Lightbulb New Design: Sky-Jack

Here's a file for anyone wanting to use the 'Recruiter' nose cone in their projects. It's a composite element, made up of six segments. Because this is intended to be a 'nose cone', it cannot be saved as a 'Subassembly'.

Addendum: RockSim says the weight of the nose cone is 0.096 oz, and the SEMROC website shows it as 0.12 oz. Not bad!

Enjoy!


Sometimes Craig and I think so much alike, it scares me. . Here is my guess-timated version of an BC1038 from Semroc in the design below.


This following design that is showing my re-think of the 13mm powered designs. I call this design the Sky-Jack and it uses both my favorite tube the ST10 and nose cone the BC-1038. I would not be afraid to fly this design on an 1/2A3T-4 in a schoolyard or front yard. With the altitude predicted by Rocksim with the A3T-4 I would stick to a good size launch field.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP
