Hey guys,

I have a all fiberglass with Carbon fiber tip to tip (vacuum bagged) Mongoose 75mm for sale. I have flown it twice and they were spectacular flights. It used 75mm fly away rail guides. Internal motor retention, similar to an aeropack min diameter retainer but I used (2) 1 inch coupler pieces with a 75mm avbay lid sandwiched in between. Uses the Motors threaded forward closure with threaded rod and bolt anchored for the top side. I use an extend socket to tighten the nut. All stainless hardware throughout including the avbay and nose cone. Nose cone has threaded rod from metal tip to avbay lid on nose cone coupler. Easy to customize to your liking. Has terminal blocks for the drogue and main section bought from dog house rocketry.

The rocket has (3) layers of 5.7oz 2x2 twill carbon fiber on fin can on each side. I vacuumed bagged the whole thing using US Composites epoxy. I then had a profession auto body shop do the clear coat and it was baked.

I am asking $300.00 I dont think the kit is offered currently by Mad Cow Rocketry. I originally got it direct for Curtis May of 2017. With the quality of the carbon fiber and with the clear coat I am asking $300 bucks plus shipping. I will be attending Airfest so I can deliver to potential buyer there if buyer is attending.
