A model rocket kit includes reusable parts, and requires launching equipment and single-use launching supplies. These kits are recommended for children 10 years and older, with adult supervision advised to age 12. Rocket kit assembly encompasses a range of skill levels—from Easy-to-Assemble (E2X), requiring only simple gluing and less than an hour of time—to Level 5, requiring multi-step assembly with measuring, cutting, gluing, and painting tasks. Reusable rocket kit components include a cone, a body tube, and a recovery parachute. A rocket engine, a starter, and recovery wadding are used once. Rocket engines come in a variety of sizes, time delays, and burn durations. A "first-flight" engine recommendation is generally made for each rocket kit. A launch pad has a stable base and a vertical rod that provide vertical stability during initial liftoff. A launch controller has a keyed ignition switch to prevent accidental ignition, and a cable provides a safe distance from the rocket during launch. Bulk packs of model rocket kits are available for clubs and schools, and allow groups of children to experience building and launching a rocket.

Estes manufactures model rocket kits, launching equipment, and rocket engines. The company, founded in 1958, is headquartered in Penrose, CO.

3, 2, 1, Lift Off!
The Taser Launch Set from Estes is an exciting, radically designed, high altitude rocket launch set from the E2X (Easy to Assemble) series. The rocket kit features a brightly colored one piece body tube, molded plastic fin set and bullet shaped nose cone. The Taser rocket is 16.5 inches tall. 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. A bright-colored 12 inch preassembled parachute returns this rocket back to the launch site. It also comes with an Estes launch pad and launch controller for your rocket launching convenience (four 'AA' alkaline batteries required – sold separately). Adding to your growing fleet of Rockets? Check out another high powered Estes Classic, the impressive Blue Ninja E2X Model Rocket Kit, which uses the same launch system that comes complete with the Taser!

Blast Off to Learning Fun
In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. As a part of the E2X series, the Taser can be assembled in about one hour. No special tools or painting are required for this kit, leaving more time for flying. Simply glue the parts together according to the instructions, apply decals and attach the parachute. The Taser is a reliable, high performance rocket for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Mission Control
The Taser requires Estes engines for the launch (not included). Start with the A8-3 engine for the first flight. Use Estes engines B4-4, B6-4, B6-6, C6-5 or C6-7 for subsequent flights. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters, recovery wadding and four 'AA' alkaline batteries are required – sold separately unless otherwise specified. Read all instructions before beginning. Make sure you have all parts and supplies required. Test fit all parts before applying glue. Sand as necessary for precision assembly. Product color and shape may vary. When launching, stand back as far as the launch controller cord will allow (15 feet). Rocketry is not intended for indoor use. Choose a large field (500 feet), free of dry weeds and brown grass. Launch only with little or no wind and good visibility.

Lowest used price: $11.57
List price: $19.57
Brand: Pitsco
Model: BG36685

The Pitsco 36685 GT-FX wheel is a narrow wheel with six spokes, made of lightweight injection-molded polyethylene plastic, and can be used as the front wheel on many model car designs. The lightweight polyethylene wheel reduces mass and increases the speed of the car, while the narrow tire width reduces friction during a race. The wheel fits a 1/8-inch diameter axle. Its design mimics the look of real dragster wheels, but can be used on any model car design. The GT-FX is a good choice for a shell dragster with internal wheels because the axle hole extends all the way through the wheel. The wheel is made in Pittsburg, Kansas. A wheel is typically used in an educational setting when building model cars or dragsters to study aerodynamics and physics.
