Me too...  I'm somewhere north of 80 C6-3s...

OK, my surplus is nowhere near your surplus. Still, I've got a sketch for a C6-3 burner in OpenRocket. Might get around to it by next year. If I don't just give up and buy that FSI when and if it hits the market...

Getting back to the original question, has anyone actually spoken to Dave Bucher and asked if FSI is going to start selling kits/engines again??

I don't see FSI listed as one of the manufacturers registered for NARAM-57. Sad

Hopefully the new owners will have some news in the near future.

It will likely take them two full years to get motors going and approved.  They can probably get DOT approvals before they even get motors working sufficient for NAR and later for consumers.  I also suspect they are not on a track to get them declared not hazmat or a flammable solid without 1.4 treatment at all.

Be patient.

Attached are a couple prototype BP motors.  One a 18mm D20-4 and one a 15mm C15-3.
Attachments doesn't seem to work.

Exemptions not regulations. Please purchase a few rockets from http://v-serv.com/usr/instaship-visual.htm
Thanks. Support eliminating explosive treatment of slow burning solids by DOT.

Actually I was interested more on the rocket kit end of things than BP motors....
It would great to see some of the FSI models from the 70s being manufactured again.....

An 18mm D20 would be nice!

Talking direct to one of the owners. 6 kits are expected to be out by the end of the month (and guess who will stock them when they come out?). And the motors are still about a year out.

It's good to see them actually produce a product. I never experienced those old kits so I personally am not super excited. I would like some of the old motors though. I will not hold my breath. Cynical, I know....

"end of the month" might imply they could show up at NARAM with some kits. That would be pretty cool.
