I'm in!

I know some of this stuff may be a bit pricey. I am trying to include a variety. This list will be updated regularly as more ideas come to mind. I won't bombard Papa Elf with emails, so whoever gets my name check back here regularly, maybe something more affordable will show up.

Wishlist:
LOC Iroc :smile: (Hey my Secret Santa may be overly generous)

Scratch built design in my head:
3" body tube - LOC, Binder or blue tube (even better)
54mm body tube - LOC, Binder or blue tube (even better)
3" Nose cone
48" X-Type chute
12" X-type parachute

Hardware: used is fine if you have some you no longer fly, just as long as they are safe and flight worthy
Aerotech compatible: 29/180 case, 38/120 case, 38/480 case - I have closures, but they would be nice too
Any Loki 38mm motor (120, 240, 480)
Aerotech 38mm reload adaptor system

Madcow:
2.6" fiberglass Goblin
3" Little John

3DRocketry:
3" 3-Demon
3" Occulus

Eggtimer Rocketry Classic or Quantum (if it is assembled and operational, that is absolutely okay)
MissileWorks RRC2+
Perfectflite Stratologger CF

18x18 chute protector
Missileworks screw switches
RRC2+ 38mm Li-Ion Modular Sled System
Nomex shock cord protector


I will appreciate anything I get and will incorporate into a build in some form or fashion, it just may take a while.

It would be great if the signup and recipient list were published at least a few days before the black friday sales start so participants could have a chance to better plan what to get for their recipient.
