    I bought mine from Tim at Wildman's. It's hard to go wrong with him. Great service....great prices....great shipping....especially with the Wildman Club.

    Tim certainly is great and the prices are good, especially if you are in the Wildman Club.

    I use Loki's almost exclusively in my HPR.

    Loki has released several moon-burners which are awesome motors. Get your hands on a J175. Look for new propellant types coming soon.

    Loki sells direct to the end user.

    www.lokiresearch.com

    dealers are: (Rember to support your local vendors, if you have them.)

    www.hangar11.com
    www.performancehobbies.com

    If at first you don't succeed, it must have been a Contrail "O" Motor.

    Weird.

    Bobby is a good friend as well so I think I will pop him a note. This is very unlike him.

    thanks, that would be swell....but the sad part is I ordered it 2 weeks ago so I could have it built by the 11th for the TQC launch....now there's really not much chance of that.

    Hi nate. If you have a vendor that shows up at your HPR launches, buying from them is worth more in gold down your HPR career then low cost ever will be.

    Support the vendor that shows up at your launches, and helps you out.

    If more then one shows up, support the one(s) that helps the flyers out.

    Some reasons I support my local vendors: it ensures they keep coming so I can pick up last minute items and supplies, free swaps on motor delays, advice, no shipping, no hazmat, instant warranty replacement, get to look over various products first hand...and an occasional demo motor

    Hi Nate. As you go to your launches you will see the on site vendor (or two) that helps out the flyers in their complex projects.

    they do this for the F class flyer, the I class flyer , the K class flyer and N class flyer.

    One day in your HPR career you will be in the Golden sweet spot of having lots of help just when you really need it .

    I say this from my own experiance in the support I got when I needed it.

    Hangar 11

    Hangar 11 comes to our launch on a regular basis.
    He is in the middle of opening an actual store front.
    Trying to open before the end of the month...

    I'm sure he's up to him armpits with construction tids bits needed to get the store up & running.

    hi guys,

    Just to clear everything up, Bobby called me today and said that he was shipping my order tomorrow, and the only reason it hadn't gotten out was because of the move. he expidited it at his expense and it should be here later this week. that's the kind of service I really respect; should something go wrong with an order, he did all he could to make it right, I'm impressed. I completley understand where he's coming from and I'm still very happy with his service I'm happy to hear he's getting an actual storefront, and I would still recommend him to anyone.

    cheers!
