That's because you're all talk. Some of us actually fly the rockets.

We used to sell a kit called Powerdive. A two stage rocket with a recommended booster of fairly high power and long delay, which ignites the upper motor or igniter, and a recommended sustainer of relatively low power but longish burn and short delay. GREAT KIT!!! However it immediately became clear end users were not catching the magic of a safe recovery and SUBSTITUTED HIGH POWER MOTORS IN THE UPPER STAGE AS WELL. Oh well.

Just Jerry

I DON'T re-kit my planes. Have been flying for 40 years and the last "pilot error" re-kit was in about 1992.
Many I know re-kit theirs with alarming regularity though.
