Do you have a child who dreams of being a pilot someday? Are you a child at heart who loves watching your model airplanes fly? There's just something about taking a model airplane to the park on a nice day and watching it soar above other parkgoers. You don't need expensive model kits and lots of tools to make your dream of becoming an airplane model hobbyist come true. Whether you're fostering the dreams of a young teen or simply picking up a new hobby for yourself, you'll love the UGears Flight Starter. It comes with everything you need to get started in a single afternoon!
Functionality is important to UGears, and the evidence is in this Flight Starter. The mechanical launcher, which works best with light airplane models, features a unique design that was created using high-quality, sustainable plywood. Ergonomics ensure the launcher fits comfortably in your hand and makes it easy for you to launch with complete precision. A motor powered by a rubber band creates the tension that thrusts the plane into the air, and a winding crank allows you to choose how far your plane will fly. Depending on your preferences, planes launched with this flight kit can go as far as 30 meters or even further. Do you want your planes to perform mid-air tricks? Change the angle of the launch to create loops, rolls, and more entertaining maneuvers. The launcher takes about three hours to put together and is an easy project for inexperienced and experienced plane lovers alike. A safety mechanism on the trigger ensures you never launch until you're ready.
The Ugears Flight Starter is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional. Created with the company's traditional skeletal steampunk style, the launcher features plenty of room to look inside and watch every moving part work as you send off your planes. If you love science-fiction movies, you'll love this launcher. Resembling a space gun, it looks like something straight out of an alien-fighting movie!
The UGears Flight Starter kit includes everything you need to create your launcher, as well as one plywood glider plane and two paper airplanes. You can also build your own lightweight airplanes to use with the launcher, which works best with planes made of paper, cardboard, balsa wood, and other light materials. The full kit includes 198 pieces, as well as easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions with a full-color manual. Instructions are available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, and six other languages. This flight kit does not require glue or special tools to put it together, making it perfect for newbie hobbyists who are simply trying their hand at building models. Each of the precut pieces is made of sustainable wood and fit together like puzzle pieces. This kit is recommended for ages 14 and older.
