Aim for the skies and embark on an exhilarating journey with the Ugears Flight Starter. This unique and innovative model is a portable hand catapult, brimming with ingenious mechanics and endless fun.
The Flight Starter isn't just any launcher; it's designed to propel lightweight flying airplane models, and the kit includes three such planes to get you started. The model's remarkable design draws inspiration from the realms of outer space, evoking imagery of starships, shuttles, or futuristic blaster guns straight out of a science fiction adventure. All of this is wrapped in Ugears' signature skeleton steampunk style, offering you a window into the intricate inner workings of the mechanism you'll assemble by hand.
Powered by a rubber band motor, the launcher stores energy and releases it with precision to send your aircraft soaring. It's equipped with a safety lock mechanism for a secure launch, and a winding crank lets you control the tension and the flight distance. Depending on the choice of "bolts" and the tightness of the crank, your ballistic model can reach distances of over 30 meters. The crank even doubles as a platform for your launched planes, enhancing accuracy.
Constructed from high-quality plywood and featuring an ergonomic design, the Flight Starter rests comfortably in your hand, allowing for precise aiming. The kit also includes a plywood glider and two paper airplanes for immediate use with your Flight Starter. Feel free to experiment and design your own aircraft, adjusting wing angles and elements to achieve fantastic maneuvers like loops, barrel rolls, and nose-ups.
If you're keen to craft your custom aircraft, Ugears recommends using relatively light materials like paper, cardboard, or balsa wood. The model kit consists of 198 parts, all crafted from natural materials that offer a tactile, pleasant feel. Just like all Ugears models, the Flight Starter comes with step-by-step, full-color instructions in 11 languages, making assembly a breeze without requiring glue or special tools.
