3)quest

number 1 must be Fliskits - if you have done business with them you know how well they treat customers - placed my order on tuesday and it arrived thursday. everything was in the order even a catalog which is something the others forget to do these days.

Estes
Quest
Aerotech

For some reason those are the only manufacturers that are stocked in the hobby shops up here. I have never ordered directly from the manufacturers or hobby shops in the US to here. I wonder if its a hassle, if htere are custom clearance fees or procedures or do they just show up to your door? Can anybody give me some feedback on this? Thanks!

FlisKits for low power,
LOC for mid
and PML for high.
That trio would just about have you covered as far as rockets go.
Motors? You're stuck with the big guys.

A big NO!

We have to keep patching them and they will still crash all the time for no apparent reason.

Balsa Machining
ASP

It'd be all parts, not kits, and I reckon I could do LPR forever with just those two.
