WELCOME! I'm glad that you are already getting info from our group. We have a lot of talent with a lot of information to share. We go off on tangents occasionally but the focus is on building a better pop-pop, whether it be paper, milk carton, plastic, metal or anything we might come up with. The large engines add a whole new dimension to our "game". Please keep us apprised of your projects once you get back into your experimentations.
