Haven't heard or seen much from Mr. John Bean lately. Maybe he's working on something new and improved for Santa to deliver? How about our other suppliers of gizmos and toys, you got anything for us to look forward to this year?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm wondering too..

I'm also wondering about a new kits.. Maybe a few "scale" kits that'll make some HPR guys eagerly flashing $$$.. (oh, I don't know.. a Madcow 4" AMRAAM or 4" Harm?!!) Maybe a few exotic / foreign kits too.. (like an Exsocet or something from SAAB?!)

You mean John Beans. Mr. Bean is something else entirely.

Still looking for that elusive 38mm-to-29mm 2-stage kit... I'm too lazy to scratch build one.

Elusive? Here's one, PML Mini BBX w/Terrier Booster. I have one built but I have yet to fly it, nice kit.

I'm just hoping that some 75mm CTI reloads become available by the end of the year. Preferably sooner.

38mm-29mm 2 stage - Sabrina endorsed/Wildman Kit ~Vaporware~


I heard some rumor that they are bringing back the Super Big Bertha as a Pro Series II in 29mm.


... but that's just a rumor...

I'm really hoping for a smaller JLCR that fits more comfortably in a 38mm tube that also does all the things the Altimeter Three does.

Shoot, why not have the capability to fire an ejection charge while you're at it?

And GPS tracking.

That'll do.

It wouldn't survive being dragged around the playa at Lucerne Dry Lake. Looking for a FG kit, I probably should have mentioned that...

Saw some new, upcoming GPS trackers on Missile Works' site the other day. Called the T3 GPS Telematics Tracking system: https://www.missileworks.com/store/#!/T3-GPS-Telematics-Tracking-System/p/90226446/category=19848147

Here's the blip from the web site - looks like it's coming soon:

The T3 Tracker System (Tiny Telematics Tracker) is a simplified and scaled down version of our RTx/GPS system. Even though the T3 system is our lower cost "Buy and Fly" tracker system, it still uses the same proven core components as its big brother RTx, specifically:

- uBlox7 GPS Engine
- 1/4 watt XBee Radio Modems
- HC-06 Bluetooth Module

The T3 system relies on your Bluetooth ready Android device and uses any NMEA/Bluetooth stream reading Android app (Blue GPS / Rocket Track / Rocket Locator) which are all available in the Google Play Store. The T3 system is based upon the original "Rocket Track" open hardware project.

And data logging

I would be happy with a JLCR that beeped altitude on recovery.

If not, and you need something for your L3, get in touch with Ted Chernok. I'm sure he would lend you a case and sell you a Loki load. He usually comes to Red Glare, so might make for an easy pick up.
