    Good. FAI only cares that its less than 40N but NAR states it must be on the approved list. I will attend at least 1 of the 3 proposed FAI SM contests in 2019 and if there are some to spare have them shipped to someone stateside to hold for me.
    Thanks.

    Ok, I'll be at naram if someone you know will be there I could hand them off and not have to ship them but up to you.

    Great. I can't say which events I can attend but I think one or more of the gang may be at NARAM. Working on it. ;)

    I had 3 good flights with the StratoDart at Hellfire-23. The first flight was on a reloadable E6. The next 2 flights used the AT single-use E6. On the single-use motors I used a small piece of thermalite dropped into the motor and then a G2Q2 igniter. It worked every time. On the first 2 flights I did two down-nose maneuvers during boost to take the glider away from the crowd. This also flattened out the trajectory. The bad part is that I was not able to guide the model anywhere close back to where I was standing and I had a long walk to retrieve the glider. The 3rd flight I did only one down-nose motion and brought the glider closer to my gazebo, so the walk was shorter. On the second and third flight I had at least one roll, but it was unintentional.

    Did you not find the igniters wrapped in cardboard that were in the box? I had to wrap those separately because Aerotech just shipped me a hundred igniters in one small baggie.

    Marc McReynolds got a great shot of my large Orion starliner at naram 60 on approach after boosting on one of the prototype single use long burn g11st motors. Orion on final approach.jpg

    I found the igniters. I pushed one igniter in and I think that I bent it and it lost continuity. I then decided that I wanted to make sure I had good ignition the first time. If an igniter goes bad at one of our club launches, I need to wait for the range to re-open, which takes a long time.

    That Orion Starliner looks terrific! You need to give us a full report.

    Is there any change that these G11 motors will someday become commercially available?

    Gary said all three, the g8, g11 and g12 will be certified, hopefully in 30 days...I prefer the g12 because the sustain is high enough to maintain vertical.
