A good quality flyer - quite a bit more in-air duration than the Estes Eagle pre-fab glider.
he Tercel is a great addition to any rocketeers collection. It soars to over 700 feet high and glides gently back to Earth while the booster pod recovers on a small parachute. Properly trimmed, the glider is able to soar for over a minute!
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. 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.
It's not that difficult to build with laser cut balsa parts but there is some skill required to trim it for long duration flights - hence the Skill Level 3 sticker.
