FSI revival?
#1
Last year around this time things were abuzz with news of the reformation of Flight Systems, Inc.  Since then there has been a web presence, but little else.  Anyone hear of anything from the new owners?  I was pretty pumped about the idea of having a classic bunch of kits return, but things seem to have dried up.

I remember that, I was a bit jazzed myself. I guess there was a LOT of stuff that was just lost in time.
I am happy Semroc seems to still be going

Semroc is kicking butt. I've seen the new operation and it's impressive.

It' a great tribute to the rocket community in general, and the SEMROC family specifically, that the SEMROC name and kits will continue under new management!

Hopefully FSI is still on the way back. The more mfg's we have, the better...

I really liked FSI's stuff back in the day... it'd be nice to think we could enjoy it again.

Best of luck FSI! OL JR Smile

Dave Bucher (owner of FSI) has been posting quite a bit to the NAR and Model Rocket Fanatics facebook pages - several pictures of FSI display models.

Their web site hasn't updated in approximately the past year. "Products" page still says they'll be unveiling their kits on September 1, 2014. They've missed that deadline slightly. I'm not holding my breath. Them and Qmodeling... years of "coming soon" but nothing to show for it.

Way too much in the NAR group for me to keep track of!  Confused

(Wait... 4 C6-3s? I have a surplus of those things...)
