There are many choices for model rocketry programs and
products for schools and youth groups. So, why choose FlisKits?
In a word, QUALITY. Not just quality
designs, kits and materials, but a quality experience as well.
Other rocket companies offer a very limited number of kits to
choose from, with limited opportunity for growth and advancement. FlisKits offers a
full line of bulk pack choices from Skill Level 1 through Skill
Level 4 along with the option to customize your own kit. Such opportunity
not available anywhere else in the industry!
Most of the bulk pack kits available from other companies are
"quick build" kits ("Ready to fly" and "Almost Ready to
fly") that include pre-molded plastic fin units and other pre-colored and decorated
items. This allows for fast completion and ultra simple assembly, but stifles the
imagination and creativity of your child. Additionally, there isn't much to teach
and hence, little to learn from these activities.
FlisKits model rocket kits are often described as "a
bag of raw materials with instructions". We consider this a feature of our
products. Our kits require the use of several tools, skills, ingenuity, and
imagination. With our kits you learn something! Skills that you can carry on
to more sophisticated kits and on to other, unrelated activities. With our kits you
will learn about applying glue, using a ruler and pencil, following instructions, cutting
with scissors and, in some cases, a hobby knife, namely self-discipline.
FlisKits model rocket kits feature the highest quality
materials in the industry, right down to the use of real balsawood nose cones and fins.
All of our products are designed and packaged in the USA from materials fabricated
and purchased from American companies. For ease of assembly some of our kits feature
precision laser cut fins, but most of our kits come with sheet balsawood stock from which
the modeler cuts their own fins with the aid of a paper fin pattern. This teaches
critical skills with critical tools. It also allows the modeler to consider creative
changes to the shape of the fins and, from that, the final look of his model.
The short photo album below shows how our nurturing of
creativity and imagination leads to incredible experiences with our products. (click on an
