Lightbulb New Design: Shadow Fox

Here is a new design I call the Shadow Fox. I seem to have gotten a little lucky with this design as it flies on four types of 18mm motors with excellent Dv's. I have also started to add a few design changes to my Rocksim files. I will try to remember to add both Kevlar and elastic shock cords to the design files rather than just the elastic I have used in the past. Also have decided to go back to the engine hook, where possible, just for the convienence and speed of loading.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP

OK, everyone, with the addition of JP's "Shadow Fox" we are officially at 488 . That means all we need is to post the "12 designs" that James has promised us, and we will have reached the target of 500.

Lightbulb New Design: Mini Hostile Intentions

Since the topic of late has been of upscales/ downscales, how about an mini Hostile Intentions 13mm. With all the parts available from Carl at Semroc this downsizing was fairly easy to do. This design is only 10 inches long and still has has maintained the same design styling of its bigger brother. The flight specs and DV's seem to be good on three of the 13mm motors as well.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP

Everyone should take note: In the recent "Peak of Flight" newsletter from Apogee, TVM makes mention of RockSim 9, and while he doesn't indicate a firm target date, the fact that he mentions it at all is of great interest. TVM mentions some features in the new version, and I hope they allow us some additional freedom in what we can incorporate into the new designs.

James Pierson's latest design post will put us at 501 when the "12" are posted. Now we need to come up with a new milestone to achieve. I propose we begin an all-out effort to flex our muscles and strain our creative juices, and see how long it takes us to reach 1000 designs! There are over a dozen contributors to the BARCLONE project. If each member could design just ONE NEW MODEL EACH WEEK, we would reach that goal before the end of 2009.

Is this feasible? Or is it nuts?

Both!... Feasible and Nuts. No promises but I will do my best.

Here is an interesting design with an sleek body style I call the Swordfish 1, mainly for the lack of a better name. This design also has good Dv's and reaches good altitudes for its size. You know... when I start a "fish theme" I must be straining for an original idea .

Nice-looking theme, JP. And it's hard to beat those numbers. Good ideas come from strange sources sometimes...

Lemme tell ya, I was drooling all over Newsletter #221, which shows that we'll be able to put nose cones on pods, fins on fins, pods on fins, fins on pods on fins... (insert "drooling" emoticon here!).

On the Apogee website, TVM mentions that RS9 should be available in time for Christmas. (I've already set my $100+ aside.)

(Hispanic accent) "Okay Meestair Craig, ju know dat ju are chust craysee, no?"

(Stage whisper) Now *watch.* We'll make 1000, and he'll raise the number AGAIN!


All the same, see a following post with my contribution for this week. Or this month, given my decidedly non-James Pierson-like output capabilities.


Cheers,

Thumbs up New Design: XPL Experimental

I almost submitted this design late last night, until I decided it needed some more detailing. Hence the birch "Dowel Detail" assemblies (the middle dowel is 1" from the front of the body tube), which also added some additional nose weight. Then I threw the 3 CR-1013 centering rings on as well.

Surprisingly simple, but it follows my general design philosophy of, "Put a *bunch* of different-looking parts together."

(This is what I get for hanging out with JP. )
