I noticed yesterday that Erockets had this listed as "In Stock" so I ordered one. Looking forward to receiving it.

That's a great release to see. There are just way too many good things coming out of the rocketry community, but I'll have to order one anyhow. It's listed as 18mm, seems like it would have been better at 24mm like the USS America. Anyone know what the fins are made of?
