Cosmic Wind AF-40


Replica of a famous Formula 1 class Reno race plane.


This product would be a great hands-on addition for your next STEM program.

Description: Cosmic Wind is a sport replica of the famous Formula 1 class Reno racer. Cosmic Wind was the first Formula 1 racer to go around the course at over 200 mph. Our Cosmic Wind is a superb, rugged flyer with very stable flying characteristics. This aircraft requires no tools and/or knife for assembly. All sticks are pre-cut and color coded for easy assembly. The durable and easy to fly Cosmic Wind makes it a perfect choice for the beginner.

If you are looking for your first aerospace hands-on build and fly project for your classroom the Cosmic Wind is for you. No matter the age of your students, this is the perfect first aircraft. We recommend the students to be at least fourth grade and up. Like the real Cosmic Wind, your race number 7 is also equipped with a fixed landing gear.
