    Sadly... not a darn thing. Even worse, my boss is hinting that we will probably move again in June, so my workshop will be getting packed and pretty much all rocketry activities will be suspended until further notice. *Maybe* by fall something can be unpacked enough to start something, but with a little luck, I might be able attend a launch somewhere.

    Blessings,

    Never done the Black Friday thing before....but did get in on the Madcow Nike Apache sale this time.

    Blood was in the water and the frenzy was hard to avoid this time. LOL
    We got two categories of pilots around here. We got your prime pilots that get all the hot planes, and we got your pud-knockers who DREAM about getting the hot planes.
    Now what are you two pud-knockers gonna have?... Huh?

    Mostly altimeters and other gear for a couple projects, but couldn't resist the Nike Apache. Just crossing my fingers now on some 54mm motor hardware.

    Have wait and see what Wildman offers tomorrow, otherwise its looking like a Eggfiner Mini and a Eggfinder LCD-GPS module. Madcow had a good sale but the only rocket I really wanted was the 1.1 Go Devil and its been out of stock for a bit.

    Likewise. Ended up getting a non minimum diameter 38mm that will probably get built as minimum diameter.

    I even e-mailed Madcow to see when the go devils and smaller Mongoose was going to be in stock but nobody got back to me.

    They even restocked the Mongoose 38mm kit that sold out a few weeks ago, magic how they happened to get more when the sale wasn't as good on it. Oh well, maybe next year.

    BuwhahHaha...
    Yeah. I had to beg the Madcow owner for weeks about the CF iD/OD sizes because we were team scratch building MD components to fit on a senior project. Most unresponsive business owner I've ever dealt with. Nice products. Decent pricing. Just no sense of urgency to answer. There's still bits of Madcow CF tubing in fragments on the Bonneville Salt Flat. Wasn't the tube's fault. Couple O dorks sanded it too far. Lol.
