Was the AT DMS motors on sale? The sale said reloads so I was thinking no?
I don't believe they were on sale, I did not see any single use on sale. Hoping they will be on Sat., need some.

Edit: Guess I missed them then, just looked at the announcement/ad page nothing listed there as far as DMS goes.

CTI reloads 20% off retail prices

Aerotech High Power reloads 35% off retail prices

Regular White Lightning High power reloads 40% offWildman Holiday Sales retail prices

Well, the deals, as expected. Were too good to pass up. I had no intention on buying a kit but when I got home from work at 620pm and checked the email. Seeing the Gizmo XL DD at $350 and the Demon5 at $299, I knew I was in for a struggle. It was a hard decision but ultimately not having 98mm hardware (yet) was the deciding factor. I told myself "But Brian, you know most certainly the Saturday sale will have deep discounts on hardware like in years past!!" I had to ignore that devil on my shoulder though, for now at least. Next year, might be a different story.

The Demon 5" just looked wayyyy too good to pass up though. Then of course, buying that meant I had to buy some loads for it. Wanted to grab an M2200G but alas, not until my L3 is complete.

Thank you Tim and Jackie and hope you both have a wonderful holiday!!

Question though, Tim. Did we do well by you this year? Did your club members make you smile this year?


My purchases last night....I am literally so excited to build this kit. This rocket looks amazing!!

Wildman Demon 5"
75mm flanged Aeropack retainer
L1090W reload for my 54/2800 case
L1520T reload for my 75mm hardware

And check out that L1520!!!! That thing is TOUGH!!!!

What were the details on the Wildman Mach 3? Not a typo I assume, something new?

I might have missed it, but what's it look like? No pic is loading for some reason.

Same here. I couldn't find the I284W. So I just bought 36 other motors instead. :p
Yeah, I just replaced them with a mix of J350's and I161's, but really would have liked the 38/600. I don't think I totaled 36...just 24 :)

I was at Thanksgiving meal and missed it. Is there a Black Friday sale?

Those are for the guys wives who spent too much on rocketry related goods. You can have your message custom engraved and hope like hell it works!!!
That should seriously be a kicker for club members.

I pulled the trigger on the Lance Beta! It should look great with a set of NCR styling from sticker shock.

It not clear to me if the kit comes with bulk plates for an avionics bay like the ones in the picture.
Me too... We'll find out. We discussed the kit last week. He was leaning towards the Punisher design (one long BT with HED). He can't slot over 30". So to make the dado slots for upper fins, he had to cut the body tube into two pieces. And since it's 54mm mmt, he made an AV bay.

True... But also true is that it's a prepay, preorder sale. So there's no rush to purchase at 6am because they won't run out of anything. So... Enjoy those egg McMuffins and then browse.

Exactly right - both were on sale, though DMS's were discounted -35% inline with all reloads (even for White Lighting DMS's), while regular White Lighting reloads were at -40%.

Hack of a deal for both, if you ask me.

No need to worry if you missed Wednesday sale, - the Saturday follow-up will be even better (judging by last year's experience). I'm certainly planning to come back for seconds tomorrow...

Description is limited, and missing key details, and no pics.

I am guessing 75mm MD airframe (Mach 2 was 54mm MD).
With some luck, the description will get updated before Saturday.

YMMV,

I searched the website for CTI or AT 75mm reloads, says none available, what gives?

Maybe for Valintines Day Tim could sell the hearts and with his wood burning set he could burn in what ever message one would want.

That's not always the case. Some years, there are a few kits or combo specials that have been limited to a set number.
Last two years, CTI motors were limited to stock on hand or what he had ordered already. Two years ago all LOC kits were limited to stock on hand. He's also done limited runs on some special versions of Wildman kits. What I do is set an alarm 10 minutes before the sale, read the email from Tim and see if there's anything I have to order right then. If not, I can go back to sleep for a couple hours. But I agree with others: Being on the West coast is challenging for this one (although it works great for the Wednesday Sale!).

Enjoy the sale!

There's a certain kit I've had my eye on that wasn't included in the Wednesday sale, and is now missing. I better hide my credit card tomorrow........

There are a lot more things missing than that :_)
Until tomorrow morning.
Hey if we bought on the member's sale and then were really glutton's for punishment and bought again tomorrow, can we merge the order for shipping purposes if everything is in stock?
