This is the Estes Quark Rocket Kit. The Quark is a mini engine powered mighty mite! This little alien rocket flies at supersonic speeds!

Estes Quark Rocket Kit (Skill Level 1)
I had one of these a few years ago and I loved it but I had a problem, it tends to land nose down and drill its way into the ground so I would recommend that you paint the fins a color that stands out from the ground(I used red and yellow) the first time I used it I put the most powerful rocket engine that would fit in it and sent it up. I lost sight of it(no wonder because its so small) and when I heard the POP from the rocket engine I saw the nose cone come down and a few seconds after I saw the rest come down so I would also recommend that you super glue the nose on and before you put a new engine in it , put some wadding in the nose to keep it from burning up in flight
