    Engineering is hard :p
    I have my own lathe now and I hope to fly some 18mm EX motors in December. Depending on how much time I get I may be able to fly them at the first battlepark launch.

    Here you go. Forward closures are finalized as well. Still need to make some steel nozzles for myself and work on making graphite nozzles to sell.

    I am so glad to say that Sandy and I are most definitely going to be at the Higgs launch..
    We'll be there for the day on Saturday only..
    It's always so exciting going back to Higgs with MDRA..
    What a great field, what a great club..
    Always such a sweet launch with the MDRA crew,,
    always such great hospitality from Tommy Higgs..

    We'll see you all on Saturday.. ( Can't wait, lol..)

    Teddy

    I just checked the weather..
    A bit cold, but still beautiful...
    It's gonna be some launch...

    Clear skies and sunny, but we'll be watching the wind. May hit 16 MPH. Dress warmly!

    Wind forecast looks bad, especially Saturday. Just cancelled my hotel reservation.

    Gonna be cold and very windy. Fortunately, the rockets I'll be launching don't have much paint on them.

    No. The motor hasn't been made yet. I was toying with the idea of bringing the rocket as a show and tell. But I'll wait for a nicer day for that.
