C6-3. Finally a use for those 400+ C6-3 motors I have stockpiled. (I was using them in a 7 motor cluster for a while in my Mega-Tubular Treat).

My son works for Lockheed, their direct competitor, so I can't get all happy about that. But still...it's pretty cool.

Looks great, John! I hope this brings renewed interest to the space program, and brings new folks into the hobby. I'll certainly buy a few.

Ha. I thought that as well, then I saw that John tried to buy it back when Tunick sold it. But then he was successful this time, so maybe it was the Boeing money that put him over the top!

I wonder if this will be released at Narcon. I would love to go since it's an easy drive but my son has a cub scout thing this weekend and I wouldn't miss that for anything. It would be cool to see it released there.

I'll be there, and I'll let you know if I see any.
