It’s a heist! The clouds are under attack! They fly on mini engines, but these three bandits are sneaky and fast and don’t let gravity hold them back.

These bandits came to fly as a team, but keeping your eye on ‘em is the real trick.

Easy to assemble gets you to the flying field quick. 3 rockets, all mini engine powered, can reach heights of 550 feet! Once the engine is depleted, these bandits float to the ground on a 6 in. parachute as if to say “you caught me”.

  1. Sine Nomine

    Great choice for kids. My wife got this for for Father’s Day to do with my daughter and we had a good time putting them together. Very basic construction but room for creativity with the stickers. Flights go well but, as others have noted, 6″ chutes don’t deploy particularly well. You could make your life easier by switching to streamers or just forget about it entirely. They’re light enough to survive without a recovery system at all.
