Quick catch up

Hey Guys,

After having a sift though all that I still have laying around I'm quite pleased to say not a lot has changed in its state of usability.

The Parachute Deployment System is all still intact (apart from obviously needing a new battery) =D

All of the Asymmetric splices will need rebinding with fibreglass tape in order to be used again as the adhesive has discoloured and given up on most of them. The splices will be re-pressure tested and has a thorough post test examination before being classed as usable again. I am however a little sceptical that they will come through, so in the mean time will start collecting new bottles to create splices with =)

The Launch Pad is in exactly the same state as previously described a year or so ago so this is the first item to be sorted on the agenda.

I must still glue in a bottle cap to the 15mm nozzle piece to create the new larger nozzle.

I promise the next update will be a little more interesting with a few pictures this time =)

Until then thank you for reading..

Regards Doug

I'm back

Hey Guys,

Its been much too long since I've posted anything or made any progress with this hobby (or any of my hobbies for that matter!!) work and a few life hurdles threw themselves in my path over the past couple of years so for that I apologise.

I am here to STAY this time =D!

The plan for the next few weeks are to dig everything out and take a stock check of what is ok and what will need remaking or repairing.

FIRST on the agenda after that is to get the adaptor piece for the launcher on the workshop floor and made either by me or if I don't have the time I will contract the piece out as a long enough wait has grown.

I will make the promise of an update a week until no longer necessary, so watch this space =D

Regards Doug
