Hmmmmm.... Hi-Flier XL on a G? That’s a crazy fun-sounding idea. I may have to pick one up next time I’m near Hobby Lobby.

I also love the Vagabond, and have one ready for sealer on the fins right now. I squirreled some away when they were being closed out, so still have three in the stash. Actually, my spreadsheet says I have a Hi-Flier XL in the stash as well. That’s even better than going to HL to buy one....

And I do have the Antar on the to-busy list as soon as AC Supply gets it in. I’ve enough motors on my “order” list to make a proper free shipping order when that happens.

Sir,

What rocket did you launch and recover for your L1?

Thumbs up

The Estes website is now showing the Antar rocket and the Startech igniters in stock. So I’m hoping vendors have them soon as well.

Chris built it already - he’s been waiting for Estes to make it available, then he can post his build on the blog...
