I know some of this stuff may be a bit pricey. I am trying to include a variety. This list will be updated regularly as more ideas come to mind. I won't bombard Papa Elf with emails, so whoever gets my name check back here regularly, maybe something more affordable will show up.
LOC Iroc (Hey my Secret Santa may be overly generous)
Scratch built design in my head:
3" body tube - LOC, Binder or blue tube (even better)
54mm body tube - LOC, Binder or blue tube (even better)
3" Nose cone
48" X-Type chute
12" X-type parachute
Hardware: used is fine if you have some you no longer fly, just as long as they are safe and flight worthy
Aerotech compatible: 29/180 case, 38/120 case, 38/480 case - I have closures, but they would be nice too
Any Loki 38mm motor (120, 240, 480)
Aerotech 38mm reload adaptor system
2.6" fiberglass Goblin
3" Little John
Eggtimer Rocketry Classic or Quantum (if it is assembled and operational, that is absolutely okay)
Perfectflite Stratologger CF
18x18 chute protector
Missileworks screw switches
RRC2+ 38mm Li-Ion Modular Sled System
Nomex shock cord protector
I will appreciate anything I get and will incorporate into a build in some form or fashion, it just may take a while.
