    Kids had a great time. Only busted 4. Have plenty left which is what made the large package great. Didn't expect them to last forever. I played with them when young. It's balsa wood!! Have fun and don't worry, there are more!

          It was delivered bent. we ordered some package and about 1/2 of them were bent out of shape, unusable. If they weren't bent out of shape they would have all been great. My daughter loves to play with the ones that we were able to contruct

              My grandson and I love flying the gliders around our home and we don't have to worry about breaking anything but the glider. The prop jobs we use outside just because they tend to need a bit more room to maneuver. I remember my grandfather bringing home a couple of these when I was young and spending hours throwing them around the yard.
