The Alpha, Viking and Generic E2X rockets utilize a variety of fin shapes and airframe sizes, and together these rockets are responsible for millions of successful rocket launches. They’ve been used by schools, scout groups and hobbyists to provide an engaging entry into rocketry and a clear demonstration of the scientific concepts at work.

Each of these kits are similar in complexity. These may require some light sanding, and there’s some use of adhesive, but these kits are simple and come together quite quickly. It’s about getting out to launch quickly, and with a rocket that is uniquely their own.

The AVG in the Classroom

The AVG bundle pack provides your students with multiple rockets to choose from, each with a variety of finishing options, enabling each student to make each rocket truly their own. Each of these kits is similar in complexity and have been tried and true favorites of educators for decades.

Two of these kits require you to sand and attach the fins to the body tube by the root cord, requiring some careful alignment and adhesive use, but the Generic doesn’t, giving you an easier-to-build rocket for the younger or less capable students in the group.

Each of these rockets have different drag profiles, and will all perform differently on the launch pad. Challenge your students to build the best performing rocket from the AVG Bulk Pack, and measure their success with geometry principles that allow you to calculate the altitude achieved!

Included with this kit

Customizable Airframe

Each of these kits come with decals to give you a clean, ready-made aesthetic, however each of these airframes can easily be customized and each student can make it their own!

Laser-Cut Fin Sheets (The Alpha and Viking)

All of these kits have laser-cut fin sheets so there is no cutting required, and everything comes out perfect. These are attached to the airframe by the root cord with a simple wood glue.

Plastic Fin Unit (The Generic E2X)

The Generic comes with a molded plastic fin unit, allowing for a quick installation and ensures a perfect alignment. This is what makes the Generic slightly easier to build than the Alpha and the Viking.

Recovery System

Two of these rockets utilize a streamer for recovery, making them ideal for flying in smaller fields, while the Generic E2X uses a parachute. The streamer creates some drag through the air, but the parachute makes it almost float to the ground. This bundle is great for experimenting with recovery systems and descent rates!
