    So where do we start our build thread and what do we include in the topic to make it searchable?

    have a new 24mm version of sealed AVbay that is almost done- all plastic and weighs next to nothing.... Old 'heavy' version is in my albums. Post when last holes are drilled.

    No room in your inbox....
    That one is 54mm, I am also doing a 38. I could go up to 98 with larger raw material.
    Message me with your specifications including calipered ID of tube.

    Not sure if this is a US only comp, happy to share even if I cannot join. Also I may have started early. I flew my first DD last week so thought I might as well show you all. The rocket is a Wildman JR and I've fitted it out with an EggTimer and Raven 3.
