Ever want to scratch build a Rocket Vision Mach Buster? Here's your starting point.

I have two sets of parts to get you started. One phenolic body tube, one 3D printed cone, one motor mount, and one 6' length of Kevlar shock cord per "kit." Just add fins and a streamer and you're in business. These tubes and cones will take whatever you can throw at them.

Price is $13 shipped for one (PayPal friends and family) or$23 for both. I'll even toss in enough 1/16" G10 for fins if you buy both.

Thanks!

Not really sure how you would pull it off in a rocket of this size without electronics, but more power to you!

This tubing can take literally any 24mm motor that can fit. I'll see about getting some fin sets cut.

Thinking of using a quark and mini but it's a thought . Or use BP motors and go with that

Dan- if you made a full kit (with g10 fins), I'd be in for one.

Everyone has spoken, and the overwhelming consensus is the desire for a complete kit. Be on the lookout for a parts kit to clone a Rocket Vision Mach Buster inclusive of the following:

- XX Phenolic Body Tube
- 3D Printed Ogive Nosecone with integral shock cord attachment
- 24mm Motor tube - paper
- 1/16" G10 fins

You'll be responsible for supplying your preferred launch guidance method and recovery components. The airframe can handle literally any 24mm motor you can throw at it.

Tentative price point is \$20 per kit plus shipping.

This could take 29mm and go MD and he can sell more of his cases

Nope, the body tube is actually the same dimensions as my 29mm case material, meaning it will slip inside of a 29mm motor tube.

Just need to load grains and nozzle into the rocket.

Wow, pretty overwhelming response. I will be placing orders for raw materials this week with the hopes of being ready to ship next week. The printer is cranking around the clock to meet the demand!

Looks like there's 13-15 accounted for. First run will be 16 kits.

You have to cut your own fins ;-)

Printer is working away, the first four cones are yellow and the rest will be blue.

Now we're cooking. All that is left is to cut fin sets!

I'll be reaching out to those interested in order of interest. First run is 20 kits, of which I plan to keep one!
