Blast Off to Learning Fun
In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. As a part of the RTF series, the Riptide can be assembled in just minutes. No special tools or painting are required for this kit, leaving more time for flying. The Riptide is a reliable, high performance rocket for kids of all ages to enjoy.
The Riptide requires Estes engines for the launch (not included). Start with the B4-4 engine for the first flight. Use Estes engines B6-4 or C6-5 for subsequent flights. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters, recovery wadding and four 'AA' alkaline batteries are required – sold separately unless otherwise specified. Read all instructions before beginning. Make sure you have all parts and supplies required. Test fit all parts before applying glue. Sand as necessary for precision assembly. Product color and shape may vary. When launching, stand back as far as the launch controller cord will allow (15 feet). Rocketry is not intended for indoor use. Choose a large field (500 feet), free of dry weeds and brown grass. Launch only with little or no wind and good visibility.

The included launch pad is not as advertised. I ordered this kit because of the pad. Beware of this kit. I would have ordered another kit if I had known.Published 4 months ago by Lee Bagwell
