Default New Design: Cloud Splitter

Looks good Jay and thanks for the parts list .

I tried to post this design the other night but the net was soooo sloooow or maybe I had my tower turned to an UHF channel or something . Sunspots that muat have been it .

This next design called the Cloud Splitter (Name inspired by Craig's Cloud Seeker) has layer fin design along with a ring tail. This fin method I used a few years ago on the Static Probe design th help reienforce the narrow pointed fins against flight tear off. I used a simular method on the Cloud Splitter to help reinforce the pod looking fins that are attached to the ring tail fin as these pod fins have only a 3/4 inch root area to glue to. This fin designs system is somewhat elaborate and may be time concuming to build but should be structually sound in flight. We hope .


Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP
