The all sci-fi design is implemented in the UGears skeleton steampunk style that allows you to look inside the working mechanism that you will assemble with your own hands. The launcher is equipped with a rubber band motor that provides tension that powers a plane’s release. The trigger that sets off the mechanism has a safety lock. Tension and therefore the distance your aircraft is going to cover are controlled by a winding crank. The range of your new cool ballistic model can exceed 30 meters – depending on the “bolts” used and how tight the crank is wound. A special support makes the crank a part of the platform for the aircraft you will launch.
No glue or special tools are required to assemble this UGears mechanical launcher. Kit includes high-quality sustainable wood parts that fit together like a puzzle. Kit also includes a plywood glider and two paper airplanes you can use with your Flight Starter, along with any planes you design.
Depending on how you adjust the angles of the wings and other elements of a plane before launching it into the sky, you can make it go into a loop, barrel-roll, nose-up and other fun maneuvers.
