Ah! That's a much better (clearer) explanation than the last one I got on how to use that feature. I'll have to try that with a future design.


Thanks yet again, and cheers,

Exclamation New Plan -- MARK III

Another basic 3FNC, but drawing on that compound fin step discussed earlier. I was looking for simplicity, as well as performance. The silver-color bands are an optional trim using cardstock; but silver automotive trim tape could be used instead. Solid black overall. Give it a high-gloss finish.

This design should be a good flyer for your collection of "usual suspects"...

The deployment velocities are at the high end when using the B4 and C6 motors, but not excessively so. You might reef the shrouds when flying with these motors. The A8 gives a nice flight with a gentle deployment at apogee for small fields.

All three motors will reach safe flight V in the length of a standard 36" rod.

A8-3......238'......9 FPS.....595 FPS/S
B4-4......569'.....26 FPS.....750 FPS/S
C6-5.....1250'.....27 FPS.....766 FPS/S

Enjoy!

Thumbs up New design: Anger Management

Nice Mark III Craig, and yes I really like the tapered fin design as well.

Last week it was spring break at the school I am remodeling and everyone was gone for the week. Yeah! I was running a couple of minutes late so I quickly parked and ran in to work. Then about 2:30 pm I notice a police van parked next to my truck and proceded to see what was going on. What was going on was that I was getting a ticket for parking in a handicap spot in an empty parking lot. $$$250.00 dollar fine
I said "whatever" and went back to work. I comitted a few choice ranting and swearings after the police left though.

I am taking it to court along with the Superintendant as witness that the school was concidered a work zone during spring break.

Your prayers are appreciated. This may really cut intp my rocket budget!

Here is the design Anger Management I drew up, I helped relax me after a stressful day.

Thanks Again, JP

I've seen similar things in very bad dreams...

Usually the result of too much sugar too late at night...

Exclamation New Plan -- Stealth

This model was not designed to be a streamer-recovery type, but rather a boost-glider. I'm posting it now in the streamer mode, because it appears to actually be able to fly like this, and not too badly, either. I am still working on the BG version. If I fly three of them at the same time, maybe they'll sing harmony. One in falsetto...

All-black, glossy finish, with low-vis ghost-gray decals of your choice.

1/4A3-3T.....175'......5 FPS.....36" rod
1/2A3-4T.....340'.....13 FPS.....36" rod

Do not use the full A3-4T. Too much power, too much tail weight.

Enjoy!

Lightbulb New Design: Interceptus Maximus

Very nice work on the Stealth Craig. You might concider a Krylon Ultra Flat Black for the finish. It may be more of an radar absorbing coating.

Here is the Interceptus Maximus I whipped up a few days ago. Some day I need to learn how to so the sims for the pod NC. Someday.

Also with this design I want to wish Craig sweet dreams.

Lightbulb New Design: Orbit Star

Here is the Orbit Star design I came up with. This design might look better with some porthole decals down both sides and a cockpit decal on the nose come. It's a little more part wise than most of my designs. The fins may somewhat difficult to cut because of the sharp angles but it should make a good design to build. I hope.

Thanks and Enjoy, JP

Bill, if I could manage to keep a straight face, I'd say, "Them's *fightin'* words" (what, with me being a native Idahoan, and all)... but I'll just have to admit my initial response was,

ROTFLOL!!!

Thumbs up BARCLONE's Burgeoning!

Craig,

Sorry to take so long to respond to your post!

While I feel like I'm a *long* way behind James in submitting designs (at least, when it comes to sheer numbers), I appreciate you saying "Thanks!" (Sorry I'm not adept at graphics. Otherwise, I'd have more interesting decal sheets. )

You may not have noticed the hit counter lately at BARCLONE, but we just crossed the 20,000 mark. With the most-recent batch of RKT files that I've sent up to Scott, we have nearly doubled (if not actually doubled) the number of designs available. That means we've generated over 250 designs in the last four years.
Does that mean the number has doubled in the last year?


Quote:
I'm excited that the BARCLONE concept has finally started picking up. It's beginning to feel like what I had hoped it would be, which is a place where builders and designers could share their ideas with others.
It's also nice to have an outlet for the Creative Fits which seem to possess us from time to time. (GET THIS THING OUT OF MY *HEAD,* ALREADY! )


Cheers, as always,

--Jay
