But then one day around 2003, while surfing the web, I came across Aerotech’s website and discovered this interesting thing called, High Power Rocketry! I remember thinking, WOW...M motors! The biggest I ever flew as a kid was a D, because E’s were not made yet. I thought to myself, “ I need to find out more about this!”.
With that information filed away, I finally was able to attend a launch in 3 Oaks Michigan in 2005. I went with my 6 year old son and my father. I was blown away and haven't looked back since.
I ordered a few Estes kits that I built with my son and flew them at the school year near our house. That brought back so many great memories that I just have to start building bigger rockets and fly them with bigger motors.
About a year and a half later, I got my TRA Level 1 cert in 3 Oaks. The next year, I was able to get my Level 2, again in 3 Oaks, and a few years later, my Level 3 at LDRS28.
So why and I doing this?
Matt Strum started selling railbuttons in 1998 and had a very successful on-
It is my goal to keep supplying inexpensive railbuttons for our hobby and keep Matt's vision moving forward. He was able to sell thousands and I hope to be able to do the same for many years to come.
