1702 Eastern Time 11/28/03. Anybody beat that?
31st of September I won mine - so technically I've had mine on pre-order since then - but I'll let you take the crown, 'cos I've not had to pay for my Tres!Originally posted by rbeckey

I have been a B.A.R. since 97. and have flown upwards of some nice K motors, as well as Hybrids, and of all things, these will be my 1st clusters as well. I have ordered (2) each of the Deuces Wild, Richter Recker, and the just released Tres. This next flying season will be a Blackpowder "motor eater" seasonIts a cluster Christmas! I ordered a Deuce and Tres. Hopefully I can have them built in time for the polar bear launch (if we go).
Good man! That's a great plan. If she gives you heat you can always come back and say "See honey - I had to stay home just for your gift!"Originally posted by Johnnierkt
Not much, as one of the Tres is for her "Elvis" rocket that she wants me to make for her...a surprize for her
If only I had those stinkin' patterns......I shoulda grabbed them when I had the chance....Originally posted by jflis
oh and I've already heard of an upscale Tres project in the works...
This came (comes?) up with the Deuce's Wild! many times. In the case of the Tres, I will arrange a specific test at CMASS to test this very thing. I don't suspect she will perform as well as the Deuce's Wild! does, but I would expect she would be stable on two motors. One motor I would suspect she'd be unstable and underpowered. She *is* a large rocket for a single 18mm.Originally posted by Blue_Ninja_150
Jim- I was wondering if the Tres proto has ever flown with 2 or even 1 motor(s). I'm not saying I want to do this, just wondering what would happen in the event of a misfire.
Uh oh! Jim, hurry...go find yourself a piece of wood! This is the kinda talk that just begs for trouble!Originally posted by jflis
as for "has it ever flown with 2 or even 1 motor(s)...", well no because to date i'm like 20 for 20 on the Tres. I can't remember the last time I had a misfire on a cluster rocket. Back in the 70's i'd say...
It will be a birthday present for a friend in Uzbekistan
