
