New Products to check out:
LIMITED RELEASE OF NEW XX PHENOLIC AIRFRAME ON SELECT KITS!
We're excited to finally release of our new line of XX phenolic airframe in all three sizes (54mm, 3" and 3.9"). Right now it will be available in limited quantities and on select high power kits (or by request to upgrade for a slight charge). The XX phenolic airframe is lighter, stronger, more dimensionally consistent and has better static balance. It also has an extremely smooth OD like fiberglass. Of course, we will continue to carry our signature Canvas.
Just how strong is this stuff? Conway Stevens from Northern Colorado has flown a piece of our 54mm to 27,700 and Mach 3.1 on a shake down flight with a K375 Dual Thrust (not quite a full K) for his "K" record attempt which took place at NSL Memorial day weekend in Alamosa Colorado. You can check out his post on TRF https://www.rocketryforum.com/threa...ormance-x-rated-airframe.179581/#post-2424660
I would also like to thank the rest of our Beta testers for their time and efforts. It's their work that helps to bring great products to our hobby!!

CONWAY'S FLIGHT RESULTS
"It was an epic great time. Had lots of fun. I learned a ton. I did not beat the record but did have a really great flight. The data for the flight was close to Mach 3, (2.998) at a altitude of 31,374 ft AGL. I recovered less than a mile away roughly 5,000ft. Winds aloft were 50mph at FL300. Ground winds were 2mph.

If you need to change your order (add items and/or change), please contact us by phone (518-872-9490) or email at email@example.com instead of creating another order so that we can add to the existing invoice to avoid sending you two separate orders and possibly paying shipping on more than one order.
SHIPPING POLICY: We ship our products USPS or UPS. The majority of small packages go Priority Mail when possible. Due to the cost of shipping in some areas, larger packages are generally shipped UPS. Since we cannot individualize every order to each city and county where you may live, there is a standard cost for smaller items of less weight and a heavy shipping cost for the larger items in each state. We will continue to credit orders if the shipping cost exceeds our handling costs to ship to you. If you have any questions about shipping when placing an order, please email us and we will be happy to quote the exact cost to ship to your zone.
