I might have gotten some good video of that without any content being captured.

Now that we have the F67, what about the F52, E24 and of course the G76 and H111??

Licensing the name in no way changes ownership. They also have a motor distribution agreement so the liability issues re simplified.

I'm kinda 'meh' on the F52...it was barely an F.
The 29mm E24, F67, G76, and H111 would be awesome too... especially if the H111 is under the LMR propellant weight limit so one could legally fly it without a waiver.

Well thatís not good news. If either Gary or Dane are still around today I will ask about that.

Semroc: updates to existing products - new tabbed laser cut fins/wings and decals for the Orbital Transport and additions to the MMX line.

They also showed a model, the name has escaped me, that had a boat tail version of a screw on motor retainer, which is interchangeable with one that is shaped like a big deLaval nozzle. It also had a screw-together joint in the middle. I think Iíve seen the joiner on eRockets already. I believe these parts are 3D printed.

Apogee: working on a staging timer and still working on the GPS guided rogollo chute system.

Peter Alway: next edition of Rockets of the World still several years away.

Peter was showing recently released books - the WWII rockets book and the V-2 painting guide. But yes, he said a new edition of RoTW is still some time away.

Quote:
NCR: some kit updates and new laser cut construction tools/stands.

BMS: updates to the big School Rocket, including a 29mm motor version and add-on payload bays.

Newway: more square tube versions of old favorites, MMX versions of current Newway designs and a down scale of a really big square tube HPR rocket I wasnít familiar with.

The New Way Spacemodels downscale was the Spirit of Higgs Farm. A new release here at NARAM is the Flat Boy, which is about the size of the Estes Mini Fat Boy but with an 18mm motor mount. The nose cone is 3D printed.

The MicroMax models (there are several) are also almost entirely 3D printed.

Rick showed two that are not yet released. First was Big Bessie (a square Big Bertha, but in a black/white cow motif). This model uses the same nose cone as Flat Boy (just as their Estes counterparts do). And there was the Saturn-4, which is a square Saturn V about the size of the Dr. Zooch Saturn V. The fins/nozzle fairings as well as the entire upper section (S-IVB on up) is 3D printed.

And James Duffy opened the forum with his own new product - a DVD about the Bell X-1 (spacemonkey models and rocket.aero)

Dang it! I was late getting there and missed the X-1 announcement - thanks for the info, the X-1 is a favorite of mine.

But it that was clearly in a lighthearted tone, so I donít think that we can read any significance into it with respect to older designs currently reproduced by Semroc/eRockets. Or thatís how I read that bit, anyway.


There was no 'arrangement' concerning the Enerjet trade name.

Use it or lose it. ;)

Enerjets were sold in the rest stops of the New Jersey Turnpike back in the 1970's.


And they are still available today!!!

I approve. :D

The Mega Initiator has a 54mm motor mount.
