Nice. How long have you been writing poetry?

Lightbulb New Design: F-77 DayDreamer

I Think I had better quickly post another design before you guys start doing more poetry or something.

Here is the F-77 DayDreamer as I call it. I was trying for a vintage missile (Snark/ Regulas 2) look and I am still pretty far off of achieving that look. The F-77 is quite a bit larger than the mini Jets but seems to fly well.

Thanks and Enjoy, JP

We're like closet Vogons or something.
I took a creative writing course in college, and just to play with peoples heads I turned in a poem for my first assignment. It was a heartfelt piece about taking my Duster to the local drag strip for a night of 1/4 mile fun. It was pretty funny to listen to all of the "serious" writers trying to critique my "poem".
And I ACED that class, btw.

Cool Flashback

Having Flashback:
I remember barely passing english in high school, but in college I aced english 111 and 120. My final term paper was an Sasquatch, titled, Sasquatch- Myth or Reality. Got a A- and I still have it in the attic somewhere. Was and am still not much on poetry, too many rules and words.

One of my friends did "The Life and Times of Buddah" and "Confucious: The Man, The Legend".
I was a history major, so creatively titling my term papers was a little tougher. "Alexander Hamilton - Federalist Money Man" just doesn't have much of a ring to it.

Exclamation New Plan -- Alpha Ex

The classic Alpha was released to the public in late 1966 or early 1967, and has enjoyed the second-longest continuous-production life of any Estes kit. Through the years Estes has produced revisions, stretched versions, plastic-finned versions, already built versions, chromed versions, and fat versions. The Alpha has one notable ancestor (the K-16 Delta), and one semi-half-cousin (the #2011 Super Nova). But what it doesn't have is a true, obvious decendant. It is somewhat surprising that this very stable design was never taken any farther.

Enter the Alpha Ex...

This is a two-stage design using all of the parts from one full kit, plus a few additional parts to create the booster and payload sections. The RockSim file shows this to be every bit as stable using five combinations of motors. Sadly, the B6-0 is now OOP, but one can see from the table that it would produce deployment speeds less than 20 FPS in every case.

Length: 20.125"
Fin Span: 3.976"
Weight: 1.22 oz

B6-0 / A8-5.......895'......15 FPS
B6-0 / B6-6......1218'.......5 FPS
C6-0 / B6-6......1650'......15 FPS
B6-0 / C6-7......1844'......17 FPS
C6-0 / C6-7......2240'......13 FPS

All combinations launch from standard 36" rods, 1/8" dia.

Enjoy!

Exclamation New Plan -- Alpha Goon

And, of course, you just gotta love those Goons!

Here's the next installment of the Goon family -- the Alpha Goon (quite a strong performer)...

Length: 11.625"
Fin Span: 4.64"
Weight: 1.6 oz

A8-3......172'.......9 FPS
B4-4......436'.......6 FPS
B6-4......445'......11 FPS
C6-5......983'......17 FPS

Model only requires a standard 36" rod, 1/8" dia. All motors require a 1/4 oz ballast weight in the tip of the nose cone to bring the margin above 1.00.

Enjoy!

Lightbulb New Design: Specter 1

Nice job on the Alpha Ex and the Goons Craig. Looks like you have been busy.

The Specter 1 design is basically an revamp of the Anger Management design with a ring tail fin and some extra support struts for looks. I think this design would look really good with a black and white roll pattern on the upper BT, however I have not taken the time to learn the Rocksim decal stuff yet.

Thanks Again and Enjoy, JP

Exclamation New Plan -- One Frigid Goon

From the abominable snowman to the Yeti, from T-Rex to Nessie, we all undergo changes in our lives. Sometimes for the better, sometimes...

What used to be a slim, trim Norseman is now just a short and pudgy fella with a bad disposition. He can't help it, though: It's a drag to wear the same oversized Valkyrie hat for 24 years!

Length: 10.375"
Weight: 1.37 oz
Fin Span: 5.64"

A8-3......183'.......9 FPS
B4-4......400'.......9 FPS
B6-4......400'.......5 FPS
C6-5......815'......16 FPS

Model requires no additional ballast, and will launch from a standard 36" rod, 1/8" diameter on all motors listed.

Enjoy!
