The LOC Goblin model rocket is a new 4” diameter rocket kit. With permission to upscale a classic rocket, the LOC Goblin is here and full of new features. The most notable is a Loc-n-Mount system allowing 54, 38, and 29mm motors. At 42 ounces it’s light enough to be a Class 1 flyer, and with the main 54mm it can easily attain high power flights. Decals are included as well as all necessary hardware and rail guides. Recovery is with a 36” Rip-stop nylon parachute and 15’ flat braided nylon shock cord with loops sewn in the ends. The booster section can be completely assembled and then slid into the airframe for maximum strength.  OR still use the traditional fin tabs and slots. 

LOC Custom Series kits are designed to get away from the standard FTC (fin, tube, cone) rocket and may include a wide variety of building options. Using advanced techniques and bringing traditional modeling together, these kits will only go as far as your construction skills!

    The Goblin is relatively easy to build and super cool. I recommend building the fin can outside the airframe for maximum strength. I did the entire build except for finishing in 3 evenings. Can’t wait to get this one to a launch!

    I just received my Level 1 Certification with this great kit. The kit was easy to build and I referred to all the Goblin builds on the internet to get so get tips. I build my fin can outside and with the fillets was really strong. I did taper my fin edges but that what I do. Lots of motors options from 29mm/38mm/54mm. I want with a 36″ Rockman SpaceX chute with a Jolly Logic Chute Release. My Cert flight was on an H112-8BJ, one of the commits was that was a textbook flight. Overall the construction was simple, easy, and a well-desighed kit. I would recommend this for anyone that wants to get into high power to get certified for level 1 or level 2.

    I couldn’t say it any better then Jona did. Went together beautiful and easy. Had to add a little nose weight. Received my L2 great flier

    I bought a LOC 4″ Goblin as my first high power kit and I’m glad I did.

    The instructions were easy to follow, and everything aligned perfectly.

    The vinyl graphics are first rate and apply beautifully.

    I built my Goblin with the fin-can built outside, then slid into the body tube (BT) after everything was solid with strong fillets. The entire assembly used TiteBond III (fin can assembly) and 15 minute epoxy to glue the fin can into the BT. I also used epoxy to lock the eye-bolt into position.

    I covered my Goblin in Hangar 9 Ultracote (R/C airplane heat shrink covering) for a beautiful finish instead of painting. I also substituted in an Estes Mega Deer Red Max nosecone for the perfect look.

    I’ve yet to fly it, but I know it’ll go straight and high!

    Thanks LOC Precision for a beautiful upscale of this Estes classic!
