The Astra III Classroom Value Pack of 25 rockets are perfect for schools, camps, clubs and youth group programs including the Civil Air Patrol, 4H, Starbase and Scouting’s Space Exploration Merit Badge requirements.
Bright, bold and rugged, the Astra III is one of our bestselling rockets. Part of our Quick-Kit family, it features a unique plastic fin-can assembly. It is a great kit for groups who have already built one of our Skill Level 1 rockets with a one-piece molded fin-unit like the Viper. It requires a little more skill to assemble, as individual fins are fitted and glued into the center fin-can unit, but still goes together very easy and fast.
Quest Skill Level 1 Quick-Kits do not require painting or finishing beyond the application of self-adhesive decals and can usually be completed in 45 to 90 minutes or less.
This kit requires assembly. Hobby glues, finishing supplies, building tools, launch system and rocket motors for launching are not included.
Launch supplies sold separately. Requires Complete Launch System (Q7700), Quest Q-Jet™ rocket motors with FirstFire Micro™ Initiators and Recovery Wadding. One 9-volt, snap-top, Lithium battery is required for the Q2 Launch Controller - Not Included.
This kit is also available individually (Q1610) and in Value Packs of 12 rockets (Q5495).
Recommended for ages 10 to adult. Direct adult supervision is suggested for those under 12 years of age when building or flying model rockets.
