Estes Easy to Assemble Model Rockets

East to assemble (E2X) model rockets are not as simple to construct as Ready to Fly or Almost Ready to Fly models, which only take a few minutes to assemble, but they are designed to make it easy for the non-expert to build a flying model rocket in a relatively short period of time.

Rockets in the Estes E2X range from snap together models, like the Estes Firestreak SST that takes just minutes to assemble, to models that will require more effort and take around an a hour to construct, like the Estes Bandito.

As a general guide, Estes Easy to Assemble Model Rockets will need no special tools or paint to complete the construction, assembly will take around one hour, and no real prior modelling experience is needed at all.

The parts are already coloured and they are easy to put together. There will be some gluing with some models and you will need to apply the decals and assemble the various parts.

Unless otherwise indicated, you will also need to have the appropriate launch equipment, including launch pad, launch controller and recovery wadding, and you will need to purchase the Estes rocket engines recommended for the particular model.
