Swivel Planes

Behold the power of thrust as your plane propels itself around a pivot at surprising speeds! Build a swivel plane kit that can then be modified to make your own spinning creation. Will you make a dog chase a cat, an x-wing and tie fighter? Or opt to keep it a plane? Space is limited, so students MUST attend if they register.
