Mfg. Description: The Sprint features a large upper body tube with a reverse transition to a smaller lower body tube.
A large parachute can be packed into the large upper body tube for long parachute duration flights.
The effect of base drag can be studied with this model and compared to a model like the Nova. Flight testing can be fun.
As with all Flight Systems Inc kits, only the best of materials are used. The fins are cut from tough birch plywood (3 ply). The shock cord is covered with a heat resistant cover. The nose cone has the proper weight to keep the center of gravity forward for true stabilized flight. Body tubes are easy to glue fins onto and will paint and finish to look like metal.
