    It's a link to a very specific youtube video, because the rule I quoted was completely made up on the spot.

    This is to show how the nozzle mounts on the MMT. The nozzle will not only act as a cool tailcone, but will act as a 3rd centering ring and as a thrust plate as well with it pushing up against the body tube edge. This will ensure the nozzle is tied in with the entire rocket. Ideally the Aeropack tail cone will be about 1/2” in from the back to keep the “cool looks” of the nozzle without the motor sticking out.

    Buddy,

    Is there enough room to get your fingers around the retainer cap? Doesn't look like a lot of clearance between the cap and tail cone.

    There is plenty of room to get the retainer off. But if you have bigger fingers, the user has the ability to shove the tube slightly further out to make it easier.

    Finally getting a chance to work on the “Recovery Package” this is done to save on the kit and gives a opportunity to save 45% off retail price with all the needed recovery gear. Will be sold for $100.00, originally would be $181.00. It’ll include:
    3- 1/4” Forged EyeBolts
    6- 3/16” Stainless SteelQuick Links
    1- 4ft Standard Parachute in Red, White and Blue
    2- 15ft 1,200lb Braided Kevlar Shock Cords with 3 loops each
    1- 1ft Pro Experimental Drogue Parachute
    2- 12” Kevlar Flame Shield

    Invoice me for the hole chicken dinner and shipping and I'll pay you via PayPal, credit card, or send you a check, your choice. I know you have my contact information...

    I responded “I’m interested” a ways back there. What do I need to do the “pull the trigger”? I’d like to add the recovery stuff too.

    I'm confused. Your first post said that it was a kit that would include the recovery items, and now it is extra?

    I was planning on it being that way in April, but many have said that they’d just like the kit, as they have Parachutes already. So this will be the best of both worlds, if you’d like the recovery portion we’ll have it for 45% off, if not just grab the kit. I hope this makes sense too you, it’s been a long journey (about 9 months) of working these details out. Thanks

    There may be a few left, not sure I’ll have to count.

    You’ve been added to the list back than. The release will be in 10-12 Days here.

    Hello Buddy,

    I'm also interested, but I don't need recovery.

    630-254-3953

    Everybody's already got my Wilson F/X number, so who cares.

    I can’t even tell you guys how amazing Stickershock is! On Saturday, 6-29-19, I had emailed him about getting all 100 decals made for me, in those 6 days, he managed to made all of them, and ship them out to me over a holiday, already receiving them in the same week!

    So, it still isn't clear to me what the process is to order a Miss Riley kit. I put my name in the hat a while back for a kit, but am unsure what happens next...

    I’m currently working on the detailed instructions, along with launching one on the 13th for launch photos, after that I plan to have them live for purchase on around the 16th. At that time the link will be sent to everyone.

    Will the people that already got their name on "the list" have first dibs? If so, how quickly do they need to pay before their kit is forfeited?

    I plan on sending the link to those whom are on the list first by a day or two before sending it out online, but by the looks of it that may not even happen as there’s so many people interested. The certificate #’s will be given out in order that the kits are sold.

    Working on the Rock Sim for the Miss Riley, here is the start of it, for those whom are experts at it (not me), let me know if there's something I should modify.
