    KSC Visit Recommendations?

    I'm thinking of visiting KSC early next year, and looking for recommendations. This would be my first visit. I see there are 5 different bus tours, including a "Mega" tour, all run by http://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/, I presume that's the official/only one. Tickets are at...

    TMRK Pegasus Finished

    This was a kit I saw years ago, and really interested me. It's scale, it's currently flying, and the satellite launch concept is just cool. http://www.orbital.com/SpaceLaunch/Pegasus/ I purchased this from lawndartman in the yard sale here a while back (thanks!). True Modelers Rocket Kits...

    Upscale Semroc Hydra VII

    Fellow Semroc Fans, This was supposed to be ready for NARAM-54, for entry in the classic model competition. Well, it didn't get done in time, and I couldn't make it, but at least it was completed before years end! This is a 1.55x upscale of the classic Semroc Hydra VII, that started with...

    Sirius & Apogee Saturn V Comparison?

    Looking for a good sized Saturn V kit, so I've been reading through the new and old threads here regarding the Apogee & Sirius kits. I get the cost, weight, and motor differences. What isn't clear to me is if one is noticeably different as far as scale details, and overall build difficulty...

    H128W Instructions Goof

    So, I purchased an Aerotech H128W reload kit this last weekend from our on-site vendor. Took it out of the package, and looked for the little instruction note that indicates a medium (10s) delay is included. You know, just to double-check, before I drill it out. This is normally right below...

    Grain Geometry 101

    So, I happened to be studying the thrust curves in the Aerotech catalog, and became curious about the different thrust curves of SU vs Hobbyline RMS G motors. I'm sure most of you know this, but it took me a bit of head scratching, until it became clear that this is due to the grain geometries...

    ValueRockets price increase?

    After weeks of indecision, I went to order some D10 & D21 motors today, and noticed that the 3 pack prices are $17.49. They were $15.90, I think just last week. This is the only place to get these 3 packs, right?

    F20W Econojet motor data file

    I was looking at the F20 engine data in my RASP .eng file, and the total impulse doesn't match published F20W Econojet motor. The F20 .eng file at thrustcurve.org specifically mentions the F20EJ, and matches the data on nar.org, which makes me wonder if I have the right data. Is the...

    Aerotech IQSY Tomahawk

    Hi, Just finished building my first Aerotech kit, the IQSY Tomahawk. It was an impulse buy at a LHS this week for $45, which seemed like a good deal. It wasn't marked down, but looked like it had been sitting there for 15 years, so that was probably retail back then. Wish I would have read...

    How large is your motor stash?

    I'm not sure when it started; it may have been when the supplies of small boosters was dwindling; whenever I would see packs of A3/A8/A10 boosters, I'd pick some up. Then there were rumors of the B6-0 going away, so I began to hoard them. Or it may have started when I discovered blast-off...

    What did you forget?

    This poll was inspired by the Madcow Bomarc thread and countless other threads regarding our embarrassment when we discover we forgot something, usually in front of our fellow fliers; What have you forgot to do on a rocket the most often, discovered only when you get to the range or after you...

    PemTech Bucky Jones

    So last fall I posted a poll about which mid-power kit to use a birthday gift for. The poll winner, IIRC, was the Madcow Jayhawk, which was sorely tempting, but my heart was won by the Bucky Jones. I spent a while going through the destructions, they were so entertaining that I didn't start...
