Aim high with an exciting and curious model from
Ugears, the Flight Starter, a portable hand catapult loaded with smart
mechanics and a lot of fun.
The Flight Starter is a mechanical launcher for light
flying airplane models, three of which you will find in the kit. The model’s
one of a kind design is a pure work of imagination that produced a look
resembling something from outer space – a star ship, a shuttle or a blaster gun
from a science fiction adventure film. The all sci-fi design is implemented in
the Ugears skeleton steampunk style that allows you to look inside the working
mechanism which you get to assemble with your own hands.
The launcher is equipped with a rubber band motor that
provides tension that powers your plane when released. The trigger that sets
off the mechanism has a safety lock. The 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 was wound. A special support makes the crank a
part of the platform for the aircraft you will launch.
A high-quality plywood and ergonomic design ensure
that the launcher comfortably sits in your hand and allows you to aim more
The kit also includes a plywood glider and two paper
airplanes you can use with your Flight Starter along with those planes you want
to design by yourself. 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.
Ugears wishes you fair skies and tail-winds. Send your
imagination to flight with the Flight Starter from Ugears!
