The flagship of the Quest model rocket line! The Quest Astra is one of the most widely used model rocket kits offered and features Quest's TTW "Through-The-Wall" balsa fin design. TTW fin attachment makes building so much easier. It really helps you glue the rocket fins on straight and in the correct position. The Astra includes color coded parts to make identification for assembly easier. It uses a Kevlar shock cord that is anchored right to the engine mount for reliable recovery. These features give you the benefit of a more successful building experience. Perfect for schools, youth groups, Civil Air Patrol, 4H, and Scouting Space Exploration Merit Badge requirements.
