Are you looking for a rocket that grabs attention at the launch field? Do you like kits requiring assembling? Then the Altair can be an excellent choice.
What is striking about this rocket is its length: 129 cm ! The fuselage is made with three high quality kraft cardboard tubes, with white surface, and the fins are made of light plywood, a material a little heavier than balsa but equally workable.
A special feature of this rocket, like all those in the EXPERT series of Klima, is its ejection gas cooling and filtering system (deflector or "baffle") that protects the parachute without the need to use flameproof wadding or sheets.
The advantage is that the protection effect is always guaranteed, while wadding can always be not enough or placed in such a way that the gases can escape and hit the parachute. In addition, the time required for preparation for a new flight is extremely short.
The assembling of this model rocket is simple, although it requires a certain familiarity with using the glues and finishing the wooden parts. The kit includes a large self-adhesive decals sheet to decorate the whole rocket.
Recovery is guaranteed by the included 40 cm plastic parachute, which is assembled by following the instructions printed directly on it.
To launch the rocket you need a launch pad with 3 mm rod, like the Klima launch pad, the Estes Astron II Launch Pad or the Estes Porta Pad II. To start the rocket you need an electric launch control like the Klima controller or Estes Astron II, and batteries. Launch pad and launch control are not included.
