Nick...expect some reviews from me. :D :D

Nice list, but the Fliskits list seems to be lacking a tad. What about the Long Overdue, the Nomad (not sure if that one's on EMRR yet), or whatever else comes up. Anyways, this list get updated as vendors add more rockets to their lists?

You forgot Semroc :). Also, The Squirrel Works Red Baron already has a review... or are you looking for more reviews?

Yep, I looked at FlisKits. The Nomad has been posted. I personally have a Long Overdue (but will be delayed in getting it built and reviewed) and everything else, the TRF folks (for the most part) have put reviews on EMRR.

Yes, I watch for released throughout the year and try to add the NEW stuff.

Also, as a point of interest, I'd love some others to do "comparison" articles of similiar rockets.

Here are some thoughts (with some examples):

LONGNECK's
Estes Mean Machine
ASP Tall Boy
Flis Richter Recker
Aerotech Mirage

3-Stager's
Estes Comanche-3
Flis Nomad

2-Stager's
SemRoc Arcon-Hi
Quest Aerospace - Zenith II
FlisKits - Cheetah
Estes Industries - CC Express

Boost Glider's

Rocket Glider's

Helicopter's

Egg Lofter's

etc.

Nick




Thanks,
Nick

Opps on both. I meant to Add Semroc. I also meant to add ThrustAero (but I'm having some trouble seeing what kits they have available... the website doesn't seem to tie well with what I've seen on TRF)

Thanks for the feedback.

Is that Quest Space Cruiser actually the "Super Cruiser"? If so, I am in the finishing stages of one right now. Would be happy to do a review.

For anybody who is worried about not having these to review, you can always write reviews for all those other rockets that you have already built :) You get less entries in the EMRR contest for products are already reviewed, but even those can build up.

Just wondering if the Quest Aerospace Commander is the same one shown on all sites that I have run across as simple the Quest Commander (12.75" streamer recovery). I've just finished construction on that one and am compiling a review. As soon as I get a launch with it, I will post it to the site.

I'm expecting a 4" 1/30 Neubauer Gemini Titan to be delivered any day now. Just hope I can stay home long enough to build it. I travel a lot.
