The Ghost Chaser is a model rocket kit with a transparent cargo section to take your favorite small cargoes up high.
The Ghost Chaser is a deceptively simple rocket model that contains many interesting features. Designed as a beginner's kit, this model is quickly and easily assembled even by those with no previous experience.
In no time you will have a finished Ghost Chaser nearly 60 cm tall with a silvery white fuselage and 12 cm long clear payload section. An elegant transition separates the two tubes, reducing the rocket body from a standard 18mm BT20 to a slim 13mm BT5. The translucent blue fins almost seem to glow when the light hits them.
All components of the Ghost Chaser are pre-finished, no sanding or painting required. A clever system of slots, tabs and clips (and a tightly knotted bungee cord) holds this simple, uncomplicated pattern together without a drop of glue.
The decoration is made with a rich set of decals, included.
Launching Ghost Chaser is as simple as building. The threaded motor retainer makes loading and replacing motors a breeze. The rocket flies with a range of Estes or Klima engines from A to C, so you have all possible options for various launch field sizes and wind conditions.
The recovery is by means of the 30 cm parachute included.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, fine sandpaper, carpenter’s glue, plastic cement, hobby knife, masking tape, primer, paint. (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)
