I'm interested in buying and building minimum diameter rockets in the 24 to
29 mm range.  I noticed that US Rockets sold some, and ordered one online
about 6 weeks ago.  I haven't received anything from them yet.  Is that
normal?  I tried dialing an 800 number I saw on the site.  It was
disconnected.  That didn't make me feel too good...

Now I'm thinking about the AAA Model Avaition Fuels Lasersonic Mach1.2+, and
purchasing it from Magnum.  Good idea?  Anyone have any thoughts on these
matters?

First of all, you are about to be attacked by a number of people for even
mentioning US Rockets.  I have placed three orders from them.  I received
one but not the other two.  I paid for the one.  I am still getting bills
for it 6 months later.  Let's just say that US Rockets has some
"challenges."

Now, as for the AAA kit, call Ross at Magnum and see if he has them.  AAA is
a VERY small company, and may or may not still be in business.  As for
Magnum itself, I have never heard a complaint, although there might be some.
Magnum is my first choice for supplies, but I am not really all that
impartial.

Let us know what you end up doing.  Good luck!

Your money would be best off spent at another company for a product
you *will* receive. And the received product is quality and not some
coack roach eaten, misrepresented scrap. If you do decide to order
from said company, insist it be shipped up fron, and you pay after you
get it. (Not COD) you need to use caution when dealing with the
weasel, as what you see is not what your gonna get And I am not
talking merchandise here either <G> Just do a DEJA NEWS search on USR
or RMR Tshirts, or Jerry Ir&^^ and see what the consensus of his
reputation is. Just make sure you have a lot of time to read them all,
as there is a ton of stuff out there with99% against USR for his
business tactics or would that be lack there of!

Howdy
I launched my modified PML Cirrus(AAA fibreglass tubing) on a J-350.
Apogee 10,860'
Totaly awesome flight. The old altitude record was 10,584 but I was
about to stroke out from my retrievel in the MUDDY field. I may not have
done some of the paperwork right to set a record. It was the most
military like flight I have seen from anything but a real military
rocket.

Awsome Tom!  Congtratulations.  As far as the retrieval goes, be careful.
Adrenalin and mud = a few pumps per minute.
