This is a no-glue, no-paint, snap-together kit that anyone can build and launch all in the same day. Featuring detail-molded plastic fins, nose cone, and engine mount, this kit not only looks great but is built to survive even the roughest landings. Pre-finished in a retro atomic-age silver paint scheme, the Star Hopper is a stylish kit that looks great and flies even better!

Prep the Estes Star Hopper with a recommend Estes engine (not included) and get ready for fantastic flights up to 400', great for demonstrations and small field flights. Watch at apogee as the rocket ejects a 18" streamer to slow its fall and help you track it to the ground. With the twist-on engine retainer for fast engine loading, and a relatively wide body tube for easy ejection wadding and streamer packing, you’ll have your rocket ready to launch in no time!
