Item Number: EST7290
When humanity returns to the moon, look for the Space Corps Lunar Scout to lead the way. Compact, easy to build, and constructed from laser-cut cardstock, this highly detailed rocket flies up to 200 feet on an Estes A10-0T engine and returns by featherweight recovery - ideal for small fields!
Compact and lightweight, the Estes Lunar Scout is designed to fly well on smaller engines. A maximum altitude of 200 feet can be expected using the Estes A10-0T mini engine. Engine options for lower altitude flights are also available. The Lunar Scout features featherweight recovery - the rocket is engineered to fall back to Earth after powered flight and land unharmed, ready to take another engine and fly again. With relatively low altitude launches and a rapid featherweight recovery, the Lunar Scout makes for a great small field flyer. No need to wait for NASA to create their Lunar Scout - build and fly yours today!
