Sky Dart

Estes Model #3229

Description

The Estes Skydart is classic design from rocketry’s heyday. Designed by Larry Renger, the Skydart provides both sexy, good looks and great performance. It’s a boost-glider that launches vertically and then ejects a ‘power pod’ at apogee. The power pod returns via parachute and the glider circles down for a gentle landing. I had built the Skydart kit in my youth but lack of age and experience
