RED RIVER ROCKETRY Model #K-003
Quarc is a great two-stage model designed for fun! If you’ve
never flown a two-stage rocket before you’re in for a treat! The
payload compartment is big enough to loft your small altimeter
or insect-onaut. Quarc comes with a durable streamer, so those
high altitude flights don’t mean a long-duration walk!
