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. The Astra III rocket features a Kevlar/elastic shock cord system, quick-release motor mount, self-adhesive decals and 14 inch recovery parachute.
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 30 to 45 minutes or less.
This kit requires assembly. Hobby glues, finishing supplies, building tools, launch system and rocket motors for launching are not included.
Uses Quest Q-Jet™ White Lightning™: B6-4W, C18-6W, C18-8W, D20-6W, D20-8W rocket motors.
