Are you confused by the number of different rocket launch sets available? Are you looking for a gift to a young enthusiast who is just starting with model rocketry?
Then, the Wild Flyer can be your choice.
It is a complete Launch Set, which means it includes a rocket, a launch pad and a launch controller, and it's very easy to build. You will spend less time building and more time flying.
The rocket body is made of the usual high quality Estes cardboard tube, strong and light. This one has a difference, though: the surface is opalescent white. This means you don't need to paint the rocket. You will get a super result even without a drop of paint, also because the nose cone and fins are made of colored plastic. You will get two black fins and one orange one. With the self adhesive decals included the rocket will look beautiful after not much more than an hour.
The launch pad included is the Astron II Launch Pad, very simple but effective. As this pad cannot be tilted against the wind, we suggest to clamp a clothespin under one of the legs with which you can easily tilt the pad.
The Astron Launch Controller included is also simple but perfect for this kind of rockets. It requires a 9V battery (not included).
The rocket is recovered by a colorful plastic parachute of 30 cm. Finally, the rocket uses standard 18 mm motors of types A, B and C.
To fly this rocket you need the motors (choose among the recommended motors above), a bag of flameproof wadding, some glue for plastic and a battery.
