Alright I just received my kit yestery from ehobbies...launcher, silo, three rocs..engines.
But now im itching to build my own.
But before i start it might help to know some general things.

first off i know the roc needs to be very light but whats a good range to keep it within?

whats the best material for fins? craft board? i have some 1mm. posterboard type paper..its moderately stiff. very light.

Where to buy BTs?

nose cone material?
Ive heard that balsa is a bit to ..porous? for these small rocs.
what material works best?

oh yeah and while im at it :D ...where do you get your engines?
ehobbies sells them but i haven't found anywhere else yet.

thnx in advance.
