Taser Starter Set

Description

The Taser Launch Set from Estes is an exciting, radically designed high altitude rocket launch set that is easy to build. The rocket kit features a brightly colored one piece body tube, molded plastic fin set and bullet shaped nose cone. Simply glue a few rocket pieces together, apply the colorful self-stick decals and in less than an hour you’ll be ready for the launch pad!

The Taser rocket is 17 inches tall. With its custom three-fin design, it climbs to an outta sight altitude of over 1,100 feet. A bright-colored 12 inch parachute returns this rocket back to the launch site. You’ll be ready in minutes for another extreme launch experience!
