Pollux is another kit in the EXPERT series of Klima production, very easy to assemble and great to fly. If you are looking for a long, slanted rocket which grabs the attention on the flying field and it is a breeze to build, then the Pollux is the one for you.
The fuselage is made with three high quality kraft cardboard tubes, with white surface, and the fins and their fincan are made of plastic. The fins slides into the fincan slots which guarantees a precise alignment with no effort.
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 extremely quick, thanks to its plastic fincan. Fins can be glued with a bit of glue, but it is often not necessary because the slots are so precise to hold the fins in its place by friction only. The kit is completed by a large self-adhesive decals sheet for decoration.
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.
