Hello Kevin.

I just stumbled across the tail end of this thread, and figured I'd check
that everything arrived okay, without any damage to the components.  We've
had some bad luck with shipping lately.

Hope you enjoy the kit.

Hi Andrew.

Everything arrived in A-1 shape. My folks (and I) were very impressed
with the service your people provided (I have no idea who they spoke
to, but I saw your name on the shipping label). I especially
appreciated the inclusion of the 24mm Loc tubing- I'd been prepared to
"roll my own" if I got this kit.

Trust me, ARG/Sigma will definitely be seeing orders from me in the
future! :-)

Art,

I built my SA 14 Archer XL this past summer. Aside from the fact that it turned
out heavier than Estes/NCR predicted, it turned out well.
Flew it on a G64 RMS first and then on a H128
to cert Level 1. I'm currently working on the NCR Patriot (almost done with
construction).
Both have longer (22 in.) LOC mmt's with baffles. On both I left off the rear
CR to give the fins internal fillets on mmt and inside wall of BT.

Kevin,

My 29/240 casing is 9.5 in long. However,
when I ordered my 38mm RMS set from Dr. Rocket this past December, he said that
a new 29/300? casing will be out this spring. I used my Archer to cert L1. Any
questions just Email me.

Havent built LOC kit...how do you clone their baffle? Is it similar to the
system used on standard model rockets...two bulkheads with holes drilled in
them? or other method?
Thanks for all the input.  I think I'm buyin!

I'm not sure if you're refering to my post or another. At any ratew, I don't
particularly like the LOC/AT/wad-o-mesh type baffle anyway. See the Kaplow
Klip article (url below) for instructions on making a Centuri / Original
Rockets style baffle. That's what I used on my Archer until an AT F50 catoed
the motor mount to smitherines.
