- Key Features
Mars may be tough, but the Estes Destination Mars Colonizer Starter Set isn’t. The Beginner-Level Colonizer kit goes together quickly – no cutting, sanding, or painting required! All rocket parts, from the detail molded nosecone, to the realistic landing struts are pre-finished and ready to install – all you need is a little glue (included)! Even the body tube comes pre-wrapped with an intricate, full color, custom printed graphic. This is a model that everyone will notice! Comes equipped with great functional details, too, like the threaded engine mount and large, 18-inch Estes parachute. It’s hard to find a cooler easy-to assemble rocket than the Mars Colonizer!
But this is so much more than just a great looking rocket! The Estes starter set includes everything you need to launch your Mars Colonizer on its own simulated mission to the red planet. Set up the Porta-Pad II Launch Pad and prep your rocket for flight with an included Estes C6-3 engine, a model rocket starter, engine plug, and recovery wadding. Carefully connect the leads from the Electron Beam Launch Controller to the starter, step back a safe distance, and you’re ready for countdown and liftoff! Create your own missions and explore the sky and beyond…Mars is waiting for you!
Estes model rocketry is recommended for boys and girls ages 10+ with adult supervision for those under 12, and rocketeers of all ages.
