Product Description

This is a Polecat Aerospace kit.  Polecat Aerospace kits are hand laid wrapped fiberglass around cardboard tubes.  The nose cones are hand laid / molded fiberglass.  The fins and centering rings are wood.  The fins are not beveled.  The motor tube is a cardboard tube.  This kit is available in both 54mm and 75mm motor mounts and as either single deploy or dual deploy.

This is a 1/3 scale replica of the famous sounding rocket from the 1950s and 1960s. The kit stands 76" tall and 5.5" in diameter. It comes standard with a 54mm motor mount, 34" long. With the addition of electronics, it will accommodate the popular 54mm hybrid motors.

When built per the instructions, the rocket weighs only 5.5 pounds! You will need a 36" to 50" parachute for this kit, depending on your finished weight and landing area.
