Item Number: EST2092
Snakes won’t get close to this one! The Mongoose is a two stage rocket that builds into one over the top, high performance rocket! Soars to astonishing heights of over 1,600 feet using the Estes standard model rocket engines.
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 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.
Standing over 26 inches tall, this high-flying rocket will descend back to earth on a colorful 12 inch parachute.
