The Viper model rocket combines the simplicity of a single piece fin-unit with the added complexity of parachute recovery. The Viper model rocket provides the perfect combination of a challenge and precision flight. One-piece plastic fin-unit simply slides into position on the body tube. Color coded parts make group building sessions much easier for an adult leader. One of our all-time group favorites! This kit does not require painting and colors of the nose cone and fin-unit may be different than shown in the image.
