    That are not finished all the way. Still have a lot of work to get a couple ready for LDRS. Still building Avbay's as the rocket airframe are boxed up.

    The housekeeping staff did a great job cleaning up after rocket mess. I tipped them well, and often. No complaints received.

    Are you one of those people who only needs 2 hours sleep a night?

    The box of rockets all made it home, safe and sound. Been building Avbay's for the few that will make it to LDRS. Going to start filling the fillets nice and smooth. Then shoot a couple coats of primer. Only 2 weeks left, and a lot of work to do. 0502181148a.jpeg 0424182145a.jpeg

    Those are beefy terminals, do you have a good track record using banana jacks that way?

    They are on the medium duty side of things. I don't actually use the banana plug side of the "Terminal Binding Post". I insert the charge leads through the hole, wrap it a couple time, then tighten the knob down. They have worked very well on a half dozen flights so far.

    The other terminals I made with 6-32 hardware. Work great and durable, Real cheap. Smaller then the banana plug type. But do require a tool to tighten.
