    Good guess CBrarick, but not the Orbital Transporter... another great idea though.
    Made the call tonight, we’re going to include both 54mm & 38mm CNC
    Price point and shipping, those are clear challenges on kit #2. USPS priority shipping is estimated to be around $27.80 USA, and $124 ROW, it’s well over the magic weight. As for the price point, considering what it includes, it’s a great price point.

    FYI we are expecting to save builders $150 on the kit #2 run, over a builder just ordering all the parts in a one off scratch build.

    Obviously we’re still in prototyping mode, so a few things might still change over the next couple of days.

    Hi D, Kit #2 is not the Vector V... I even forgot about that Centuri kit. The Vector V always looked deceptively simple. If we upscale it we might be able to get a short 98mm to fit. :cool:

    Well, I'm stumped, so I'll wait patiently and check back periodically.

    Just a noob BAR here intrigued by this thread. I’ll guess the Estes Starblazer X-20.

    We plan to have all the latest prototype kit parts in shop this weekend. Then will test fit, take some pics, verify basic dry weights, put the finishing touches on the announcement post text with the kit details.

    One of the feature of kit #2 is constructed very different than the original due to upscaling requirements, and has gone through numerous iterations as we fine tune the solution. Deceptively simple from outward appearance.

    Then the rush to finish the assembly recommendations for it.

    Cool! Two different BT sizes, 11 fins, rare Estes design! Also I have been looking at doing a BT80H upscale of the same rocket using an Aerotech nose cone. HP isn’t my thing quite yet but... the 38mm option in your version is . Cheers!

    Do you think we should go ahead and start the interest thread?... just won't have pics of the final parts.

    Why not just fly the crap out of it? That will give it some hit points.
