Hopefully that "Sidekick" kit has a feature that goes after DULLARDS/BUFFOONS that state obvious/useless information and BOOTS THEM IN THE HEAD.

I'm looking for a bit bigger for 29mm power. More room for R/C gear in a BT-60 based orbiter.

It's gotten so small, you could fit it in Lee's orbiter.

Joe,

Thank you. My memories have faded a bit from the pain of cutting all that basswood by hand!

If I were to ever do another, Id buy the laser cutter Ive wanted for years!

Model rocketry is as safe as safe can be defined in human existence. Bow and pray: GH Stine, Orville, Vern, Lee, Lonnie, Carl, etc. No, really. U.S. Rockets invented LMR, HPR, Firestarter, reloadables, and now . . .
