... bought a RW Formula 200 at MadCow!!!!!!

With the Independence Day 15% off sale, I couldn't resist. I am going to sell my Variax 705 5-string bass to pay for it.

Let's see ... rocket, retainer, 98 > 75 adapter, 2 pts RocketPoxy, 33" chute protector, and shipping, all for $659.59. I saved $115.16 off of the regular price. Now if only they had SkyAngle Cert XL chutes in stock. :(

I guess I'll pick up some Rocketman chutes and some One Bad Hawk recovery harnesses. A little Home Depot hardware, and I think I will list this as a Featured Flight at LDRS 36!

Time to upgrade from that 75mm4G case too! I am loving my 6G, M1590 for tomorrow.

... picked up enough different sized chutes at a super great price to match to my unbuilt kits.

Thanks Stealth6 for the super deal.

That I540 is an incredible L1 motor --- probably close to the biggest you can fly without going to L2.
Yeah, there's only a few motors w/ a tad more total thrust but substantially lower average.

You have to make the choice to trade the bass for the rocket, but the bass will never get stuck in trees on the Eastern Shore!

Hey....What's not to like...pretty solid looking design.
And it won't need all that tuning.

May as well get something -new- ready for LDRS.
Your bass wouldn't look as cool, unless you set it on fire ala Jimi Hendrix.

Think this is Mitch's 200:

That is a very good point!

But ... I have two other basses, so I think I can lose this one and thus not burden the family budget.

LDRS, here I come!

Madcow finally has the Proline red/black SkyAngle Cert3 XL chutes in stock. I have also been waiting patiently for these to arrive, I had to have the black and red for my project.

Too late for the 15% off, though. Actually, based on advice in another thread, I have ordered a 15' military surplus chute from Always Ready Rocketry for $69.00.

Let us know how it looks when you get it, that is a super deal. The only worry I would have is how well the silk has held up over the past 40-50 years.

Should be a cool build. I'm a fan of the Formula series. I've set a goal to have one of each size, each a different color.
