Blast Off to Learning Fun
In addition to the excitement and entertainment it provides, rocketry also has significant educational value. Model rockets transform kids into amateur rocket scientists, encouraging them to think about how the rockets work. Rocket building teaches kids the basics of propulsion, flight, and aerodynamics, and can help foster an early interest in science and engineering. As a part of the RTF series, the Riptide can be assembled in just minutes. No special tools or painting are required for this kit, leaving more time for flying. The Riptide is a reliable, high performance rocket for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Mission Control
The Riptide requires Estes engines for the launch (not included). Start with the B4-4 engine for the first flight. Use Estes engines B6-4 or C6-5 for subsequent flights. Unless otherwise specified, all models require assembly. Tools, construction and finishing supplies sold separately. In order to launch, a launch system, model rocket engines, igniters, recovery wadding and four 'AA' alkaline batteries are required ? sold separately unless otherwise specified.
