Launch set, not just rocket 9/28/2012

The product page doesn't include any photo of the launch pad or controller, so you may not be clear on the fact that this is a launch set -- a starter kit for model rocketry, if you will. So it's a better value than it appears. However, it does not come with rocket engines or recovery wadding, which you'll have to buy separately (but which Walmart doesn't carry on this site). The model rockets I built when a teenager were made with balsa wood fins and glued entirely with white glue or carpenter's glue. This model features plastic parts and so you'll need plastic model cement, which is harder to find nowadays than it sued to be. You do need a little white glue for gluing the elastic cord into the paper model tube.
