What a winning combination with a NASA type rocket with boost gliders. The authentic booster rocket features a jet fighter look with plenty of scale detail and aerodynamic stability. The two shuttle fighters attach to the side of the booster and represent state of the art in stealth glider technology. After launching on a standard engine, this powerful rocket can soar to over 575 feet , where the fighters are deployed and can cruise for up to 200 feet. After the fighters separate, the booster floats gently down on a bright 12 inch preassembled parachute, ready for another exciting search and destroy mission! The Shuttle Xpress is from the E2X - Easy to Assemble series, which requires no painting and is easy to assemble in about an hour.
