Slimline retainers and cp/cg stickers query

Postby SpaceManMat » Mon May 27, 2013 8:55 pm

Hi Blake,
Any possibility of you stocking Slimline retainers and adapters?

Also centre of gravity & centre of presure decals? The only place I can find these that ship to aus are http://stickershock23.com/C_P_C_G.html but with shipping not really worth it unless you buy say 10+ sheets.

Hi SpaceManMat,

Agreed...

I get my CP/CG stickers from Sirius Rocketry http://www.siriusrocketry.biz/ishop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=10, and slimline retainers from Giant Leap Rocketry http://giantleaprocketry.com/products/components_retainers_adapters.aspx, I would however prefer to buy them (and all my Rocketry requirements) from Blake as he puts something back into Australia rocketry, he is also a great ambassador for our hobby, both locally and offshore...

It is something that I haven't touched on for some time, so I must re-investigate.

I can prob source those stickers too which may be beneficial for a number of flyers.

I will let you know how I go with it all in the near future.

Those "stickers" are just waterslide decals. I can print them off on a white background (need to be trimmed) or a transparent background if you need any before Blake gets them in stock. I have decal sheets lying and a nice big xerox colour laser :)

Contact Sascha at www.ibuildrockets.com

He has a wonderful new decal cutting machine.
He has vinyl CP decals - circle with cross hairs - 15 mm dia. circle - 10 pack for $2.50 available in black, white, yellow, red, orange, blue and gold.
If you want CG decals he can soon make some - Trouble with CG decals is that depending on what motor you use etc., etc. the CG will move around from flight to flight. CP is constant but CG will move from flight to flight. The decals don't move.

That's pretty handy, Str8up. I'll get some too as I just mark the Cp's with a black marker currently...

Yeah, go talk to Sascha if you want nice stuff, vinyl is way better than laser printed decal sheets!

Hi All,

Here's the CP decals I've done up - they are 20mm across.

They're $2.50 for 10 (in one or a mix of colours) + 60c postage.

I currently have Black, White, Yellow, Red, Orange, Blue and Gold.

PM me!

I'll drink to that.

Anyone coming out to Westmar on the week-end will see some of Krusty's handywork on my rockets. Only names at this stage but better is to come.
When you see STR8UP on a rocket you know it's mine.
