A classic Estes kit re-imagined.
The specially designed engine mount has two molded tabs that hold the wing elevators in the flat position during boost for nice straight-up flights. Then at apogee, the ejection charge kicks the engine mount out and “snap”, the two elevators move into the full “up” position and TAZZ spins like crazy on the way down!
Slightly larger than the original “Gyroc” kit Estes produced in the 1960’s, this updated model features laser cut balsa wings with alignment tabs that fit into pre-cut slots in the body tube. This makes aligning the wings much easier during assembly and after the glue is dry, you also get a strong wing-to-tube glue joint.
The clever molded plastic retainers make installing and replacing the elevator actuator rubber bands very easy.
You can’t count the number of spins this rocket will make on the way down, but you can count on it for lots of fun flights!
