The Goblin is the large scale replica of the famous Estes rockets which bears the same name.
The body tube is the famous LOC tube of excellent quality kraft cardboard, 100 mm (4") in diameter. Centering rings and fins are made of laser-cut birch plywood. A new feature in this kit is the "Loc-n-Mount" interchangeable motor mount to use 29mm, 38mm or 54mm motors by simply replacing the included adapters.
The construction is not complex but still requires experience in this type of rockets. The included 91 cm (36") parachute connects to the model via a tubular nylon shock cord with loops sewn in the ends. All hardware parts are included in the kit: screws, quick links, screweyes, threaded inserts and even the motor retainer. Rail guides have also been included, a great choice for this type of rockets.
Thanks to the possibility of mounting also 29 mm motors, and its weight of just under 1200 grams, the Goblin can also use G motors as long as they are chosen among the best performing (G80T, for example). The ideal engines for this model are however H or low power I.
A sheet of beautiful self-adhesive decals included in the kit allows you to finish the model as it appears in the image.
LOC/Precision is one of the longest-running brands of rocket kits and components. LOC kits are famous for the quality of materials, the simplicity of construction and the low cost.
Until now, LOC/Precision kits have always been essential, consisting of the parts strictly necessary for their assembly, and always required the addition of components to be purchased separately. In its new kits now LOC/Precision includes also the parts so far missing such as nylon parachute shock cords, Nomex protectors for the parachute, and decals.
