Experience the excitement of rocketry with the Estes Mongoose, the perfect two-stage rocket for beginners! With its booster engine and standard engine, this rocket can fly to incredible heights of up to 1,800 feet while recovery by parachute or streamer adds to the excitement.

In addition to its impressive two-stage capabilities, the Estes Mongoose has another trick up its sleeve: it can also fly as a single-stage rocket. This makes it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced rocketeers.

Building the Mongoose is a fun and rewarding experience that requires basic tools like scissors, pencil, and hobby knife, as well as construction and finishing supplies like glue and tape.

Standing over 26 inches tall, the Estes Mongoose is a high-flying rocket that will descend back to earth on a colorful 12-inch parachute. Get ready to experience the thrill of rocketry with the Estes Mongoose!

  • SKILL LEVEL: The Mongoose is an Intermediate level rocket which will help a budding rocketeer develop some basic model building and finishing skills.
  • RECOMMENDED ENGINES: A8-3, A8-5, B4-4, B6-0, B6-4, B6-6, C6-0, C6-5, C6-7
  • PROJECTED ALTITUDE: 1600 ft. (488 m) on a C6-7


The Estes Mongoose is the perfect first-time building and flying experience for newcomers who want to try their hand at flying a two-stage rocket.

A two stage rocket has two sections of the rocket with the engines stacked or staged one on top of the other. The lower, or first stage, contains a booster engine that kicks the rocket off the launch pad. The upper, or second stage, has a standard engine inserted into it for extreme flight altitude.

Recovery is made easy with the included parachute. The action is always hot when flying a staged rocket! The Mongoose rocket is capable of flying as a single stage rocket. But for even more fun, add a booster engine and watch this beast soar to astonishing heights of over 1,800 feet.

Standing over 26 inches tall, this high-flying rocket will descend back to earth on a colorful 12 inch parachute.
