Estes Rockets


estes logoIt's almost impossible to be involved in the hobby of rocketry and not know the name Estes. Estes Industries was founded in 1958 in Denver, Colorado. Vern Estes developed a machine that mass-produced solid propellant model rocket engines.

This invention gave people a consistent and reliable way to launch model rockets. Later, the company branched out into the mass production of balsa nose cones and adapters for model rockets. Estes® began selling model rockets by mail in 1960.

The company was moved in 1961 to a 77-acre tract of land on the outskirts of Penrose, Colorado. Rapid growth followed and soon Penrose becaSaturn Ready to Flyme known as the “Model Rocket Capital of the World”. Estes Industries has grown to be the leading manufacturer of model rocket kits, engines and accessories in the world.

As of April 2018 they have new owners and are once again a family owned business. The Langford Family are longtime model rocket enthusiasts and bring an exciting era of new ideas and management to the company.

Estes carries an amazing assortment of kits, from very very beginner to extremely detailed scale models. If you haven't checked out Estes lately, you need to. The challenge and excitement are still there.
