Another of Klima's Heavy Duty Starter Sets
These Klima sets are step up from the lighter gauge Estes offerings. They include a stable collapsible, reclining launch pad. We add in a launch controller so this is a fully flyable set.
The Calypso, named after a smaller moon of Saturn, comes with colorful self adhesive decals stickers for the fins and large lettering for the airframe.
No painting required.
The rocket's fin can (fins and mounting) snap together without glue. Perfect alignment! You can paint the rocket, apply the stickers included or fly it just as it comes. The body tube is more beefy than Estes which mean longer life unless you hang it in a tree ;-)
Everything for six flights is included: Sturdy launch pad, launch controller, B motors, igniters, recovery wadding. Sorry no 9V battery included with this one.
Please note: dismembered hand not included!
Why not get better value from the courier carriage with additional motors (recommendations above). You'll need more ejection wadding, too!
