Default Estes Cheesecake

Has anyone else seen the Estes 'Oracle' add in the new
SpRroketry issue? Kinda harkens back to 'The Lovely Tracie Reeves' days.

Yawn.

It is certainly getting the attention, however. There is quite an active thread on this topic over at TRF.

I'm not all that interested in the rocket, mostly because of the prices I've heard tossed around, but the ad is very impressive.

The price wouldn't bother me as much if the quality was there, but from what I've read
it's not. Also, the claim "For the first time ever...." is more than a little marketing BS.

Personally, I think it is kinda cool, but I can't justify dropping $130 on a rocket that - with my luck - would end up in a rocket-eating tree on the first flight!

Besides, I'm looking at cheaper alternatives (I bought one of those $20 stick cams at Target that I'm gonna try to modify when I get a round tuit.)

Heh, no. I asked Matt about her quite awhile back when I bought a bunch of his old catalogs from him. Matt stops by here from time to time. Maybe he'll chime in?

Default The lovely Traci

No, I was not that lucky... Traci worked for with my fiance/wife, so that's how I got to know her and use her for the NCR photos.
