I humbly suggest considering inviting well known rocketry enthusiasts to submit articles/threads on topics of interest such as: New building techniques (e.g. Crazy Jim); designing/building/launching multi stage rockets (.e.g. CJ, Jim Jarvis, and a slew of others); MD design/flight , GPS tracking, photography while in flight, discussions of ex motors, etc. 

Also-possibly have some manufacturers offer discounts on their items to readers on this site. 
I thoroughly enjoy the threads/posts of Mark H (I've been known to incorporate his sage advice into my own builds) and always look forward to his threads. By increasing the number of such threads (as suggested above), I believe that the readership and commercial industry support would increase.

I'm not a marketing pro-but I'd love to see this site flourish!

Thanks,
Fred, L2

  Satellite GPS trackers
Posted by: rdh8 - 08-28-2018, 06:02 PM - Forum: GPS and Trackers - No Replies

I finally found the holy grail of rocketry tracking.
Jerry Larson of UP Aerospace turned me on to them as they use them in their 450,000' flights.

It's the spot.

What is so new is the service is only $15/month.
No ground station, receive your rockets location on a smart phone app.
And the data is all logged on the web.
4AAA batteries powers the waterproof device for 14 days.
Sure, it locks out over 20k, but it's for recovery.
Once you recover your rocket you download the data from your GPS logger.
I like this Sparkfun logger $15 and you have all the GPS data you need.
And the Beitian BN-800 has been working well, gotta love drones driving prices down. And it's right on Amazon and I can get free delivery by Thursday.
It has  U-Blox 8 chipset and is only $20
So for $35 and 3 little wires, your up and running.

  Sunward Hobbies Completes Website Upgrades and Re-launch
Posted by: Sunward - 07-17-2018, 04:40 PM - Forum: Vendor & Manufacturer Display - No Replies

Sunward Hobbies https://www.sunwardhobbies.ca is proud to announce our completed website overhaul and re-launch.

The new website handles e-commerce for the Canadian market for general hobby products, Sunward rocketry, Hypertek, and the CTI ProX line of high power hardware.

These upgrades include:

  • more powerful dedicated server
  • new web software
  • new server back-end software
  • new database engine
  • more secure user passwords
  • new server security features
  • Extended Valuation (EV) SSL https certificate
  • user data encryption
  • drop down menus
  • mobile friendly layout
  • credit cards payment via PayPal and authorize.net
  • display searches based on price, newness, and popularity
  • full integration of blog post to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+
The website boasts a user-friendly, modern and colorful design for quick and easy access to all products and information.

The website redesign took over one year as we looked at a variety of platforms. After experimentation and research, we chose WordPress as a Content Management System and WooCommerce for the business and inventory side. WordPress is the most popular website management system in the world.

Although the overhaul changed Sunwardhobbies.ca, we plan to implement more improvements in the future. We will continue to listen to customer feedback and make changes to better your shopping experience.

CTI ProX line of rocket motors are listed and done on an quote basis. Sunward may implement changes in the future once stock supply is better established at CTI.

  Amazing Lego SpaceX Falcon Heavy
Posted by: bigdave - 06-12-2018, 04:42 PM - Forum: Rocketry-Related - Replies (1)

Saw this on another forum. The first-ever SpaceX proposal to LEGO is about to enter into review. It's extremely impressive. 32" tall and 2018 pieces (get it?). It's only about 100 supporters away from the needed 10,000. There's a link below to see pictures and support.
