Love the Alpha
By kiteflier11 October 25, 2012
The Alpha is just one of those iconic rockets. We bought the 12 pack to share with our friends as it greatly reduces the price per rocket. We also built a few ourselves. The Alpha continues to be one of our straightest flying and stable rockets. It has a very wide motor range with a good flight on an A8-3 (perfect for small fields), a great flight on a B6-4, to an out of sight flight on a C6-5 (you may not get this one back). The box comes with 12 rocket kits, plus a bag of spare parts. The 12 chute seems a bit too large. We made our own 8 parachute and it comes down faster without any damage so far.

Awesome first rocket!
By ktoon1969 April 1, 2013
We purchased this educator pack for our scout troop. The Alpha is a rocket that I remember flying as a kid and is the perfect first rocket to teach kids about the hobby. Great flyer and recovers well. You cant go wrong getting these rockets for young people looking to learn about this fun hobby.
