Exclamation Jay's Prometheus

Here's Prototype I of my Prometheus from June 2006.

The other 3 photos are from Bill E. "Wallyum's" launch about a year later on June 30, 2007.

BARCLONE's own Craig McGraw, as well as John Thro and Andrew Scott, have all built and flown (I *think!*) their own 18mm versions of this model.

I've got to rehab mine. The ST-5 connector tube became crimped after one of its flights, and not due to hangar rash or landing impact, either. I'm a bit nervous about using anything over an A8 in power; I think if I get around to building a second one, I'll use a 13mm mount. It really doesn't need more power than that for good flights.

The Ready To Build (RTB) version is much heavier, but I'm afraid that adding a couple of 13mm engine casings inside the ST-5 tube would make it REALLY heavy.

The Prometheii are a couple of more projects currently on the back burner.

What, you're leaving out the SLS version on 24/29mm motors?

Is that a TORC launch? I don't recognize that field. Haven't flown around houses since the Lebanon YMCA days.

Nope--Harrodsburg KY, probably 2 years ago. That was an official beta of an SLS version Jay was (is?) thinking about selling.

How far off of US 27?
I have one of these kits. Once my FSI mania wears off it's first to go in the build pile.

It's way on the back burner just now.

'Cause real life happens, y'know.
