    What did you do rocket wise today?

    About equal I think, although the kids have more energy to run and catch the rockets before they hit the ground. I'm just happy they hit the ground and not a tree or roof :-)

    Thanks! That's an original. I was between kits and had some spare parts laying around and came up with that. It's a fun one, uses two small parachutes for recovery, one black and the other orange.

    Thanks! I'm going to try and get better video of it next launch. There are 3 parachute men in it that come down separately from the rocket itself. That's where the name comes from, it "injects" the parachuting commandos :-)

    Did you build that Starship Avalon from scratch? Way cool!

    If Estes wants more of my money, then...

    We were talking about this on the Estes Rocketeers FB page. Word is that their long-time customer service person just passed away a few days ago, so they have had a lot to deal with.

    Built a Semrock Orbital Transport, fulfilling a childhood pledge. Tried building the estes version of this when I was 13 and totally messed it up. Swore to my 13 year old self if I ever got the chance again to build one I would. One promise down, a few more to go!

    That is one cool rocket! Is it a kit or scratch build?

    Had some spare parts laying around and decided to throw them together into a scratch build. Not sure what to call it yet, suggestions?

    Any tips on slotting tubes?

    I did those on a build and I used part of a toilet paper roll cut to size and mounted inside to fortify the body tube walls. Also helped to give a little more strength to the fin attachment.
