Estes Mongoose Rocket Kit (Skill Level 1)
Snakes won't get close to this agile and cunning Mongoose! The Estes Mongoose is the perfect first time building and flying experience for a newbie who wants to try their hand at flying a two stage rocket. A two stage rocket has two sections of the rocket with the engines stacked or staged one on top of the other. The lower or first stage contains a booster engine that kicks the rocket off the launch pad, and the upper or second stage has a standard engine inserted into it for extreme flight altitude. Recovery is usually by parachute or streamer. The action is always hot when flying a staged rocket!
The Mongoose has been given a face-lift and the new colors rock! A really cool purple body tube, a bright yellow plastic nose cone and fins and showy, self-stick decals build into one over the top, high performance rocket! A Skill Level 1 kit, this quick and easy builder will have you out at the flying field in no time!
The Mongoose can be flown as a single stage rocket or add a booster engine and watch this beast soar to astonishing heights of over 1,800 feet (549 m). Standing over 26 inches (67 cm) tall, this high flying rocket will descend back to earth on a shiny 18 inch (46 cm) preassembled parachute.
