PML's Kwik Switch

I started building my 4th PML kit, the Ariel.  I find PML kits an absolute joy to build!  I'm a big fan of the Quantum tube as well (for finishing purposes).  

Anyway, the Ariel comes with the Kwik-Switch Motor mount.  This is my first exposure to this system and Wow!  I like it.

Simple design, easy to build and I'm looking forward to flying with it!

What is your experience with the Kwik-Switch?

System Crashes, but Nonetheless, Here's the Update.

Site has been up and down since the 24th. Sorry. We are trying to get a grip on it.

We have added many new reviews and are working on formatting many others. Keep 'em coming!

I was really busy with the site during this period: Eliminated the self-maintained eList for a service mailing list. Changed the left header to tell when EMRR is online (verses number of chatters since chat is not used). This was a big change. At the same time I discovered that the review html's were not updating the number of guests, so I made a tweak and now they do, but I had to delete every review in the cache. The site may slow down a bit while the reviews are being re-cached.

Please send me any high res. pictures you have of your rockets, launchs, people, etc. for consideration in our 2009 EMRR Calendar. (Yes, I'm trying to avoid the end of year rush!)
