  • Gryphon Model Rocket Kit  - Estes 7280

Skill Level 2 - Advanced  -

Meeting all expectations set by its legendary name, the Gryphon model glider kit will be the “King of the Air”. The Gryphon itself can soar to the height of 700 feet on an A10-3T engine. Upon reaching apogee, a colorful streamer acts as a tracking and recovery device to show where the rocket will land. During that time, the Gryphon’s stealthy glider moves magically across the sky to serve as a protector to everything below and will also gracefully return to earth to be readied for another flight.

Made from lightweight paper tubing and laser-cut balsa, the Gryphon is a great first step above a beginner rocket. In about two hours, plus painting time, rocketeers will build a rocket that will garner attention in both the air and when on display.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, wax paper, fine sandpaper, hobby knife, yellow glue, hobby knife, masking tape, clear tape, primer (white), paint (white, gray), clear coat (optional). Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.
