    Does anyone know the delay element length for a RMS 29mm G76-7? Aerotech web pages seem to be down today.

    Thanks,
    John Taylor

    So looks like .0469 inches is 1.194mm. I hope when I get home my caliper has those increments. Its a manual one, not electronic.
    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry I got my decimal mixed up it's .469 inches. Got to get my brain reset. I think I'm OK now.

    My wife has had MS for at least 17 years now. I realize that everyone has different symptoms, but I know how chronic fatigue affects her and I know that when she “hits the wall” it’s time to rest, perhaps chill (literally), and let the body recuperate. I admire you for hanging in there!

    Thanks, sorry to hear about your wife. Chronic fatigue is my main issue also. When I got home I realized I forgot to take my morning meds. Thats why I crashed. I have had it since
    1997. My wife is severely disabled so I will continue working to support us as long as possible.
    Thank you for your kind words. I am praying now for her and your family.

    Thanks! Please introduce yourself to me at a launch sometime! I’ll keep your wife and you in my prayers also. My wife’s worst symptom now is spasticity and sensitivity to heat.
    Best wishes!
    Steve

    Well I flew my new High Tech rocket "Blue Sky" today on the G76-7. It worked perfectly. The delay element change was correct and was right on.

    Thanks, John

    Yeah I'm mainly suffering from Fatigue and also spasticity. Can be painful. I have prayed and will continue for you and yours.
    Right now I am flying with DARS in DFW TX. However I just went to LDRS and plan to go to the FLY FEST, Labor Day 2020 in the Rocket Pasture! Perhaps I will see you there!
