Spotlight Review

"An Estes classic"
I've built and flown 2 Estes Wizards - the first in the current blue color scheme with the supplied stickers, and the second in the classic purple and white with custom decals. This rocket is a great flier! I pick an A8-3 or A6-4 for most flights, but my favorite motor for the Wizard is the B4-4 on calm days. I've never gotten up the nerve to try a C motor. Building the Wizard is a straight-forward affair with no surprises. Overall, a classic kit that performs great.

"Super performer!"
rbeard2 (Dayton, OH)
This rocket is one of the highest performing of the Estes kits. Introduced in 1978 (yes i remember it!) this is a small rocket that accepts 18mm engines up to the C6-7 in black powder and 18mm re-loadable RMS Aerotech engines like the D9. That being said, when achieving altitudes in the 1/4 mile or higher range, you need to add some red marking chalk to the top of the body tube so you can track it! It comes with a nice, bright, long streamer for recovery but it is so light that it can still drift significantly. An extra set of eyes and the above mentioned marking chalk will ensure you can fly your Wizard again and again!

"Perfect 1st rocket"
I built this as my first rocket many years ago. Fantastic simple design to teach the basics of rocketry!

"Great Starter"
The Wizard is a great starter rocket. I first assembled this rocket some 25 years ago in elementary school during technology class. This brought back memories that were great. Can not go wrong with this rocket. Simple but very fun to put together.


No tricks here - just the most magical, high flying model rocket in the Kingdom! The Estes Wizard is an easy to build, high performance model rocket kit that's known for casting spells on all who own it. One minute he's on the pad, then the next...poof...he's in the air!

Standing 12" tall, this trickster can reach magical heights of 1,600 feet (488 m) or more using powerful Estes rocket engines. The Wizard is a Rocket Skill Level 1 kit that includes a one piece body tube, laser cut balsa fins and a bullet-shaped plastic nose cone. The easy to apply, self-stick decals are sure to make this mystic rocket the envy of everyone at your local launch field.

The Wizard is a great high altitude rocket for beginners, schools, clubs and rocket demonstrations. Regardless if you're a beginner or pro, the Wizard promises hours of flying magic!
