The Apprentice starter set has everything you need to launch your first rocket, including the launch equipment, engines, and an easy-to-assemble rocket model. You just need to provide building supplies like glue, and the four AA-size batteries for the launch controller.
But what makes this a unique starter set is that we are including a FREE video-book disk that shows you how to properly launch your new model rocket. It takes you through the process by letting you watch an expert build and fly a model rocket. It virtually guarantees launch success.
It goes a lot further than just your first launch though. It will teach you how to build simple model rockets, so you’ll be ready for your follow-on launches too. We are including this video book because we want you to have a safe and trouble-free experience when launching rockets.
The Apprentice rocket kit is comes with a plastic nose cone and fin unit. The bright color make the rocket easy to find if it lands in tall grass. The Apprentice rocket is a breeze to assemble thanks to the plastic fin unit. It goes together in about 20 minutes.
However, this is not a shake-it-out-of-the-bag rocket. Your child will experience a sense of accomplishment by actually building his/her own rocket. It is something “they” build, that actually does fly high and fast. And because of the way the fins attach the rocket will fly straight-and-true every single time. It is also a rugged model, so it can be launched again and again.
This is one of the largest starter models available at 16″ (40.64 cm) long and 1″ (25mm) in diameter. This is important for two reasons. First, the model is easy to handle by younger kids. And second, the large size makes it fly slower, which means it is easier to see when it is launched. Many smaller rockets will rip off the launch pad so quickly that they seem to vaporize into the air. This rocket is nice and slow, so kids can follow it all the way into the air.
