"one of the best ever"
wbraunsdorf
I built two of the these in the eighties and having it back was great news. The laser cuts fins make a huge difference, The original kit had them cut from balsa stock and I made mine too small and that led to stability issues. Make sure you use the nose weights, it's there for a reason. I hope they upscale it. The original version had four step instructions that assumed you've build rockets before, that sheet would have neat to include for history's sake.

"Love this Rocket"
scottlowery3658
This is a great build for a level 2 kit. Comes with two streamers but I decided to replace with a 12 chute. Assembles nicely but does require dual paint colors of yellow and black. Great rocket to add to your fleet.

 
"Estes Goblin Quintessential Level 2 Model, but wait there's more"
champfluff
Estes goblin is a great rocket, but a wee bit under engineered, for my taste. 1st-It needs a slotted BT-55 body tube for though tube wall fins. 2nd-Though tube fins to the BT-50 engine mount. 3rd-Upgrade paper centering rings to plywood and internal ribs, made out of resin impregnated balsa, parallel to the fins, like internal gussets. It doesn't add that much weight to tail end of this kit, so not much more weight will have to added to the nose cone. 4th-Use epoxy!!! 5th-Add an ejection baffle, by extending the engine tube or, in the BT-55. 6th-Add a parachute with a spill hole, instead of 2 streamers. 7th-Upgrade rubber shock cord to nylon, or Kevlar and attach to centering rings. 8th-Since it's distant larger cousin,(DRM), Der Red Max was made, by Estes, into, (DBRM), Der Big Red Max, so why not swap to a full length BT-55 18 slotted body tube, instead of half, for an XL-Goblin. This would make it easier to modify, for the longer, higher grain cases either 24mm, or 29mm. If you have a really small field, there's a cluster mod for 4x13mm motors, using A10-3's and taking it to about 350 feet of altitude. I wouldn't fly it on anything less. Over all, the Estes Goblin is a must have for any rocket enthusiast.

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
