Estes model rockets range from “ready-to-fly” in just minutes, to kits that provide many enjoyable hours of building fun.
Estes kits are classified into five categories.
READY TO FLY (RTF): No paint, glue or modeling skills required. Rocket comes assembled and is ready for liftoff in just minutes.
E2X: No paint or special tools needed. E2X kits contain parts that are colored and easy to assemble. Simply glue the parts together as per the instructions, apply the self-adhesive decals, attach the recovery system and you are ready to blast off! Assembly takes 1 hour or less.
SKILL LEVEL 1: Requires some painting, gluing and sanding. Features laser-cut balsa fins, slotted body tubes, plastic nose cones and self-adhesive decals. Step by step instructions make building very easy. Assembly takes at least an afternoon.
SKILL LEVEL 2: First tier of more advanced kits. Requires beginner skills in model rocket construction and finishing. Features laser-cut balsa or plastic fins, plastic nose cones and unfinished body tubes. Assembly may take a complete day.
SKILL LEVEL 3: Second tier of more advanced kits. Requires moderate skills in model rocket construction and finishing. Features multiple laser-cut balsa fins and parts, unfinished body tubes, complex designs and plastic nose cones. Assembly may take a couple of days.
