Bright, bold and rugged, the Astra III is one of our best selling rockets. Part of our QUICK KIT family it features a unique all molded plastic fin can assembly. It is a great kit for groups who have already built one of our skill level one rockets with a one-piece molded fin unit like the Viper. It requires a little more skill to assemble, but still goes together easy enough. In a group building session, Astra III can be built in about 45 minutes.
Uses Q-Jet A3-4, B4-4, C12-4, C12-6, D16-6, D16-8 model rocket motors. It can also be flown with Estes A8-3, B6-4 and C6-5 rocket motors.
Compare to Estes E2X rocket kits such as No. 1262 Cosmic Cobra and No. 2168 Metalizer.
