Those wishing to ask Barry a question may do so at that time, inorder for everyone to have that opportunity, we ask that you ask only one question per member, and if time allows, more questions will be taken.

Please be brief and keep your question on the topic at hand Estes.

No personal attacks, no name calling, lets be civil.

All questions will be answered, that can be, without going into confidential company business..

Barry has agreed to do this in part to reduce the speculation on the sale of the company and any other false information that might be at hand.

Barry deserves our respect and is looking forward to speaking with you here.

FYI

At exectly 6 pm Colorado time, the queation and answer period will end, even if in mid sentence.

I will start a new thread at 4 PM Colorado time for this Q & A session







Ken is this April fools?

If not, wow!

Here are my 2 questions:

Do you think Estes will ever switch over from BP as the propellant for Estes model rocket engines to the EB75?

Will Estes ever consider making reloadable BP or reloadable EB75 model rocket engines?

for those of you who are unaware of EB75 attached is the .pdf describing it

if aanybody is interesteing is discussing this propellant see here:

"In some cases, the binder can comprise one or more modifiers that can modify a Theological property of a mixture thereof, e.g., reduce a viscosity of the precursor material." United States Patent Application Publication US 2006/0272754 A1, page 6, paragraph 0066. (Starting on the 25th line of the paragraph, which is on page 14 of the .pdf.)

I guess that God really is in the details!

thanks rd this should be interesting. As i have said before product in hand is the only thing that matters. When /if this happens we will all be happy. Most of the rest will take care of itself. "Delays" make me uneasy. Just get er done. Give us product asap.

I prefer products that are "well done" (done well).

Not "done before ready" (rushed out the door to meet a deadline instead of meeting a quality/reliability standard).

RD,

I think you're missing the point of what Gus was saying........

If every member of YORF is on the thread, and you ask for a question, suddenly the thread is 500 posts long!

Somewhere, there has to be a way to control the questions. A question que so that the thread isn't inundated with questions.

Personally, I like the suggestion where the questions are submitted before hand to you. You, acting as the moderator could then say "Our first question is from Gus in Michigan" and then Gus can type in his question to Barry. It's still live and we don't have everyone trying to post at the same time.

I would agree with this. It would allow questions to be properly formed and avoid duplication.

I would be very happy with Ken moderating the questions. I think it might make the experience more pleasant (less chaotic) for Barry and more useful for all of us.

I will be working that evening so I won't be able to participate live but if I could nominate one question to ask Barry (via Ken) it would be this:

What are the biggest challenges facing Estes right now and what are you doing to meet them?

I am curious to see what questions others would ask if they knew they only get to ask one question.
