Product Description

Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Destination Mars™ MAV  7283

The Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) is the first rocket in a new series at Estes, Destination Mars. A truly unique rocket, the MAV will keep you excited about the next steps to landing humans on Mars!

Once again, American engineers and astronauts are being put to the test as they work towards answering the call to land humans on Mars by 2033. And just as we did in 1958, Estes will once again answer the call to bring the space race directly into the hands and homes of budding astronauts and space enthusiasts from around the globe.

Meet the first release in Estes’ newest series Destination Mars, the Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV)! This lightweight, fully decorated, easy-to-assemble beginner rocket will delight kids and adults alike as they follow NASA’s achievements as they work towards reaching the next frontier. Imaginations may soar to Mars, but this MAV stays in the earth’s atmosphere, reaching heights of 250 feet on a C6-3 engine.
