Looks like you have a good group of guys and gals here so I thought I would join in the fun!

Name is Chris and I am getting back into rocketry after a looong absense. I've been building FG body tubes and nose cones as well as doing EX motors. I currently have no affiliation with any formal clubs or associations but that may change. Well rocketry wise I have none, I am a pilot and have a plane so of course there are those clubs and blah blah blah. Looking forward to finding some local people around Indianapolis to build and fly with. I have a 35x70 shop in the back of the house if anyone wants a place to build without the wife yelling at you about your "toys" laying around the house. Hahah.

Thank you everyone! Hope to be here a while.

Chris

Welcome to the forum! Where are you located? What sorts of EX motors are you making?

Sorry- just saw Indianapolis. There's a few groups down there, plus you're within driving distance for Midwest power!

Mainly 38 and 54 and a little 29. Maybe 75 one of these days. Lots of Wimpy Red and some of Dan's Plain Jane. But I'm all over the place.

Welcome. Look forward to you jumping into the mix...the conversational mix, not the motor mix.

Welcome and good to have you back in the fold.

No club...? Wow, did you go about doing Ex on your own?
Well I've always made my own black powder, that turned into making my own fireworks. This year I realized I should read and study as much as I can and see what I could do in rocketry. I started with Terry McCreary's book and a firefox HTPB kit. Several more books later here I am. I have always loved chemistry and science in general.
