I bit into this mosquito when it was dinner time

I bit into this mosquito when it was dinner time and it tasted horrible and it looked nothing like a mosquito bug. I love eating bugs and this one tasted like cardboard! I thought it said on the packageing that this was a mosquito bug. Thanks a lot, Estes!

Neat little rocket, fun build and super flyer..... right out

Neat little rocket, fun build and super flyer..... right out of sight. Recommend 1/4 A motor. First flight was perfect, straight up, tracked the ejected motor, then the rocket followed and landed within 10 feet of the launcher. Second flight, right out of sight and neighbor found the next day some 400 feet away from my launcher. I'm guessing the ejection charge ignited when the rocket was at apogee and sent it sideways, so watch for the tracking smoke and look for your Mosquito in a very large area.
