Hang Tag (Header Card) Guide
The Stinger is a high performance skill level 1 kit with typical three fin design. It is powered by 18mm engines and Estes estimates that the sport rocket is capable of flights up to 1000 feet. The rocket uses steamer recovery due to high altitudes and being light weight.
Kit Contents: The kit contains a main body tube, plastic nose cone, die cut balsa for fins, 18mm engine mount, launch lug and instruction sheet.
Availability: I've rated the kit as moderately scarce as eBay appearances are infrequent. However, there are not special kit attributes that make the #1905 Stinger an attractive collector's item. The Stinger is another Estes 3FN type rocket.
