Thank you for listing my site.
I know mostly everything here is LPR. We do some mid power kits but are mostly hi power. I do some upscale kits and I have my own line of kits. We just released a Level 1 kit for those wanting to step into the hi power side. We also offer areo pack and top flight chutes. We will soon have missile works altimeters. I also offer laser cutting. Stop by the site and check it out. Thank you

LPR and MPR for the most part, yes. However, many of us have at some point been involved in HPR. I was even into EX for a while, going as far as an M3000 before the loss of Pepcon (AP source), and the ATF got so jack boot thuggish (Kaplowism).

Most of my HPR scratch builds were classic Estes and Centuri upscales. I'd venture to guess your best selling kits to the YORF crowd would be classic kit scale ups in the MPR and maybe lower LPR range. Decal inclusion would be a big selling point.

I do both LPR and MPR. I got my L2 in 1997, but bailed on HPR like tbzep when the BATFE got heavy-handed, and have never really had the desire to go back. Id rather fly bigger MPR with clusters.

I visited your site and the Laser Work section is empty. For me, centering rings and plywood fins for upscales would be of interest. My most recent MPR is a 2.5 scratch-built Sky Hook. This uses thru-wall basswood fins I hand cut using bandsaw.

There is no parts under the laser work tab as that is for custom work. We do have laser parts under Dragon Parts on the store tab.

I guess there was nothing under the laser work tab since the page got replaced with another page. Thank you for pointing out that there was nothing there. I gotta stop working on the site a 3am...LOL
