First off, you cannot buy a hybrid rocket motor. You can buy solid rocket fuel ones but their specific impulse is much lower than a well designed hybrid. What type of liquid fuel where you intending on using? (N2O, O2, H2O2 etc) and how big are you looking at? Instead of trying such a hard task (which I myself couldn't accomplish) rather start slowly and test some estes motors, work up to it learn how to use a lathe, engineer parts etc

Have you used a solid rocket before (let alone a hybrid)? Do you know how they operate? What oxidiser do you intend on using? etc I think you need a little more planning and expertise
