Frangible Arcas Model Rocket Kit [RK-1005]



Skill Level: 2

During the 1960's, the Frangible ARCAS was developed as a rocket that could be flown over residential areas. To avoid damage to property, or injury, upon landing, the rocket was destroyed in mid-air. It has a sheet of explosive material wrapped around the airframe. Once the explosive was triggered, the rocket was reduced to particle sizes with acceptable levels of kinetic impact energy.

The scale Frangible ARCAS model comes with the "explosives sheet" piece, ejection baffle, laser-cut plywood fins and descends under a parachute. The kit doesn't get blown to pieces and can enjoy many flights, as opposed to the real deal. The decals are included for all lettering shown.
