The Alpha rocket from Estes has been the first rocket for millions in over 30 years of it's existence.
This easy to build, high performance rocket is the perfect model to get started with and is great for classrooms and clubs.
Simple, dependable great looks and great performance the Alpha has it all!

When a rocket has been sold to millions of model rocketeers for over three decades, there has to be a reason. With its high quality components, easy assembly and reliable performance, the Estes Alpha has become the all time leading entry level rocket! If you are brand new to rocketry, this is the place to start. The Alpha is a great introduction to sanding and painting, making it a perfect step up from one of our ready to fly plastic kits. Even if you are a master rocketeer, you will find nostalgic joy in building and launching this Estes classic! Many of our customers purchase multiple Alpha’s, and using different paint schemes, build an entire Alpha fleet. How cool is that?

Building this awesome rocket takes about an afternoon and flying is just as easy and enjoyable. When powered with a C engine, the rocket can reach cloud topping altitudes of 1000 feet. Recovery of this aerodynamic wonder is accomplished with a colorful 12 inch parachute. The Alpha is the best place to start for young rocket enthusiasts. Teachers and group leaders looking for exciting STEM (Science Technology Education Math) activities should look no further than the 12-pack bulk box to introduce students to the world of rocketry. This rocket will get any student hooked on rocketry.
