The fact you have to say it is amusing to me.

How about a 29mm bigger Polaris or Comet. 3"?

A few things from the forum at NARAM last night - a new boost glider that appeared to have some Shrox-like characteristics, a single stage SAM 83(?) that looks like a companion to the Sasha, confirmation that the current BLACK POWDER 29mm motors are as big as they’re going to get BUT a very strong hint that more powerful PSII motors are coming, and that new PSII builder kits will be upscale versions of classic Estes/Centuri designs. Plus it sounded like B14s are coming back. Oh, and a little fly and forget mini rocket called the Luna Bug - think Mosquito with curved footpad equipped fins.

One other thing from the forum - if there are things you want to see from Estes, posting about it on either the company Facebook page or the Estes fan page is the best way to get your message to Estes leadership.

Awesome news! Did anyone get pictures or video of the presentation??
As for the glider, I assume the new one on the Estes website is what you saw:

Will buy a truckload of B14s if they truly come back.
In all delay flavors... Hope for a -3 along with the -0, 5, 6, and 7.

Scott_650's verrrry passing and semi-buried comment "Oh, and B14s may be coming back" to this YORF audience is akin to stepping into the house and casually saying "Yes, honey, I'll mow the grass...after the alien space ship in the back yard takes off."

Absolutely! It's one of the few small motors I never got to experience. They were around when I started, but I never bought any. I've done A8-x clusters which kinda-sorta parallels the thrust curve, but extra weight and bulk comes with it.

The question I've had is, does Estes have any direct involvement in the fan page? Assuming they mean "Estes Model Rockets." Or do they just monitor it?
