In 30 minutes or less, budding rocketeers can snap together the plastic fin unit, cut out the gliders, and assemble the parachute. After the launch, the rocket returns to earth on its 15 inch parachute while the gliders tumble gently back down to the ground.
The Double Ringer, named after its unique gliders, is an easy-to-build rocket. Just one step above beginner, kids can start to build their own rockets with snap together plastic parts. Once the fin unit is together and the main rocket is intact, a pair of scissors and a bit of glue is all that is needed to ready this rocket for the launch field.
Using an Estes Porta-Pad II launch system and powered by a C6-3 engine (both sold separately), this two-foot tall rocket can reach 500 feet in the air. Kids can easily retrieve the bright orange and yellow rocket parts and race back to the launch site for additional flights (and fun!).
Scissors, ruler, sandpaper, masking tape, clear tape, plastic cement. Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.
Estes Porta-Pad II launch pad with launch controller, Estes model rocket engines, recovery wadding and four 1.5V high-quality AA alkaline batteries (not included).
