    For those who think that the US (and possibly others) are overreacting to Coronavirus:

    By this definition, ALL media is propaganda these days (something that I actually believe to my great disappointment these days). I think it's up to us as intelligent individuals to filter through and decide for ourselves what the kernels of truth underneath the propaganda is. Back to the C19...

    Aeropack retainer on thin walled fiberglass tubing

    Personally, I'd get a piece of phenolic 54 to use as a MMT, and then use the fiberglass as a body tube for another rocket... :)

    Reloadable casings

    I have a very good relationship with my motor vendors. What I've found in the past is that for clear warranty issues, my vendor will give me a case from their stock, and backfill their stock with the CTI warranty replacement. I've rarely had to deal with CTI directly.

    Reloadable casings

    BTW, you should be able to get a warranty replacement for the case.

    A post mortom of a wrecked Estes High Flyer XL

    In my experience, nothing would save the typical plastic chute in this scenario. When a parachute inflates at speed, the amount of stress created is pretty significant, with the majority of it going to the shroud lines.

    Great service from loc

    +1 - My Big Cletus came with centering rings cut for 38mm, and fins cut for 54mm. Jason promptly sent me new rings and MMT tube to fit the fin tangs.

    What keeps you in the hobby?

    Yeah, whoosh-pop can get a bit stale, but here's an incomplete quick list of things that I've done to keep challenging myself. - Build a single rocket that can fly on A-G motors. Light enough for A, still stable for G. This was tougher than I originally thought. - Different recovery methods...

    The MARSA54 Government Shutdown Sale!

    Received and started to look at all the goodies. John, the 4 pin header at the top of the Gyro... Is that a pass-through for additional gadgets? Can I use the Marsanet gadget to enable the remote pyro gadgets with the Tilt module all on the same base by daisy chaining the 4-pin headers?

    The MARSA54 Government Shutdown Sale!

    +1 here. Order in for a 33 w/LCD and Tilt module. That will take some angst out of the multi-stage rockets I was planning.

    Ughhh... Tilt module or Marsa33. What a conundrum...

    FOUND Fliskit Spitfire

    Hopefully Jim will chime in here. He's been very friendly in the past about people taking license with his work. At least he was when I asked permission to do upscales. Since it's no longer in production, and if Jim would jump in and say it's OK... I still have the templates from my kit, and...
