    Fiberglass motor cases - ISO info (old stuff not the new DMS. etc)

    Pete has been moving house and all sorts of rocket crap have been appearing, and then working their way over to my barn for storage. This move has helped to get the remaining Numbsters back on track (ie... flying rockets again and thinking of mixing...), and it is amazing what I am finding going...

    AMW Slightly Bigger Daddy.. slow winter build thread

    It arrived over the weekend, gave it a bath and a 'babies first weight' run today, and then fed the raw values into Rocksim. No epoxy or anything, but I did go with a 1.5lb nose weight.

    AMW spec 75-7600 case only must be flyable

    I am in need of a 75-7600 case, I don't care if it is ratty looking, carbon scorched, etc., etc., I just need it to be flyable Yup I have contacted AG-71 for a new one, but I will still buy your old(er) one if the price is right. Gorilla Green would be perfect!
