Description

For those interested in getting started in model rocketry, this is a perfect introduction. For less than $25, shipped, you will have 3 ready-to-fly rockets, 4 engines and igniters, a small launch pad, and a launch control system (an energy source to spark the igniter). The only thing else you need will be 4xAA batteries, and recovery system waddding. The wadding is simply flame resistant paper, and there is a tip in the video on how to get it super cheap (a lifetime supply for the casual hobbyist). These are small rockets, but they should still achieve about 400-450 feet with these engines. It's a great way to step your toes into this without spending a lot. If you decide you enjoy model rocketry you can build bigger rockets and a launch pad, but these small ones will always be easy and fun.
