FunShuttles can be assembled and flown by Kindergarten students, yet they are interesting enough to challenge high schoolers as well.
FunShuttles are the latest in flight technology. The Columbia is a flying wing sporting space shuttle graphics. They can fly to altitudes of over 200 feet and even higher when wound with a mechanical winder.
These tractor propeller powered wings ascend vertically like a rocket. Then, just like the real space shuttle, the Columbia gracefully glides back to the ground after having reached maximum altitude. These flyers feature drag plates for pitch and turn adjustment in the glide mode.
Virtually indestructible, the FunShuttles can be flown in any wind condition. They are a blast, easy to make, very safe, and affordable. Imagine the excitement of your students during a mass launch!
Safe, Easy and Fun! These FunShutles assemble in minutes and no special skills are necessary.
