AMA Alpha Balsa Glider
Price : $11.95
Teaching and demonstrating the
principles of aerodynamics has never been easier (or more fun) than with the
all-new AMA Alpha hand launch, rubber-powered airplane! This portable EPS foam
and stick balsa aircraft is quickly and easily assembled thanks to its simple
clip-together technology. No cutting is required! Designed by Tom Sanders, a
member of the AMA Education Committee, the airplane is built to withstand tough
crashes and repairing it is simple. No more splintered piles of balsawood for
sad students to take home and never fly again! Because of the Alpha's durability
and design, when flying time ends the airplane is swiftly disassembled, packed
in its included box, and taken home to fly another day. The sky is calling-it's
time to take aerospace education to new heights!
