If you are after some dog barf (treated chopped paper based insulation, not actual dog vomit :P), I have more than enough to last me a lifetime. It's the same type of stuff Ari has, and you are welcome to grab a bag of it next launch if you want.

Most places that sell insulation for houses will have it, because it *is* insulation for houses :P It will come in a bale, which is very well compressed, and will have enough in it to last a veeeeery long time.

Just in case anyone doesn't know what I'm on about, this is dog barf:

Have a look in the Yellow Pages under Insulation. See if there are any handyman type stores in your area that are listed as selling cellulose fibre insulation. If not, you could always try a place that does insulation installation and see if they will sell you a bale of it.

**BUT**
Rather than buying a full bale and having more wadding than you will ever need, grab a pack of Estes wadding, or grab some fire retardant treated (it should say on the packet) party streamers from the local store as Kryten suggested for the time being, and I'll bring a bag of stuff for you next launch.

Asher, don't worry about getting this stuff, Guppzor or myself can give you some. I must still have 8 KG's of the stuff left from a 10 KG bale I bought.
I got it directly from the manufacturer, Cool or Cosy at Yatala. :)

I must remember that I have promised 2 other people bags of it. Estes wadding is just SOOOOO ovepriced, it's a joke.

The pink bats preformed really well the stuff did not come out of tube whet it ejected i founld out that the material has a tendancy to really stay :) in the tube i literally had to get a stick and move it around :lol: its good cause then it dosent litter the park with black and pink debrie.

i would recommend it it dose really do its job at protecting your chute but you can easly see the result of a high temp reaching the pink bats , results black one one side pink on the other. you dont have too really put much off the stuff in soo it wont weigh the rocket to much more.

What a perfect day to launch rockets. :)

Clear sky, +26 and calm, WOW. Last two weeks have been like that and it still lasted for us today.

There were app. 9 of us only launching as it is mothers day and about 20 family members and some visitors too. Special mention must go to Matthew Small who paid us a visit, was good to meet you mate !!

Around 25 launches took place. Special mentiom must go to Asher for having 2 great launches. His 2 stager went brilliantly. Congrats mate. :)

It was good to meet Jonathan ( John) who will join our ranks. We have been chatting on the net and he had built some really cool rockets which flew brilliantly.

Mike's 5 cluster Stovi went like clappers, all motors firing. Logan & Monigue, George, Blake, Phil, Jordan etc. all had good launches. I had
another CATO on G38-7W, same motor from same patch that blew my AMRAAM 2 apart. :(

Thanks to all as it was ano

Thanks to all as it was another great launch day. :)
