Default BARCLONE Update Alert

Everyone,

The first of several updates to the BARCLONE website have now been posted and those plans are available for download. It has taken longer to do this than was originally planned, but shortly we hope to have all of the 2006-Series plans up and visible. One of our goals was to reach 300 plans before December, and I think we accomplished that before September. The new goal is to reach 500 plans before the end of 2007; if we have the same degree of contributions that we had in 2006, we should reach this goal just as easily.

Thanks to all who participated!

It's your fins. I'm assuming that you wanted 0.09380 instead of your 0.9380 for the thickness of the fin material since these fins are almost an inch thick? You also selected "custom" for the fin material and that has a "zero" mass for the fins. Instead choose balsa or one of the other materials.

I changed the design to balsa and 0.09380 for the fin thickness and it flys fine.

The 3D export did look kinda cool .....

Doh! Thanks

Lightbulb New Designs: Mini Jets 13, 14, 15

Had to take a trip back in time on this thread to see when I last posted a Mini Jet and what # it was . Finally here are the last of the Mini Jets, #13, #14, and #15. Looking back at the download number on these designs Mini-Jet #4 seems to be the favorite so far.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP

I've done it myself before. This Centuri Vector-V attempt was from a couple of years ago:

Notice that even the "vanes" are chunky!

OK folks this one has me stumped. Flight simulation says it won't leave the rod and 2D profile shows it starting parallel to the ground (launch rod @ 0 degrees). Did I miss something? Software problems? Any help would be appreciated.



A person has to really watch rocksim on a few things it wants to do automatically. When doing paper transitions in rocksim be sure to make them hallow and not solid. I also use the paper thickness of .0110 for Carl's cardstock material. Craig and I have also come to believe that Rocksim allows too much drag for ringtail and tube fins as well .

Hope this helps, JP

Default BARCLONE Model Count

Folks,

I'd been saying we punched through 300 models back around September, but that I really didn't know just how many we had. Now that we're seeing the bulk of these designs heading into the wild, I had an opportunity to take an inventory of all the designs I show in the "PROVEN" category. I will post a text file attachment for everyone to look through at the bottom of this message. This may not be a complete listing yet, as there may be a few designs posted recently to this thread which are not accounted for. I thought I'd share this list with everyone to look through, as I want everyone who has posted a design to know that your design is still going to make it to the website.

The count of designs on this list is 387...


Important notes:

1. The Tau Zero is listed, but is not currently scheduled for posting to the website.

2. There is a double entry for the 1974 Parts Demo. The number above reflects these changes.

3. Several folders have multiple models grouped together. The number above does NOT reflect that discrepancy.

Lightbulb New Design: Ion Explorer

This 18mm design was inspired by another one of those shows on the Science Channel . I call it the Ion Explorer and its "different" to say the least.
Weather seems to be somewhat improving around here or maybe its the cabin fever giving me the false hope of an early spring .

Thanks Again and Enjoy, JP

Lightbulb New Design: NX Proto

Whoa, I just saw this thread slipping down into the shadowy abiss an realized I how long its been since a new design was posted. Well call me slacker no more , because here is a new design I call the NX Proto for the lack of a better name. This on falls into the VR class of designs and flies well on 18mm motors from A8-3 to C6-5.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP
