The Mean Machine stands over a staggering 6 foot (2m) tall, which can be a handful to transport to the launch site. The clever rocket designers at Estes recognized this problem and developed a unique, twist lock connector set that allows you to take your rocket apart in the middle for easy transport to and from the launch field.

This legendary rocket is a Skill Level 2 kit which can be assembled and painted in just about a day. The complete kit includes four matching body tubes, a molded plastic twist lock connector set, laser cut balsa fins, sleek molded plastic nose cone and a distinctive waterslide decal. The high performance rocket can be flown on powerful E or D engines with the included engine spacer. When flown onĀ an E engine, the rocket can reach launch heights well over 900 feet (274m) and is easily recovered by a colorful 24 inch (61cm) preassembled parachute.

This Skill Level 2 rocket requires more skill in building and painting. Building tools, finishing supplies, Estes engines and launch supplies also required - sold separately. E engine launches require an Estes Porta-Pad E Launch Pad, E Launch Controller and a 3/16 inch (5mm) Maxi Launch Rod - sold separately. Recommended for ages 18 and up with adult supervision for those under 18.
