Sky Launcher Rubber Band Powered Airplane

Sky Launcher Rubber Band Powered Airplane

Sky Launcher - nifty little balsa rubber band powered airplane. Fun little balsa wood plane to fly
Wing Span: 17 Inches
Min. Age: 10

An "Action" motorplane for hours of flying fun! A new "twist" on the balsa airplane market. A 17 inch wingspan plane with a spectacular action feature - it releases a parachutist or glider while in flight, then glides back to the ground. Both the parachutist and the glider are included with the airplane.

Rubber band powered balsa wood airplanes are a kid's favorite toy! Simple to build and fun to fly, the rubber band motors require no batteries or fuel. Just wind up the rubber band and give the Sky Launcher a toss and it rides the wind.

Rubber band powered balsa wood airplanes are great teaching tools, too. Simple to construct, the planes can be used to teach the basic parts of an airplane as the students put it together. The rubber band powered prop can be used to give a simple demonstration of thrust and how it affects the airplane. Organize competitions to see who can fly the fastest or most distance. Encourage simple modifications to the plane to see if flight is improved or worsened.

Simple experiments can be peformed with the Sky Launcher balsa wood airplane to teach avaion's basic prinicples. Moisten the wing flaps and bend gently to test the effect on flight. The same thing can be done to the rudder and aileron to test the effects here.

The Sky Launcher is a great companion to keep kids, young and old, occupied on trips to the park, the beach, sporting events and other outdoor activities. They are wonderful backyard toys also!

For education or just plane fun, the rubber band powered balsa wood plane is hard to beat. Simple to construct and easy to fly the Sky Launcher is sure to please teachers, students, parents and kids. And they will bring a smile to Grandad's face as he remembers the fun he had flying one of these toy airplanes with his grandad!
