I posted the question on the NAR site on Facebook and someone pointed me to the Manufacturers page for Stellar Dimensions on Rocket Reviews. Original owner of Stellar Dimensions was Patrick Spence. Apparently he now lives in Minnesota and runs an Alpaca farm. No word yet as to who bought the company.

Thought I would share this. Picked up 5 SDI kits on the EBay listing in post #1. Built 3 so far, the Vr-T-Go, Phalanx, and Gyro Nomo (first pic.)
Close-up of the laser etched design on the Vr-T-Go (second pic).
Close up of the twist lock teflon ring used as a motor retainer (third pic).
My thoughts:
Shock cord is way too short.
Lug guides, shock cord anchor, and motor mount seem quite fragile.
Unique shroud line attachment method seems quite sturdy.
Fun builds, I have the Vector and Avenger in my build pile. Will keep me busy during the rest of this lockdown. Update with a pic will be posted upon completion.
Stay safe, don't be a Covidiot.
