Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Mini Tercel Boost Glider 3222
The Tercel boost glider uses a high efficient elliptical plan form wing for outstanding glide performance. After a straight vertical boost to altitude the glider separates from the engine pod. While the pod descends under it's own 6" parachute the glider is free to roam the skies for a typical 60 second flight. As a bonus, a special wire stand off is included in each kit to hold the igniter clips in place for a worry free launch.
