Default NARAM-63 Manufacturers' Forum

The NARAM-63 Manufacturers' Forum was Saturday night.

Can anyone report on what was announced/discussed?

I wonder if anyone asked them what their reaction was to the decision to eliminate the Sport Range from NARAM, starting with NARAM-64 ?

I would like to know how the manufacturers feel about that decision . . .

This NARAM is going to go down as the 'stealth' NARAM.

Would be cool if someone has pics of these. Is the Falcon 9 a kit or RTF?

If I recall correctly what was said during the vNARCON 2022 Manufacturers' Forum it will be RTF.

LOL... I guess so...
It's still interesting to hear about. I particularly like the news about the new motor offerings, though I am concerned (just a little) about what sorts of motors Aerotech plans to retire. I like flying full-F single use motors - which I can't imagine are very popular because they are expensive motors and also because of the hazmat charges.
