Sky Eagle Plane

SKU: W38964
A Pitsco Exclusive


When students build their own Sky Eagle Plane, a rubber motor plane, they are encouraged to learn about the scientific principles of gravity, lift, drag, potential and kinetic energies, and more.

After students construct the balsa wood frame, cover it with the printed paper cover, and add the motor and propeller, it’s time for some classroom fun. Wind it up and let it fly outside or in the gymnasium. Students can experiment with the tabs and number of motor winds to learn how different variables affect the flight.
