This review is for the 2010 EMRR Challenge "Two on One" review. Duane Boldt and Alan Boldt contributed to this review. Alan: This 26.5" 2-stage rocket is purple and yellow with cool decals. It is easy to build and there are not many parts. The Mongoose has plastic, one-piece fin units on both the booster and sustainer. Components: 1 - 18" Purple body tube 1 - 2" Purple ...
This is a entry-level, two-stage ro cket with parachute recovery. The kit is a basic two-stage consisting of upper and lower body tubes, nose cone, molded plastic fins, and a basic recovery system. Construction was easy, but once again I had to tweak it! I heard that the upper and lower tubes around the motor mounts was weak so instead of centering rings, I filled the upper and lower tubes ...
This is a fairly simple 2-stage, 18mm rocket from Estes. I have slightly modified mine with shortening and a modified booster motor mount to repair damage. The parts list: 18" of BT-50; mine only has 10" left. 1-15/16" of BT-50 for booster 2 magenta plastic fin units PNC-50YR: 2-part magenta nose cone 2 blue 18mm engine mount tubes of rather poor quality 2 green ...
I originally purchased an Estes' Mongoose Kit because I wanted to use it for an experiment, however, when my 8 year old nephew came to visit it seemed like a good kit to build together. So we built it. The instructions have lots of illustrations, however, that didn't help us fully understand how to assemble the lower stage's motor mount. I think the problem starts in the first step when ...
Modification from a 2-stage model to however many stages you want. Modifications: Put together exactly as the instructions indicate, then get extra booster assemblies and put them together. At the launch field, butt all the motors you need together, then slide into all the booster assemblies, and put the factory-supplied booster assembly at the bottom (you might want to fit this for a ...
I have re-designed the Estes Mongoose as a single-stage 24mm, minimum diameter rocket I call the MonoGoose. It utilizes the kit's two plastic fin assemblies to create a strong, diamond airfoil fin can. MonoGoose can be flown on D12's, the new Estes E9's, E15's or any 24/40 reload. Components: To the packaged components of an Estes Mongoose all that is required to build a MonoGoose is two ...
