Day before my birthday! SWEET!
Both of which fall on a weekend, sufficiently long before finals, so I will make sure to put on a good launch.

That is a really great idea, Bob.

Everyone should get out and fly something on National Model Rocket Day!

Why not recommend the best motors for this size and weight rocket?:

A8-5 instead of A8-3.

A6-4 instead of A8-3.

B6-6 instead of B6-4.

And don't list the C6-5 since you have the C6-7 listed.

Tryed to cover the gamet with what folks are able to find in qty. A6-4 should have been added though. How many hobby shops carry B6-6? let alone WM?

Wal-Mart: good luck finding ANY recommended motor on any day! ;)

Most hobby shops have A8-5 and B6-6 motors.

Michaels craft stores don't carry the A8-5 and B6-6.

I would still list them as preferred and the shorter delays as "for windy weather or if you can't find the preferred motors".
