The Estes Mongoose is the perfect first-time building and flying experience for newcomers who want 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. The upper, or second stage, has a standard engine inserted into it for extreme flight altitude.
Recovery is made easy with the included parachute. The action is always hot when flying a staged rocket! The Mongoose rocket is capable of flying as a single stage rocket. But for even more fun, add a booster engine and watch this beast soar to astonishing heights of over 1,800 feet.
Standing over 26 inches tall, this high-flying rocket will descend back to earth on a colorful 12 inch parachute.
