The Rockets Estes 1263 Sky Twister Model Kit adds a new "twist" to model rocketry. At apogee, its nosecone separates from the body tube and spins back to earth on three helicopters blades while the body tube returns safely under a colorful 12" parachute. Completed Rocket can fly up to 650 feet with largest allowable engine (C6-5) and can be used over and over again.
This is a Skill Level E2X (Easy to Assemble) kit so minimal assembly is required but painting is not necessary. The fins and nose cone are plastic and self stick decals are included. Completed kit measures 19.3" tall x .1.35" diameter. Weight (without engine) is 2.9 oz.
Needs the following to fly (sold separately):
Estes model rocketry is recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12.
