Double your flying fun with this launch set! The Estes Solar Scouts Launch Set is a two rocket combo set with superb high altitude performance. These really cool rockets are from the E2X (Easy to Assemble) series which means less time spent building and a lot more time for flying! The Estes Solar Scouts Launch Set is a great value with incredible high flying performance in a complete package.

At 16.5 inches in length, the Farside rocket delivers cloud punching 1100 foot flights, but is easily recovered on its colorful 12 inch parachute. The Farside is easy to assemble and can be ready for streaking fast rocket launches in about an hour.

The second rocket included is one of our most colorful and highest performing mini rockets. The 10.3 inch Sky Dart is pencil thin, but deliver's the kind of ballistic, space busting flights that make flying model rockets so much fun! Powered by our economical mini engines, the Sky Dart can easily reach altitudes of 800 to 900 feet. Recovery is by a bright orange streamer that can be seen easily after each exciting launch.

Launch Sets are a great way to get started in model rocketry! They include a rocket (or two), versatile launch pad and reliable launch controller. Plus, you get to choose what Estes rocket engine(s) you'd like to use to launch your new rocket(s) by purchasing them separately.
