Cool little missile that gets high on cheap motors
A LAND shark is a model rocket that doesn't actually make it into the air but slides along the ground in any old direction it wants to. This is a BAD shark. A Sky Shark, OTOH, is a good shark!
With pre-painted body tube and self-coloured fins, this model rocket won't keep you inside long - just long enough for the glue to dry! No painting required and the self stick decals complete the decorative task.The bright colours are a big help if the grass is tall,
This finny vehicle takes mini T motors which come four to the pack for the same money as bigger (18mm) A motors that only have three in a pack. A bargain to fly with a range of power to suit almost any flying field.

The weakest link in any standard rocket kit is the recovery system. Estes standard components are built to a low price, not a high level of durability. To be sure you get your rocket back we recommend Starter Set Upgrade Kits, an economical version of our Recovery Upgrade Kits that addresses the standard recovery components' short comings and is a bit kinder on the environment, too.

Our full-on Recovery Upgrade Kits provide the highest level of durability. They are principally for rocket builders that value the time and skill they put into their birds. That's not to say that failing to get back a beloved Starter Set rocket is any less traumatic (especially if child disappointment is involved). For more information click HERE
