Hi Rex,

Yes we are planning to fly the 2.6" FG Tomach on our I-357 at MWP on Sunday.

Tim's trailer is dangerous as it has all the goodies and the incentive of no shipping charges.... this leads to overspending my allowance.

We have been adding Nome parachute protectors to all of our Mid and High power rockets in addition to a handful of dog barf.

We have a Giant Leap Rocketry Fireball that we might just insert in the booster to minimize the chances of a zipper.

We will also CA coat the inner cardboard tube ends to add strength.

Got the fins all sanded (100, 150, 220, 320 grit) and they are smooth as glass.

The booster tube comes marked with lines for the fin slots and the lug/rail buttons. After very careful marking of the fin slots using a T square we got the slots cut out.

We'll get the motor mount built next.


BTW, we thought your PVC launch pad was quite nice and did a great job!

Cheers,

Matt and Nate
