Better known as Toys R US...

Are they out of the rocket business? I just went buy there today, in search for some Quest motors, and they had maybe (3) Estes kits, and 4 or 5 packs of Estes motors, and that was it!! If I remember correctly, this store use to devote 1/2 a store isle to educational rocketry products including MicroMax, and now they have squat.

I live in "The Rocket City" (Huntsville, AL) and it seems that all the Model Rocket goodies are running low...good thing they opened a Hobbytown USA...but they seem to be awfull pricey.

Even Hobby Lobby here in Huntsville cut their full isle in half, after dropping the Aerotech line...

same here in Sunnyvale, CA. a couple kits, a couple 3x motor packs. I got the last 2 Estes motors bulk packs. although, they have a half dozen AstroCams if anyone wants one!

sadly the Fry's Electronics here seems to have unstocked the rockets. there was one lonely Quest Tracer, a couple micromaxx, and some wadding on the shelf. the shelf tags were still there so can't tell for sure if they cleared it out forever or not.

Me? Drone? Nooooo.... I prefer "rocket mass-production robot" thank you very much! Yes, too many kids have become computer slaves. we have a handfull of kids at our school of 500 who are not madly obsessed with computer games. I am friends with most of them. Pretty sad. I have Flightsim 98, Civilization 3, and the entire Myst series. Myst, Myst masterpiece edition (came free with some other purchase), Riven and Exile. Exile ROCKS. What fun. I hear they are coming out with Mysts 4 and 5!!!!! I like the trollys in Riven. All the little subtle features... I also like the sunners (those BIIIIG fat things that sun themselves on the rock on one of the islands.). The little whark-gallow thing that teaches you the Duni alphabet is rather disturbing..... click click click CHOMP. I just buy all my stuff over the internet.

TRU had a 20% coupon in the last ad. I used it on a Blast Off Pack that was marked at \$27.99, and got the cheapest motors I've had in many years.
