Those similarities being three centering rings with a 75mm motor mount, nose cone 21", diameter, electronics capable.

Although your real intent was a true 4X upscale I found it interesting that the Big Nuke extended with your fin design and a coupler could be built pretty close to your sustainer with currently available components. If I had seen your design before I built that kit it would have certainly have been a consideration to try that approach since the CD was always one of my favorites.

Actually your 4" Cherokee Double-J is the design size I like best.

So when did you say this kit would be available?

just kidding

Default Updated Plans from earlier this year...

All,

I have run all of the PUNK series through RockSim tonight, and finally proved to myself that these rockets are as stable as I felt they should have been. They are, so I'm going to post the RKT files here for everyone to take a look at.

For those who may not remember the Punks, they're a series of simple 4FNC models that stay about the same height, but are each larger in diameter than the one before. The phrase I used to describe them was "Punks -- They don't grow up, they just GROW!"

These will make great flyers for just getting into the air quickly without a lot of breakable fiddly bits. All but the largest one use streamers for recovery. They are all reasonably good performers, too, with one having a 1600' service ceiling.

Exclamation Revised plan -- New PDF -- Antares

Well, this one is finally a PDF! This was one of my earlier designs from 2003, and one of the only known BARCLONE designs to have been built prior to the Cherokee Double-D. I've been wanting to get this one written into a more traditional instruction guide format ever since it was first posted, but other things kept me from it. Now I can sit back for a bit and relax...

I need you to do something for me before I post this to the BARCLONE website. As far as I know (and understand this -- it's past midnight here in Mobile as I post this, and my eyes are buggin' out from all the text...) the text is complete and the sequence is sound. Read through the PDF sheets and see if you can follow the flow. Try to visualize all of the tools I had to create for this model to be built (remember, too, that I'm hoping others will download this plan and build it, not just you experts... ). Let me know if there is a step out-of-place, or a step missing, or just not explained right. Imagine how the tools work, and if the steps to build those are adaquate, or need work. I want to improve these plans as much as possible, so feedback is important!

To download the PDF (which is too large for this forum), use this url:

Thanks!

Thanks, guys. It was a very early effort at doing something that wasn't just 4FNC.

Exclamation Updated Plan -- Drakken

This one was presented here on the forum in a semi-finished draft. It's not on the website yet. I'm starting to get the hang of RockSim, and I've been able to make some improvements to the appearance of the 3D image.

Ummm...

Yes.

I haven't had much of a chance to try out the new features, however.

How about you?
