More info

A truly unusual rocket: the Neon Tiger flies like a traditional rocket model, but carries a particular type of "ring" glider, which takes the place of two fins. Once reached the maximum height the glider releases and glides gently towards the ground. Its unusual cylindrical shape does not suggest a glider and instead such an object flies, and also very well!

Once the ring glider has been released, the carrier rocket returns to the ground thanks to its included 38 cm parachute.

The construction is really simple, you don't even need to paint the rocket because the body is already painted and the fins are in green plastic, interlocking. So the alignment will be perfect!

You can fly the Neon Tiger with Estes or Klima type B and C engines.

  • All the parts that make up the rocket model
  • 38 cm pre-assembled plastic parachute
