    Let me try to answer the questions in order
    1. Yes, we will be using fliskits.com
    2. Yes, the Saturn 1b is being fast tracked. We are waiting for nosecones.
    3. Why would we put my ugly puss on social media?

    Give them a chance to breathe guys. Its better that they go slow and get things right. This may seem like all they need to do is stuff parts in a bag and ship it, but I've seen what they do at eRockets and it takes time and money to do it right.

    So for all you Fliskit fans, here is the latest.
    The website needs serious work. We have received a lot of feedback in the forums and have hired a third party to completely rebuild it.
    In the meantime, we do have some kits in stock. Below is the list. If you are interested in a kit, please PM me and I will get it shipped. There will be more kits coming online soon, we are waiting for a few minor parts to finish kitting.

    1. You really don't want Eric to post his picture - it would break the internet.
    2. These are two great guys who are firm believers in all sorts of rocketry. Had Jim not founded Fliskits, Ray most likely would have.
    3. For any new designs by Ray, learn to speak Latin

    Keep one thing in mind. Both of these wonderful guys (people I am proud to count among my friends) have demanding full time jobs. Perhaps someday one or both will retire into a life of leisure to be at the communitie's beck and call, just understand that they (like most other vendors in our hobby) may need to adjust focus from time to time.

    Good news to hear FlisKits will continue in some capacity. I think many kits were pretty popular.

    Take your time getting website bugs ironed out, I'd bet 2/3 of vendor headaches have something to do with website foulups (either by the vendors or customers).

    Eric & Ray:

    Thank you!

    I missed (by a couple of months) Jim's announcement and didn't get all the kits that I wanted, mostly to rebuild lost ones.

    I'll add my vote for the Edmonds' kits.

    Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Jon

    Ray and Eric,
    You guys rock! Thanks so much for preserving a cornerstone of our hobby. I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the "New" Flis Kits and can't wait to see what the future brings.

    I had the pleasure of flying with Ray, one of the new owners of Fliskits, yesterday. I got to see a preview of a few new kits. There's some really nice stuff in the works.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence. It has been a struggle trying to get all the kits back online and get the website updated. It is a work in progress, but we are getting there.

    We are continuously bringing kits back as materials allow. Please continue to visit our website at www.fliskits.com for new kit releases. If you want something, but dont see it, contact us through the website. We do have limited pieces and parts for other kits
