I've been flying rockets for two years now and im not where to go now, what sort of kits should i be looking at? Is there any one on who is part of this group who lives in the UK and flys in the north of Scotland?
As other posters have said, you should subscribe to uk.tech.rocketry and consider joining UKRA.
Whereabouts are you? There's a large annual event held in Largs at the end of August. There is a group by the name of SARA up there too.
You've probably been flying Estes black powder LPR stuff? The next step is generally to move up to AP & HPR. It's quite a big step at present in the UK. Officially, Estes in the UK stops at D (The Estes BP E, though technically illegal, does turn up sometimes), but HPR pretty much start at G with Pro38. Aerotech used to fill that gap, but are no longer available. To be able to buy AP you need to fill out some paperwork and get some licenses. Details are on the UKRA site.
As for kit recommendations for that next step, we have some good vendors in the UK. You can see a list at
Deepsky, in particular, have a very informative web site.
