I track it via an RSS reader (Feedly on the web, and using the Reeder app on my iPhone).

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

I'll download that to my iPad tonight and I'll check it out. I appreciate that suggestion. I was trying to look for RSS readers this past weekend but it seemed the descriptions for most of the apps I saw had a lot of options for posting and maintaining a blog where I'm just trying to find something pull some differnt sites in and track them from an app instead of having to visit each different website. I'll give Feedly a try thanks!

If you leave the thrust ring out you should easily be able to fly it with an FAA exempt low thrust H (under 240H120).

There is no thrust ring. Estes actually tells you to put a 1/4" wide wrap of masking tape around the front of the motor (7-8 wraps) to keep the motor from going up the tube. (Only 1/4" wide because you still put the retainer over the motor to keep it from kicking out at ejection). Old school stuff like we used to do all the time with high powered rockets!

This is consistent with the Star Orbiter and the Super Big Bertha....so I'm not surprised this one is done that way.

Neil this Feedly app for iOS is exactly what I was looking for, thanks so much for recommending that! I like the magazine layout and how you can add articles to a board to keep them together to find them quickly later like this Estes Doorknob build.

I'm still learning some of the features but the free version of this app is working very well and I really like it.
