Just put the rocket on the launch tube, pull back the air pressure plunger, and let go – it couldn’t be easier!

Also includes a launch angle tool that helps you turn the launch tube to the desired angle.

Works with rockets made of Precision Straws or 7/32" diameter drinking straws. No assembly required.
