Thanks for the list.

I just briefly went through some of the entries.

Policy is not to place someone twice if they are both manufacturers and sellers as most manufacturers are also vendors. If a link just forwards to another, then it is not listed.

Parachutes for planes doesn't cut it.

Some of the links are out of date without even clicking on them ( ie. aol).

But it is 2 days before I am going to LDRS. I am doing some new kits and I have yet to start packing for my trip on Sunday.

So I will update the list next Tuesday or Wednesday when I get back.

Paratech apparently no longer makes parachutes for model rockets, although they still list them on their home page. Entry removed.

Some of the links are out of date without even clicking on them ( ie. aol).
Rob Edmond's link has been revised.

All of the links were verified and are live. As I mentioned in the post, Retro Rocketry still has a web page, but I don't know if they are actually still in business.

But it is 2 days before I am going to LDRS. I am doing some new kits and I have yet to start packing for my trip on Sunday.
Maybe I'll see you there.

So I will update the list next Tuesday or Wednesday when I get back.
I was trying to be helpful, not critical of your effort.

MarkII, okay. Back from LDRS and doing this list.

Exclusive so not added:
acme, dynastar, surefire

Not operating:
defyg, (actually removed from shops), model minutes, new way space,retro, rocket dynamics?, rocket in a box, shadow, shecter, trojan, launch magazine,

duplicates so not added:
leading edge, apogee peak of flight, extreme rocketry, liberty, narts,

removed ebay as too general. P&R are planes, SFSM Industries is a motor,ara press seems too general, water rockets?, FAI is too general.

BTW, were you at LDRS?

It appears that you and I have different ideas regarding what constitutes a rocketry resource. Well, OK, it's your list, so you populate it any way that you want so that it reflects your personal opinion. I guess that's why this thread is in "The Watering Hole" rather than somewhere else on the forum; it is essentially an editorial. I'm not sure why a Watering Hole piece is given the status of a Sticky, though. Doing so elevates one forum member's personal opinion above all others and gives it an Official TRF stamp.

People should not rely on a list to do everything for them, researching is an important skill which rocketeers should learn to be good at.

The Watering Hole (5 Viewing)
An area where general discussions can take place, that don't necessarily fit well into other categories. This can relate to rocketry, general chat, or any other topic not prohibited by TRF rules and guidelines.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I read the definition quoted above as identifying The Watering Hole as the "general chit chat and soapbox speechifying" section of TRF. I didn't realize this at first, but in the current thread you are declaring your list of "rocketry resources" from the top of your own soapbox. That's OK with me, and I apologize for my error. I just don't understand why any one member's "soapbox speech" in the crowded saloon/cafeteria of The Watering Hole should be singled out and elevated to the status of a "Sticky," though.

National bodies- NZRA

That url (rockets.co.nz) is outdated and has never been updated for 10 years, alot of places on the internet still link to it.

New website is here http://nzrocketry.org.nz

Some folk wanted such a resource. Sunward volunteered to maintain it.

Under 'Rocketry Software' the VCP link is dead. I'll come up with a new one sometime.

Angelo,

I just checked out this thread for the first time since right after TRF got started up again.

You've done a masterful job.

Thank you.

N3rd just got a clean bill of health from Google; no longer being reported as an attack site, so the link is safe to add back in.

BTW, the site is coming down for a day or so sometime this week for some updates.

Hi Angelo:
What's Up Hobbies is just shown in the ships page yet they continue to manufacturer the Polecat Aerospace product line. My suggestion would be to leave Polecat in the manufacturers area but point the URL to the polecat section of the what's up hobbies site.

The same holds true with Leading Edge. They are a shop that carries multiple vendors but also manufacture their own line of products. I would suggest duplicating their entry under both shops and manufacturers.

My rational for duplicating the entries is this:
-when you're looking for a new unique product you (or, at least, I do) tend to go to the manufacturer for the latest offerings. So, if you/I are looking for something interesting to add to the build pile then I'll cruise the manufacturers list.

-when you/I are looking for a product that is in stock the manufacturer may not be the best place to look and so that is when the shops list comes into play. If a shop carries a significantly varied selection of manufacturer's products I want to know about it so I can shop around to see who has product in stock.

I think we should reward What'sUp and LeadingEdge for bringing new and interesting products to the market by showing them in the manufacturers listing. I think we also need to keep customers aware that they offer a much broader line of products from other manufacturers.

Thanks for your consideration.
Best wishes,
Will
