Well it's been a year (wow) since the last update to this thread, does anyone have any updates that they would like to share?

Killer stack OTT.

I plan on keeping it simple. Minimum diameter. Single break. DD. 4 fin. Carbon airframes and fins. FG (Performance Rocketry) VK nosecones. Should be fun.

54mm bird will fly on a L935.

75mm rocket will fly on a M2245.

Motors have been sitting in Blake's store for over a year now. In fact IIRC he's been holding the L935 for me since before ARTDU2015. Time to light these candles!

Got a few things left to purchase before I start building. Plus I've got to finish setting up my new shed. :D

I plan on making an attempt at breaking the AMRS L motor altitude record. The M motor record, well, that's probably not as easily within reach! :wink:
