Estes  The Alpha is the quintessential rocket to use to teach model rocketry! For over 36 years, the Estes Alpha has been the first rocket for millions of model rocket enthusiasts and it still is! This Estes original is the most-used rocket for schools and youth groups around the world. The Alpha’s got all you need in one sleek design, so no wonder it’s the most popular educational rocket we have!

The Alpha’s simply the best rocket, bar none, for beginners and experienced student rocketeers. It’s got everything you need – balsa wood fins, molded nose cone, engine mount, parachute recovery and self-stick decals. The Alpha is ideal for illustrating basic rocket stability principles. Besides having an aerodynamic design, it is a very reliable launcher that can use a wide variety of engines. When your students build the Awesome Alpha, they will acquire many new modeling skills and experience teamwork and safety at the launch field.

Launch the Alpha with Estes A, B or C engines. For school launches, we recommend using the A8-3 engine so students can see the entire flight profile of the rocket and most importantly, recover their rocket. To launch this rocket, you will need the Estes Electron Launch Controller and the Porta-Pad II Launch Pad that are sold separately. Your students deserve the best - the Alpha!
