Exclamation Two New Plans -- VR Probe 118 &&& VR Probe 124 -- Update

As mentioned, after I posted the first set of plans for these models, I started thinking (a truly dangerous activity -- don't try this at home... ) and realized there might be a better way to build the design. The following plans are improved, in lower overall weights, ease of construction, and flight performance.

New 18mm Weight: 2.5 oz
New 24mm Weight: 2.25 oz

New performance specs:

C6-5........584'......Dv 25 FPS......36" launch rod
C11-5.......553'......Dv 12 FPS......36" launch rod
D12-5......1012'......Dv 8 FPS.......36" launch rod

Enjoy!
