Moon Mutt

ESTES Model #1496


The Moon Mutt rocket – E2X series with some really easy assembly required. It comes with the traditional glued in shock cord but in such a small body tube one needs to make sure it is placed far enough in so the nose cone can still fit fully when ready to launch. Also they give a huge 12″ Parachute. This rocket is ideal for a starter kit as it is durable enough to take landings without parachute deployment and fly again and again.
