Hey all,
Thinking of setting some new challenges for myself in rocketry and looking for build technique advice relative to NAR or FAI competitions. I looked through the thread topics and didn’t catch much in the way of people’s builds. Happy to be pointed to books, websites, videos, or threads I missed.

Hi, Drew !

I, also, enjoy NAR competition, especially free-flight boost gliders / rocket gliders, egglofters, PMC, & Craftsmanship events ( Scale / Sport Scale, etc. ).

I created this thread with a lot of glider information . . .

Nowadays, the biggest challenge is finding a club that actually flies NAR competition.
