North Coast Rocketry Releases the Hobgoblin TM Flying Model Rocket Kit! NCR 0207
North Coast Rocketry is proud to release the 2017 version of the Hobgoblin, reminiscent of a popular “D” powered kit from years ago
The Hobgoblin is designed to be an easy to assemble kit that fly's to spectacular altitudes
The design is capable of flying to altitudes to 3,300 feet on an Aerotech G80 motor
The kit feature laser cut plywood fins, colorful detailed self adhesive decals, a laser cut slotted body tube, plywood centering rings, easy-to-finish plastic nose cones, and the heavy duty Gorilla shock cord system
The Hobgoblin also includes a new feature found in NCR kits, a Quick Link that makes untangling the shock cord after flight much easier!
The kit is 2.64" in diameter, 34" long, and weighs 13.5 ounces (without the parachute)
Includes 1/4" Launch Lugs that can be upgraded to Rail Buttons(available separately)
This kit does not include a 24-36” nylon parachute that you will have to supply from your stash
We advise updating the motor retention to a screw on motor retainer
