Description

Journey Deluxe set with everything you need including the motors!

With the Journey model rocket kit there is no painting, no waiting! With our Deluxe Journey set you can be into the air within an hour of ripping off the wrapping paper! Fly it three times before needing more motors. 

Getting started in rocketry couldn't be easier... the rocket is rugged, pre-assembled and colourful ready for launch. The Journey can undertake many repeated missions as long as you take care of the rather fragile recovery system by using LOTS of wadding. We toss in some wadding to get you going.

Punch a hole in the atmosphere with the Journey Launch Set! This Estes rocket launcher contains almost everything you need for hours of high-flying fun. This no-assembly, shiny beauty is crafted by specially-trained artisans to give you a top-quality beginners’ rocket. The Riptide at 18 inches tall is an aerodynamic bullet full of features like:

  • Coloured body tube and fins
  • Plastic ready to go fins
  • 19 inches or 49cm tall
  • Easy to assemble, ready to go very quickly
  • Included 3-pack of A8-3 Rocket motors (Most Journey starter sets don't include motors like ours!)
  • Included sufficient suitable wadding for 3 initial flights to protect your parachute (essential).
  • Batteries for launch controller included too!

The Journey rocket assembles in just minutes and requires Estes engines for the launch. Start with A8-3 engine for the first flight. Then, you can progress to more powerful engines as you gain experience.

This set can reach cloud topping heights of 1100ft (335m) on Estes C6-7  engine using the Estes launch pad and launch controller. With all the parts you need for your launch included, just add the engines and you'll be ready for the launch site in less than an hour.  Requirements for this E2X Journey Launch Set, which are sold separately, includes –

  • Building Tools and Construction Materials
  • Finishing Supplies
  • Estes A, B or C Engines

Note: If you want to get seriously fast and high, you can plug in Klima 18mm D9-7s and double the altitude or more because Klima motors are lighter than the Estes BP ones as well as being twice as strong as a C motor, too.

Aside from the excitement and entertainment the Journey Launch Set provides, an easy-to-assemble rocket instantly draws people in since the launch happens fast. Any rocket set from Estes, teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics. And with an easy-to-assemble beginner rocket like the Journey, kids of all ages get instantly encouraged to think about how rockets work and fly it themselves. One of our most popular kits of all time!
