The camera looks back or looks out (I think I see a hood fairing so probably back)?

Well, I won’t give up hope for an upscaled MAV - someday. We’ve had several upscaled Alphas over the years...

Looks like I'm going to have to get several of each of them.


@JumpJet: Can we get any more pictures of the new kits? I'd love to see what's in store for us.

It sure looks like it looks aft in the box art. It appears to be in a starter set (yes, including motors Fred). I wonder if that's a Hobby Lobby thing or if it will be general release.

One of the highlight announcements was North Coast Rocketry's F117 free flight glider.

"New for 2020 - F117 Stealth boost glider. Powered by an Aerotech E20-4, the model spirals up on boost, ejects a pop pod on a streamer, and gently glides back to earth. List price $117.00. Available late spring. Details to follow."

Any chance we might see the table for sale at some furniture stores?

By the way, the Saturn Skylab is an awesome offering. Thanks!

Did anyone attend the Manufactures discussion. I thought Bill might announce a couple more things there as well. If he mentioned other stuff, I could then add a little more detail to them.

When I saw the picture last night, I wondered if it was RC. It looks like a control arm on the left wing, but maybe thats an adjustment to induce roll during boost?
