Any word on new Estes products?

Loading thread data ...
I heard from someone at eHobbies and they said that they need to update the Estes and Quest pages of their site. The mini X-Prize models should be there any day now (this week or next), followed by additional waves of models in coming weeks.
As always, those who placve their orders get them first and if the first wave sells out and you have not ordered any, you wait and wait and wait...

Most of us hobby stores are still waiting for their estes rockets. I know that I am waiting to buy two in paticular myself. I also think the hydrogen rockets will be comming out with this line though i'm not positive. They don't go up very high but could be usefull for beginers or demonstrating to kids to get them interested.

Well if the hydro's come in this batch I'll probably get one of those too. I don't have any kids, but I do have plenty of nieces and nephews who I believe are at a good age to get them interested. Something to show them there's more to life than TV and video games.

It's already out. I have one, delivered from Target last Thursday.

Dang, wonder why we haven't gotten our shipments in yet then. Does it work pretty good? I heard it will go up around 200 feet, but no real verification on that.

Don't know yet. Last week was very stormy, last few days have been good weather but hell otherwise (for example, I have not one, but BOTH of my cars in the shop for new transmissions -- what are the odds?). I'm also working under a business deadline which is making for long hours. I'm hoping to use it in a week or so...

Hehehe, can understand deadlines busy trying to totally redo our art site. Boss finally gave me a bit of creative control over how the site should look. And the odds according to Murphy is very good so we can blame him for that. Let us know when you launch it how well it works, maybe some pictures too!

Forgot to mention -- in my announcement of receipt of it last week, I posted links to the users manual for those who are interested...

Depends. Are they Chryslers? Their transmissions should be changed each time you change the oil filter.

Hydrogen rockets were shipped to the LARGE retailers who ordered big and ordered early. They got preference. They are NOT a "Model Rocket". They are more of a science experiment and fairly expensive.
To introduce folks to Model Rockets, you could buy them a BIG pile of rockets and a starter set for the same price.

They aren't even rockets, they're mortars. I find it bothersome that the manufacturer is pushing them as a "science" toy and yet can't even get this basic fact straight.

What do you consider to be a big pile? It's $40 at several online retailers.
