Been some threads on here about TLP recently. I don't have an answer for that.

Sirius rocketry had a few TLP kits still in stock last I looked.

I thought they were temporarily defunct, but there was a guy at a launch couple weekends ago that swore he just got a Hawk from the website last month.

Go figure? There have been several threads about this, Mike is right.

The owner is ill and no longer able to manage the business.
It is for sale, no kits are being produced.
What ever you can find for sale by vendors is all there is.
Hopefully, someone will take it over and continue operations.
It's a Nitch market for us builders who doesn't demand instant completion.
Good luck in your quest for their kits.

Hopefully people are taking the time to scan the instructions, fin patterns, etc so people will be able to clone the kits in case TLP doesn't rebound.

I haven't actually looked but are there "accurate" Rocksim files for their kits?
I actually looked at the Openrocket and Rocksim libraries on RocketReviews. :) Accurate ? Don't know but if I use one these files I check weights and dimensions against what I built and modify accordingly anyway. And say "ataboy" or "atagirl" to the kind stranger who went to the trouble to build and post the file.
