Mongoose -  Pre-painted  Great 2-stage intro

It's Baaaaccckkkk! With a new "reversed" colour scheme - Estes best starter kit for multi-stage antics!

The Mongoose is from Estes' venerable Beta Series of pre-painted EZ to build kits. Assembly is easy enough for ages 10 and older. Adult supervision for kids under 12 is more than a good idea.

The Mongoose flies to over 1600 feet (492m) depending on how well it is built, the motor choices and launch conditions. It is a great introduction to two stage rocketry.

Self-adhesive decals in bright colors and vivid plastic fins, eye-popping cardboard body tube and one-piece hi-vis plastic nose cone make it VERY easy to find in the weeds... Mongoose flies HIGH and needs bright colours to help recovery tracking. The bright orange streamer helps, too.

Consider using a Microbeacon if the crop/weeds are more than knee high! We don't want you to lose it on the first flight!

And if the wind is REALLY up or your recovery area is a mite tight, you can fly the upper (sustainer) stage in single stage mode!

Maybe you think that the Mongoose is too "pre-packaged" and doesn't let you modify it to include your own ideas? Those EZPZ fins aren't the last word in performance either...

If you want good multi-stagers that are fast to build and flexible (but aren't purple and yellow out of the box) check out the Arcon Hi, Comanche 3 or the CC Express... those last two will get you half a mile high!
