A mini engine powered version of the 1335 Mega Mosquito. And do we mean MINI! Standing just 3.8 inches 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.

    One of my first rockets, and I bought many of them back in the early 1980s when they were 99 cents each! Always a neat little project during the summer.

    It’s so good seeing the Mosquito back on the launch pad. This was my very first rocket back in the late 70s/early 80s. Like the description says, it may not come back….so just buy a fleet! Great rocket and always a blast to fly
