    For now, the easiest thing to do is to PM me and we can discuss. I have been told by our website developer that it is close to going live and you will be able to order directly from.the site

    Sorry. This has been bugging me for a while. Got my feet 'n inches messed up. Should have read 4 x 8' lengths. Wouldn't want anyone to go off half cocked!
    Cheers

    So here's the latest. We couldn't wait any longer to get the new website up and running, so we have a bare bones version at www.fliskits.com. Not all the kits are listed, nor are the educational series. We are working hard to get everything up and running. If you want something that is not listed, please drop us a note on the website and we will do our best to fulfill. We have many more kits available than are listed, so we are having the website updated regularly.

    Thank you for your patience as we continue to ramp the company back up.

    So exciting to see this all come together! Can’t wait to see more.

    Special thanks to all who helped FlisKits grow and to Eric and Ray for keeping it going!

    Hmmmm. That website should be down.
    We are updating the available kits this weekend as we bring more kits back online

    Speaking of FlisKits being back, here's the Frick 'n Frack I picked up at URRF, I finally started on it last weekend, working on paint now.

    cheers!

    Eric, regarding the website:
    When I click on kits by type/multi stage on the right hand menu I get "no products found". Shouldn't the Frick 'n Frack be in there?
    If you like the Frick 'n Frack, you might also like it's little brother the Trifecta (assuming they bring it back). Mini engine powered three stager.

    I added the nose cone cuz it just didn't seem complete without one. Removes for flight.:D
    Filling the slots and grain now, gonna paint it red white and blue.
    Cheers.

    We do have some kits in very limited quantities that are not currently on the website as we only have 1 or 2. We are working hard to get the pieces and parts to bring additional kits online. Balsa wood and balsa nosecones seem to be the limiting factor in most cases. We have chosen not to go the way of plastic as we do not want to cheapen the quality. If you are interested in a kit that is not currently on the website, please PM me

    Stay tuned for a potential upcoming Black Friday sale as we get closer

    I know you guys have your hands (more than) full with getting this company ramped up, but nonetheless might I humbly suggest some website improvements:
    1) Better photos. Many of the rockets have only a tiny postage stamp-sized drawing.
    2) Fix for the square photos on the big listing page. When you have long skinny pictures of rockets, they are being auto-cropped to a square an you only see the middle of the rocket, which is.... kinda useless. E.g., this Mako photo:
    upload_2019-10-1_19-5-24.png
    3) Some info for the rockets? Size, weight, motors, etc.? As far as I can see there is nothing there right now but a brief description and skill level.

    Together, these three items make it pretty unsatisfying browsing the site if you're new to Fliskits or at least not already familiar with all the details of the kits.

    Bonus 4) alias the homepage back to www.fliskits.com. Having WPRESS in the URL is really ugly.
