I would like to publicly thank Barone, for generously donating an original Estes Mosquito kit to me. Thank you Barone!

Barone is one of the nicest people in rocketry.


As for the Mosquitos, you can purchase all the BNC-5Vs nose cones you want from Semroc, along with a 34" length of tube (enough to make 17 Mosquitos). Pick up a length of balsa from Semroc or your local hobby store and you can make Mosquitos for way less than the eBay kits will probably cost.

How about a 20X upscale from Polecat Aerospace.

Or a 10X upscale from Madcow Rocketry.
