A mini engine powered version of the 1335 Mega Mosquito. And do we mean MINI! Standing just 3.8″ tall, this little guy can really soar! The Mosquito features simple and quick construction with out of site performance.

Tumble recovery brings this awesome little rocket back to earth. When powered by the A10-3T mini engine, heights of 800 feet can be reached! That’s more than 200 times his own height! But buyer beware, with him being so small and using the most powerful mini engine we make, he might not return! So consider yourself warned. 🙂

  1. Keith

    A real classic

    This was one of the first model rockets I ever built. I was very intrigued with the tiny size of it and “finny” design. I’m glad it’s still on Estes’ line of models.

  2. Doug (verified owner)

    Big fun in a small package

    I love these and have had many. Very quick assembly. I use neon orange paint to help find them.

  3. Michael

    Small But Great

    I love this rocket. Before, I thought bigger was better but this rocket made me change my mind.
