  Astron Skydart II help needed
Posted by: Kirk G - 07-12-2017, 09:50 PM - Forum: Low Power - Replies (2)

OK, so on impulse, I picked up an Astron Skydart II on discount sale from a local vendor.  I figured I'd have some fun with this Skill Level 3 kit as I assemble it at my leisure.
I've opened the package and discover the instructions are in three or four languages, with a minimal amount of description.  There appear to be about 32 parts, not including a few multiple rings and washers that have me concerned.

My first step is to read the instructions and try to follow the assembly, and while it seems pretty straight forward, I want to make sure that I've got the right part before I try gluing things together.  Note: NONE of the parts, tubes, rings or washers are labeled by any part number, NOR ANY DIMENSIONS!

So, I'd like to ask for some help identifying which rings and tubes are which before I start assembling them.  Can you confirm for me the COLORS of the following parts?

FIVE part "I" rings that appear to be metal washers.
Two part "G" green?
Two part "C" clear plastic rings?
One part "D" split ring in green
One part "FF" that appears to be a thicker fiber filler ring? in Green?
one part "F" that appears to be a normal ring, also in green?
one part "E" that may be a motor stop? in yellow?

There are four tubes of varying lengths included:
one tube "J" in natural tan as the main body tube?  about 13" long
one tube "A" in white that is 12" long
one tube "K" in white that is 6" long  (I am guessing that this tube is slit in half to form two shells on either side of the body tube?
one tube "X" in yellow that appears to be some sort of insert spacer only?  about 2 3/4" long (70 mm long)
one tube "H " in white about 2" long (50 mm long)
one launch lug "L"

I can't seem to spot a pin, part "U" anywhere. Is that packaged with the five metal washers, parts "I"?  or elsewhere?  How critical is this?

Any help in confirming that I'd identified these parts correctly before I begin would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!

  TRF Vendor Fees

Here is an interesting thread on TRF. I thought it had been deleted, but appears to be just locked now.

$25/month is ass-tronomical for our little niche market. That makes the vendor is making 5-10 sales per month JUST for TRF access. Many of our vendors are making just around 5-20 sales/month anyway. Very few are making a living at it. CTI and Aerotech are the only large companies for whom this kind of advertising fee would make any sense. But even then... Rocketry is a small hobby and TRF is really just a message board for hobbyists. If anyone has a responsibility to maintain the costs, it's us, the hobbyists.

I'm on another forum for one of my other hobbies (no- it's not related to trolling). This forum is much larger than TRF, with way higher traffic and larger user base. It's run by one guy, who's an enthusiast, not just an "owner". Everything on the forum is free to use, and when he needs money to cover the hosting fees, etc.. he'll put out a request for donations. Usually he gets what he needs for several months at a time. He gets this money because he's cultivated an environment where people want to donate to keep it running in the way that he wants. FYI- there are no ads on this other site either.

I keep promising myself I won't post here anymore and then I go and do it. I don't know that other people were given a free pass, I think it's more an oversight situation. For quite some time, I automatically paid a monthly fee (not $25) until one day the forum cancelled my payments. I was still able to post and didn't worry about it. I don't visit regularly anymore and don't know when the fee to post situation started. But earlier this week I got a message telling me that the forum couldn't find records of any recent payments. Well yeah, they cancelled them, that generally means they would stop getting them.
It's not worth $25/mo. to post. I've been far less active on the forums lately, we're doing most of our communication through our Facebook page. We'll just continue on that path for now, it's working out well so far.

Fake outrage, fake news, spread by people who have always hated on RocketryForum for their own personal gain of trying to poach members to another forum.
We had multiple Vendors complain that some people were bragging they paid nothing or $5/month that the previous owner had and which we honored for years even though with PayPal fees it came out to near nothing.
The program being discussed now is not a new program, it's what the majority of Vendors were on and now people who in some cases DIDN'T PAY were asked to pay what everyone else does, they want it back to their original price of free and have sent threatening messages about wanting their free services back. When we didn't respond to threats their new tactic is spreading lies on Facebook and here about evil businesses gouging the little guy. We had other Vendors sign-up right away, it's only a fraction of these people who want everything in life free that are trying their best to cry. It's never been free to post ads on RocketryForum, since it's near inception but not surprising there are those who think everything should handed to them.
Take your fake news back to Facebook. Build your forums and Facebook groups legitimately instead of spreading lies and spamming this forum.
