This Launch Set comes with our Neo Standard kit which we think is perhaps our best all-around kit for the novice.
Included launch system comes with an electronic launch system and a launch pad with 1/8" rod. There is also a three pack of Estes A8-3 engines and a package of recovery wadding included.
Please note: as this set contains engines we can only ship this item by ground to the Continental US and it may take longer in transit.
