The Blue Baboon

Flying perhaps the last of the Animal Motor Works’ N4000 Blue Baboon motors, our carbon-fiber Mongoose98XL roared to Mach 2.5 with a beautiful 10' plume.


The fiberglass bay has add-on GPS streaming and an RF tracking beacon in addition to the usual redundant avionics computers and CO2 parachute-deployment cartridges.
