Default Estes 2120 - Venus Probe

This is an out of the ordinary offering that's not too difficult. It flies up and then at ejection, separates into two pieces. The body tube and tin can recover conventionally under a parachute but the separation releases some extremely wide legs and the "lander" portion also recovers under a chute. The extremely wide base ensures that it lands upright on it's tail. As it does, you can see that an "alien gray", who happens to be yellow, is driving.

I am asking $40

This kit is offered for sale in an effort to liquidate my collection of kits and is being offered via cross postings on The Rocketry Forum and Ye Olde Rocket Forum. The price indicated is what I have determined by looking for evidence of similar sales but, admittedly, might reflect a poor judgement on my part. I'm just doing the best that I can. The price does NOT include shipping. Interested persons are invited to contact me via PM and I will calculate the shipping. Payment is expected by means of PayPal, Zelle or Venmo. My intention is to make shipments twice per week after confirming receipt of funds. I will try to give the most accurate descriptions I am able to provide and will happily answer any specific questions either by PM or within the post thread.

I used to tell Mom, "...I want to fly rockets when I grow up!"

She said, "Make up your mind, you can't do both!"
