By the time I got this built the engines became unavailable as you all know. I have hand launched it and it glides very well. CG is right on as near as I can tell. I have the starter still from Shorty's Basement and it still lights. I may just bungee launch it for some longer glide flights. I had even planned to drop it from my 83 inch span B-29.

I can't go into much detail other than to confirm that the new Jet-X are AWESOME, but they do require 13mm Estes engine mounts.

Unfortunately I highly doubt it. Current export laws for the US and import laws in the EU render it nearly impossible to ship rocket motors overseas. Really quite sad, and those same EU laws are why Rapier is restricted to the Czech Republic now.

Fuse ignition. Basically, just like old Jetex in that regard, but more reliable.
