Default New Plan -- One Good Egg

This one started out as just a phrase, and sat on my computer as an empty folder for nearly two years before I decided to do something with it. I wanted to present an egglofter, but not just another "Scrambler" or "Omloid" style of design. Still, there are certain patterns such vehicle design tends to migrate toward, and this one is no exception. Basic large-diameter payload on a slender sustainer body, tricked out with an oversized horse of a motor...

The builder will need to mold the nose cone and transition in FG or VacForm plastic using a custom-turned form. The transition uses an ogive shape, just to make things different...

General specs:

Length: 36.7"
Payload diameter: 2.04" (ST-20 tubing)
Sustainer diameter: 1.34" (ST-125 tubing)
Motor: 29mm (ST-115 tubing)
Weight: 9.25 oz empty
Fin Span: 6.34"

F26FJ-9..........2130'...........22 FPS
F25-9............2458'...........13 FPS
G40W-10..........3280'............5 FPS
G64-10...........3730'...........28 FPS
