After spending a lot of time with Apogee's website, decided to visit the place to pick up my first large rocket kit. I can report to the forum that the place is very well organized and staffed by "rocket people". Discussed stability concepts with the young lady in the front and picked up some good ideas for later, when I hope to explore cameras, altimeters and trackers. The stable of rockets in their showroom have obviously been flown, which I find to be reassuring. Met the owner, Tim, and have to say that he runs a tight ship. There is a meeting room in the front that looks like it hosts educational classes, everything is super tidy. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place based on my positive experience. Oh, I purchased a Zephyr, some G78G-4 motors, a 29/38 adapter and a 38mm retainer. I asked about black friday sale and saw them cringe, so not expecting any specials but I am satisfied with the prices on my purchase. They are clearly a mail order operation primarily and have a professionally run warehouse and shipping station, so I would not hesitate to order from them. For a new BAR like me, this works.
