    Of course, the best answer for everyone is to just buy another kit :)

    Now would be a great time to remind her how much she loves you and how good you've been this year. :)

    So let's pretend a Warlock makes the sale.......

    Is it possible to make a Warlock a Level 3 bird? What would be necessary?

    Couldn't agree more about spreading around my cash. There is a bit of a backstory between this particular vendor and my girlfriend, so I try to go elsewhere first. I made two separate orders, and only thought about canceling the LOC order.

    It'll be hard to pass up an IROC or Doorknob if they go on sale. Would like a Gizmo too. We'll see.

    How about an IROC with 54mm motor mount?

    Bigger MMT. It'll need redundant electronics. Current kit has no AV bay.

    Timbucktoo,

    Good info, I would ad an AV Bay and go DD.

    What are your thoughts on fin and body tube materials?

    The Jenday (yellow head) is Mangogh (pronounced like the fruit). The little green terror is Pomelo. Not picture is Buddy, our Timenh African Grey.

    I just bought the stock kit with 38mm MMT. You have the option to upgrade to 54mm. For most L3 motors you are going to need 75mm MMT.
    I went ahead and added 2 layers of 6 oz glass to airframe & did a tip to tip with same. Overkill but built like a brick toilet house!

    :lol: Gus has MANY...MANY Newtons in the 75-98mm variety sitting here waiting for a clear and, sunny day.They don't go bad, if stored well.

    Yes...but, IF don't see something your really interested in- You wait till tomorrow.
    I would and, do consider it too be "P*ss" to cancel or return an order. You get mind set...it becomes availible...you purchase and, the sun sets. If it doesn't happen today, it will be there another.

    Cirice....:surprised: I MEAN Sabrina...I have many cans of high temp glues sitting here along with vacuum bagging materials. I also have an unbuilt Mongus 98 that will serve well as a "BOOSTER" for a Two Stage Project in Kansas this year-:dark:

    If you haven't seen my email to your father yet.
    I was not happy with another sale today, so I am "laying the keel" on a project that will involve: You, Wildman, David Reese and, me...

    Now start working on your grades in school! This IS the last FREE education you will receive in your life.
    My Daddy didn't have any money, so Uncle Sam took me away and taught me how to screw together a Nuclear ICBM...Too bad there weren't enough jobs on the outside for that.

    There's always Truck Driving...and, your N:no:T going to do that...if I have any say-Now study up!:rant:

    Doesn't look like much 75 CTI propellant left nor 54mm 6xl stuff. Last year I was able to get some great motor deals. I don't care if they aren't delivered till May but are they going to be able to be ordered?

    Oh no, I thought I had escaped without spending money when Madcow didn't revive the Mongoose 75, but a 75 Blackhawk might break me. If it is a 75 that is.

    Maybe a correction of A LOT LESS. Last year I scored 4 75s and a few 54s no problem and it was late in the day.

    We have received under a dozen 54mm loads in the last 4 months.
    unfortunately they cannot tell us when they will be ready so until then we will only sell what we are promised

    Quick question,

    With the shortage of CTI offerings, I'm thinking about getting some Aerotech motors and have a question. On wildmans site he has a 54 special set 1 and 2. The 2 set includes a 1260 and 2800 case and hardware. If I purchase this can I launch all 54's up to and through the 2800 size? Do I need anything else? Just trying the understand their motor sizes.

    Thanks for any help and suggestions

    Tim, I'm really pressuring myself to skip the Madcow sale this year because of Wildmans black Saturday, which I'm anticipating to be bigger and better than ever. Could you please elaborate or give us some more hints on what Wildman kits are going to be on sale? :confused:
