For the SERIOUS beginner that wants to progress to bigger and more powerful rockets.
The three fin design has an accurate and easy to construct NO GLUE "fin can" that virtually guarantees straight flights for this model rocket kit. Sticky back decals and self coloured nose and fins mean that there's no need to paint Mira.
Included in this set is the rugged Klima Air Launcher, their Air Launch Controller, six motors, wadding, 9v PP3 battery and, oh, yeah, an easy to build slender Mira rocket that can see you at the launch field just as soon as the glue is dry!
The Estes starter/launch sets are great fun for beginners that want to have a go. This Klima set, however, gives you a top class set of ground support equipment that is capable of going well beyond A/B/C or even D powered rockets.
The Mira set's pistol grip Air Launch Controller and Launch Pad need special mention. For the higher power requirements of mid or high power rockets, you can add a second 9v PP3 battery to the controller.
The wide stance pad can be upgraded with a 6mm rod that is capable of launching D, E or F power motors. You can go even bigger with the rail assembly. All of this is way beyond the capabilities of Estes Astron equipment.
