Since Christmas is not too far off, what did y'all put on your Christmas rocketry lists?

I put either a Binder Design Raptor or Samurai, Fliskits Corona, and an Estes Blast Off pack on mine but I'm sure I'll think up a few more items.:D

Maybe even a new RMS 38/120.:D

Lets reveal some of your most wanted rocketry goodies.:D

Hmmm... I made $200 for my birthday, could probably make 180 christmas in gift certs and cash.... Dunno. I prefer money over gifts because if it's not what you wanted, you don't have to exchange it. Plus you don't have to make up your mind about what you want before the 25th :D


But yeah, in spite of my wanting a good Kenwood transceiver, I think I may ask for some kit. Maybe a Thor Jr.

I will probably ask for a lot of motors, as I got for my birthday in October. I have not really thought about what else. Maybe some AT kits. My dad goes to Chicago a lot and picks up a lot of rocketry stuff there since our town is so bum in the way of rocketry things...

First on my list is also a 29/40-120... other than that i was thinking about a Loc Cyclotron (sp?), but have perty much decided against it... I *love* flying bigger stuff, but am not sure i want to go 38mm yet.. I would like $$ to put towards flying lessons though... hope to start those up soon :D And, of course, anything else rocket related is welcome:)

Time to be able to build stuff would be nice!
But I expect I'm not going to get though, so I'll settle for books, or book tokens, and some more RAM for my PC.

My #1 thing is a new mattress and box springs. I've been grounded for 2 major launches due to back problems. A new bed should help. Day-after-Thanksgiving shopping spree will get this item taken care of.

Rocketry-wise, I have some pretty high-end needs ...

Walston or Rocket Hunter or F&L tracker receiver and antenna. 2 transmitters.

Motor casing for Level 3 attempt.

I hope Santa is feeling generous ...

about the same...you can find the shadow 1000 for like, 120 bucks at wal mart, but everywhere else its 150. its super sweet for an air gun. single shot, barrel cock. 1 cock for 1000fps.
