Estes Information Overload!

I just discovered a mildly hidden directory on the Estes website: here. It includes instructions for almost every kit they've ever produced, images for most of them, downloads including motor charts, a few old catalogs, old educational stuff, and more. Lots'o useful stuff. It has all their news kits that JimZ doesn't cover. I managed to find instructions for a smaller Patriot kit, in which I found that the kit is made not of one main body tube, but instead 2 main tubes and a smaller tube for the upper section, which bodes well for including a payload section, mid-body separation, and possibly recovering the payload section and motor section on 2 different parachutes.
