    Every time someone posts in this thread I get closer to ordering one of these. What a great looking rocket! Maybe I should do my L3 with one...

    Got my L3 with a MAC kit. 4" Radial Flyer to 13,000' and Mach 1.1. You could keep it a bit lower and slower with this kit. ;)

    The craftsmen ship is impressive on this kit. You will not be disappointed!

    I’m always amazed how fast MAC kits go together! Here are some fin jig ideas and a pic of tonight’s triple dipped internal fillets.

    Going to be waiting on 75mm hardware and reloads at this rate. ;)

    Wow George the inside of your rocket is just as clean as the outside.

    Just started my build last night, I plan on a custom paint job via Airbrush. Something wild while trying to incorporate the Black Fly. Have some pondering to do:)

    Here's my finished 6" Fly. I ended up with a dry weight of 25.6 lbs and right at 1 cal of stability with the motors I have planned. Everything in the kit went together great.

    I am hoping for a maiden flight in early April on an AeroTech RMS-75/5120 L1420R.

    Thank you for the kind words, all! Yep, I'm planning on both ground and on board video, and will certainly share! I made a conformal mount for my 808 camera with a 6-32 weldnut inside the air frame.

    Man that is one purdy Fly! Really looking forward to seeing her lift off the pad with the usual accompaniments of stills video and music. Maybe some Gary Clark Jr. "Numb" building up as she leaves the pad.

    Well the 6" Fly is officially loaded on the website and available as a standard kit. Sorry for the delay. Every time I got a batch done out the door they went. They're on the shelf ready to go. Thank you so much for all the continued support. We couldn't do it without you!!

    ... the guy who wrote those directions is really a very awesome, wicked smart dude. And sexy as hell.
    LoL!

    HED has been a "second standard" since Wildman released the Punisher. It had been done before, but since that release, manufacturers have been doing a lot more HED kits. I love it, just a handful fewer parts, and easier to prep, in my opinion.

    Both the included and the optional thrust plates are premarked or drilled for an RA75 flanged retainer. And yes on the Avbay rods. PM sent.

    No rocsim but there is an Ork. file. Files for all our kits can be seen and downloaded from the "Links" page of our website.
