Wat's your deal this winter?!
Was just curious what everyone is working on this winter!

Post builds, modifications, etc... 

I plan on:
* finishing my 4" diameter upscale of the Estes Scorpius
* an Estes Leviathan that I just picked up today at Hobby Lobby for $21 (and plan on DD'ing)
* modifying the WAC Corporal's av bay for better setup and ease of operation (I can't see the LED's of the altimeters in the av bay as well as I can see them on a 3" rocket)
* LOC Minnie Magg

I think those will keep me busy for a while. I probably won't paint over the winter.. 

What about YOUSE?
I like rockets!
In order of priority
  • Finish Kill Bill avionics bay
  • 8" Honest John, 75mm central, 4 38mm for M drag race with Vileria
  • MARSA-ARM (next generation MARSA with tilt gyro)

trying to get the Starship Vega version 2 ready for Spring and the Switchblade kit ready for Christmas.

Actually most of my rocket stuff gets pushed aside for winter.  Most of them get built in the spring because I figure why bother if I cant fly them for months, and I dont have the kind of huge projects that take months to build.

But for next season, I'll be going smaller than my trend was going.  I just moved out of my parents house, so I'm going to have to start maximizing the performance of smaller (cheaper) motors.  I did get a tracker so expect to see something Weasel-y going about a mile on a 29mm full H or barely-an-I.

I do have a Wildman Vindicator Jr waiting to be built, but it probably wont be used at every launch.
Working on my 6 inch x-15 right now..   
plan next a  Talon 3..

then if time allows a bigger Phenix 4 inch version..

All are capable of K motors

Maybe make the Mini Magg a dual deploy

I have a few things. I have another Estes Big Daddy to build as well as a Hi-Flier XL. Then there is my L3 project, a 3x upscale of an Estes Der V-3. A couple other thoughts are a 4x upscale of an Estes Advanced Target Drone (Kit #1913) which would fly on 54mm moonburners, and a bigger version of the Amish Missile.
