The Red Rider is a "launch set", a package that contains a model rocket, a launch pad and a launch controller, that is, the equipment needed to start this hobby.
This is an ideal rocket if you do not want to spend a lot of time in building because it is almost ready to fly. The body tube is already decorated and colored and does not require painting, the block which joins the fins is already mounted on the body tube and the fins are made of plastic. To mount the fins you simply have to insert their tabs into the slots of the connecting block and secure them with a drop of cyano glue.
To complete the model simply connect the pre-assembled parachute to the shock cord which is already attached to the rocket body. Within minutes you'll be ready to launch!
The motor is secured with a practical screw lock that allows a very rapid change after each flight.
The nose cone is made of plastic with a ondulated surface, the fuselage is made of Estes usual kraft paperboard tube, rugged and lightweight, and the whole rocket is designed so as to withstand impact even in the case of non-ideal landings.
The launch pad and the launch command are of the standard type, with a 3 mm rod, and are suitable for any other rocket that uses type A, B or C motors, of any brand.
The Red Rider flies with standard 18 mm type B and C engines, either Estes or Klima. Motors, igniters and battery are not included.
