Product Description

Dr Zooch Space Shuttle

Realistic NASA flights with the shuttle including gliding the shuttle back to Earth.
10" tall,  flame fins.  
Use 18mm motors like the C6-3
Parachute recovery.
Skill Level 3
 
Salute the Return to Flight of America's Space Shuttle by building and launching your own Shuttle stack! This model flies straight and high and at the apogee of its climb, it releases its orbiter, which glides safely to the ground while the booster descends gently beneath it's own parachute while you stand below and proudly say "Gee, that shuttle didn't cost me 2.7 billion dollars." - unless of course, the bidding here on e-bay gets out of control and you have to send us a huge money order. The Space Shuttle stands ~ 10 inches tall and the orbiter is ~ 7 inches long- meaning that you will have to stand 274 feet behind the completed kit to have your picture taken with it and claim that you were standing by the real thing. The flight fins add another 3.7 inches to the stack and are removable for display. The orbiter even has a trim screw that allows you to adjust the elevator to get that perfect glide, or to get a realistic Shuttle approach angle which will be so frightening that you'll immediately set it back to a perfect glide. It flies on 18mm "B"s and "C"s and does it's best stuff on a C6-3. We have solved the stability problems of the OOP Estes 1284 shuttle kit here- so our flies up rather than sideways. The kit is fairly complex, however, and not intended for the first time builder or someone who is tasteless enough to buy those blister-packed buy-it-and-fly-it kits. Average skill level model builders can get this one going and above average skill level builders will have tons of fun making fun of the lesser skilled model builders. Just because it's a cruel world and that's the way things go but even they too will be able to make this one look real.
