Building a hot-air balloon is a great project for students, but you need a launcher to really get the most out of the activity. This hot-air balloon launcher was designed for the safest and easiest launch possible. The launcher features a cool-to-the-touch chimney and a grill to block access to the flame. The inflation guides make it a breeze to hold the balloon in place while filling. These guides hold the balloon open, resulting in a faster inflation time – plus they keep hands from drifting over the blast of hot air.
The Inflation Station launches balloons ranging in size from two to nine feet. Also includes propane cylinder base, attached torch kit and self-igniter, Adventures in Lighter-Than-Air Flight book, and instructions. Requires a standard propane canister, sold separately.
