Big (over 2 1/2 feet tall!), easy to build model! Makes a great first or second rocket kit! Designed with the beginner in mind and as a model to help learn basic rocketry skills, this kit also a great sport flier for modelers of any experience level.
Features balsa fins (that you cut yourself, a good skill to learn!) and nose cone, payload section (big enough to hold many commercial electronics), quick change engine hook and bright parachute recovery. Designed to fly primarily on 24 mm engines, it can also fly on 18 mm engines with an adapter (not included).

Great model to learn basic rocketry construction. Perfect for school or scout groups - bulk packaging available. For the discounted quantities of 6 or more the kits are provided in bulk form with a single set of instructions (which may be photocopied if desired for each modeler). Parts for the kits are provided in bulk packing which you then distribute to the modellers, some items (shock cords, shroud lines, etc.) may also require cutting to length - see the "
Additional Instructions/Notes for Teachers/Group Leaders" link below for more details. Kits do not come individually bagged at the discounted bulk prices.
