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' (549 m). Standing over 26" (67 cm) tall, this highflying rocket will descend back to earth on a shiny 18" (46 cm) preassembled parachute. Glue, modeling tools, Estes engines and launch supplies not included - sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12.
