    I have always wanted an Arapahoe E since the first time I saw one.

    They're a pain in the butt to clone. I built an E & an F (BT80) when it was OOP. I'm sure the kits are way easier to build. Sweet addition to anyone's fleet.
    Thinking outside the box is normal for me. Went inside the box once and got claustrophobic.
    Can't never did!
    Inventions weren't created by skeptics.
    There's a bright side to every screwed up week.

    +1 pain to clone, just did one last spring, it flies as good as it looks. Looking forward to getting at least one of the new kits asap.

    Not in the budget right now, but will probably add Too Cool for Spool when it is

    Mine arrived on Friday. My build pile is out of control, so it may be a while till I get this one, but it looks really great. The parts look to be really good quality - beautifully turned NC and tail cone, great fin stock (looks nice and solid). Not packed too tightly in the bag, and the shipping package was a triangular priority mail "tube."

    Good job! Once I get a few half-built rockets finished, I'm going to have to start on this one.

    Been waiting for this release for a while, and just saw it's available. Already have a tracking number.

    Can't wait to get building.

    Compared to my usual pace of building lately I'm making tremendous progress. I got the motor tube in the boat tail, the teabag on one end of the shock cord, the shroud lines attached to the parachute, and the screw eye installed in the nose cone.

    Couple observations so far:

    - I really like the Squirrel's red mylar chute material. Makes up for having to tie all those shroud lines on.

    - Don added a hardwood plug in the base of the cone to provide a nice, stronger-than-balsa anchor point for the screw eye.
