The Lunar Scout series of remote, robotic space probes was
crucial to the success of the new lunar landing program of the late
2020s. This automated craft had a single, critical directive: map the
moon’s surface in exacting detail to identify prospective
sites for the “Second Giant Leap” as that series of
lunar landing missions eventually become known. Designed to be
inexpensive to manufacture and proven reliable after more than a dozen
flawless lunar landing and mapping missions, Space Corps later adapted
the Lunar Scout to explore Mars and its twin moons Phobos and Deimos.

The Estes Lunar Scout is a lightweight model of this future
historic space probe that will one day play such an important role in
humanity’s return to the moon. With just enough detail to
make this a fun but challenging build, the Lunar Scout is right for all
levels of model rocket crafters. This Intermediate-Level kit features
laser-cut cardstock fins and other structural parts that come together
to form an amazing flying model rocket. Intricately designed
water-slide decals add an additional note of realism. The full-size
Lunar Scout may not actually exist quite yet, but this model looks real
enough to do the job now!

Compact and lightweight, the Estes Lunar Scout is designed to
fly well on smaller engines. A maximum altitude of 200 feet can be
expected using the Estes A10-0T
mini engine. Engine options for lower altitude flights are also
available. The Lunar Scout features featherweight recovery –
the rocket is engineered to fall back to Earth after powered flight and
land unharmed, ready to take another engine and fly again. With
relatively low altitude launches and a rapid featherweight recovery,
the Lunar Scout makes for a great small field flyer. No need to wait
for NASA to create their Lunar Scout – build and fly yours
today!
