(Formerly Easy to Assemble)
What a winning combination with a NASA type rocket with boost gliders.
The authentic booster rocket features a jet fighter look with plenty of scale detail and aerodynamic stability. The two shuttle fighters attach to the side of the booster and represent state of the art in stealth glider technology.
After launching on Estes standard model rocket engines, this powerful rocket can soar to over 575 feet , where the fighters are deployed and can cruise for up to 200 feet. After the fighters separate, the booster floats gently down on a bright 12 inch parachute, ready for another exciting search and destroy mission!
