I picked up a Vapor from a Hobby Lobby near where I work, but they didn't have the Olympus.

The Vapor looks like a great kit for the BP 29 motors, and at $15, is a fantastic deal. Just a little 29mm tubing, and it's a Low cost Star Orbiter. I'd skip the screw-on retainer, since it's unlikely to get many flights.

They just opened a new store near me, and I picked up a Luna Bug, Cherokee-E, Nike-X, and Olympus. That Olympus decal really cracks me up.

I've been getting the runaround from my local Hobby Lobby store concerning ordering the Vapor, since that store doesn't stock it. They claim that even if I had the SKU number, which of course I didn't, they can't order it if they don't already stock it. Which is one of the most retarded things I have ever heard of.

I've got someone on the Facebook group willing to pick me up one and ship it to me, but I am in the process of talking to Corporate and finding out exactly what the deal really is.

I think it is cool you post here.

What is your suggested 29mm rocket(s) bigger than a BT-60? Something a wide audience can fly with F motors in sports fields.

I can't seem to find an Olympus at any of the HL's near me.

Give it time. They had just one at just one of the three local HLs. I went home with it. Now there's zero.
