    I just placed an order for some nice G12 tubing from a rocketry vendor.
    What?!?! Is stealth6 gonna start building and flying again?

    Sadly, no. I'm still in "I used to fly rockets" mode for the foreseeable future.

    So, why did I just buy some nice 2.6" filament wound airframe?
    Well, I'm building a pair of new stage monitor speakers (I do live sound), and I needed a few lengths of a certain sized tubing for tuned ports. So, where does my mind go when I'm thinking "what can I use for this?" Yep, I thought of rocket airframe.

    Some things become ingrained, don't they?

    still flying in my mind,
    s6

    Maybe do a rocket themed stage monitor? You’ll get to build an airframe without the expense of flying or burden of crashing it till you get back on the hobby. Plus one cool conversation starter.

    I vote the remainders be used to build a rocket named Thiele and Small....
