Description

The Wind Bag is a balloon-powered racer designed for both speed and distance. What makes it unique is a specially designed system that holds the balloon in place during its travel, thereby limiting friction and providing consistent thrust from the balloon. The kit comes with three different-size nozzles that maximize distance, speed, or combined speed and distance. Requires white glue and a drill, sold separately.
