    Email sent.
    My list:

    Bits and Bobs:
    1/4" tubular kevlar, just the cord, nothing fancy
    2.1" (54mm) PML Quantum tube, at least 18" to repair Callisto, along with a phenolic coupler.
    30" "ThinMil" type chute, would like to try Rocketman's new hexagonals, Lime green preferred, Yellow or Black works too, really I'm not too picky
    A 38mm sled that holds a Quark and 400 MaH 2 cell LiPo
    54mm RRC2+ modular sled, 9volt
    PML HAMR 38
    Aeropack 38L
    38mm Slimline
    Shock cord protectors always handy

    One thing I am looking for now is some sort of modular sled or bay for a Quantum that can easily be moved from rocket to rocket. Same goes for a 54mm RRC2+ or Quark. As short as possible. Just haven't had time lately to design anything.

    Mac Performance:
    Loki 38mm nozzle holder or two
    3" - 54mm nose cone bay kit
    54mm - 38mm nose cone bay kit
    Pluto SLAM (Why not!?)

    Motor stuffs:
    CTI Pro24 3G motor
    CTI Pro29 3G motor - the starter set would be great!
    Loki 38/480 case or complete motor
    AT 29/100 case or motor
    AT 38mm plugged bulkhead
    Loki 38mm plugged bulkhead
    Aerotech motors:
    G76G, H165R, H128W
    Loki Motors:
    H144, G94, G66
    Quest Q-Jet D16-4
    Estes B4-2

    Eggtimer:
    Quantum, Quark, Eggfinder Mini, Proton

    I am good on kits but I can toss some in the mix, short fat and draggy so I can fly them in my yard with my daughter
    Madcow 4" Squat, this will complete my Madcow 4" short fatty collection
    Squirrel works Acorn, Ajax
    LOC Precision, any size Magg, Park Flyer EZE, park fly Hawk, Lil Nuke, Aura
    1.6” fiberglass Cowabunga
    Pemberton Little Bucky Jones
    Fliskits L-13
    3drocketry Nautilus III
    Mach 1 kits: Pulse, SaberHawk, Rim 66 Standard BT55, Boost BT50, Razer 50, Callisto BT50, XCellerator BT55
    MAC Black Fly, any size; Pluto SLAM..notice I listed this twice LOL

    Long list, yeah I know. Just offering a variety of options. Any and all will be appreciated. I will likely post an updated list just before emails are sent.

    Finally, please pray for traveling mercies for Jess and I. Our car started getting transmission problems, so I am hoping we make it home. I cant afford breaking down.
