ASP Flying Model Rocket Kit Neo Standard ASP EKNST-18
A great beginner's kit! Easy to build & fly. The fin design makes attachment and alignment extra-easy! Designed with the beginner in mind, but it's also a fun sport flier for modelers of any experience level.
Features laser-cut balsa fins, plastic nose cone, quick-change engine hook & parachute recovery. Designed to fly on easy to find 18mm standard engines.
Good model to use to learn basic rocketry techniques - we think the "Neo" series of kits are perhaps our best all-around kits for the novice.
