If anyone is attending GPS Systems for Sport Rockets by Will Marchant please post some details here. I just found out I am going to miss this 10:00AM presentation but I will be back around the time of the lunch break to catch all the afternoon stuff I have blocked off. Thanks!

I guess that is up to you. I have a slide early on that ends with "If you’re looking for info on deployment altimeters, you’re in the wrong talk. Sorry...."

So a clear choice.

remember we'll have 30 days to watch any/all of the sessions. And those that haven't registered can still register, even after the conference ends.

Just $25! a Steal.

I am also surprised he didn't show another new item that Estes has already told the hobby shops/distributors is coming soon.

You are correct sir - the model he dropped (which WAS edited out but he pointed it out) was...Nike-Hercules! Looked like a fairly small scale, maybe even 13mm powered but it was a very short view.

Bill just mentioned a specific future motor - higher powered B class booster.

It sounds like the future licensed SpaceX and Blue Origin rockets from Estes will be part of the 1/200 RTF line like the Saturn V and SLS. I can see that - those are dual purpose flyable/display models.

A definite but disappointing answer from the chat session after the Estes video tour - no 29mm motors coming to Hobby Lobby. We can infer that also means no 29mm powered kits at Hobby Lobby as welll since they only stock complimentary rockets/motors.

Liking to hear there will be a higher power B motor and a small Nike Herc.

Maybe a B with the number 14 after it?
