Me, I'm waiting to see Craig's Antares "done justice" in RS9 , along with a bunch of other things I couldn't model before. <big evil grin>

Thumbs up Updated design: Jay's ZETA

I've been getting a handle on simulating tube and ring fins in RockSim 8 using Bruce S. "teflonrocketry1" Levison's techniques to make RS sim correctly.

I simmed the two ST-5 tube fins on my Zeta design incorrectly, so here are the updated files.

(Craig, this doesn't count as new since it's a re-release, but make sure you snap this one up for BARCLONE. )

Default Solaris

This one isn't as fancy as some others I like it.
The Solaris is one that I designed and built this summer. I don't usually build my designs right away but this one I had to build.
I have flown it five times with great results. Once each on a B6-4 and B4-4 and three times on a C6-5. The last flight landed in a tree.
I plan to build another one this winter.


Alt. DV
B4-4 319ft. 16.35fps
B6-4 331ft. 9.08fps
C6-5 812ft. 18.85fps

You haven't seen my stuff on the sketchpad yet. Twisted is just another design...

I'm wanting to see Antares myself. Two prototypes have flown successfully, so this would just be a clean-up run. But it should look much better than the current version...

Looks good to me, too. Consider it added to the list. I thought that last image looked familiar, as I've seen similar endings to a few of mine in the past...

495...

Only 5 more needed!!!

Tony,

Sometimes less is more.

Cool design, and a nice paint job! I can't blame you for wanting to build a replacement.


BTW, interesting avatar. (I just finished watching all 5 seasons of Babylon 5 on DVD, and found some "followup" novels by Peter David at the public library.)


Cheers,

Thanks.

I watched all of the 5 seasons again this summer for about the fifth or sixth time.

With its disproportionately large top and small bottom, it reminds me of Bugs Bunny's friend Crusher Doug

Thumbs up Estes Wolverine #0861 -- 1.36X upscale

I put this RockSim file together a *long* time ago (late 2004, early 2005) after actually building one of these in 2004-ish. (Although I used a PNC-55AC for the first two flights. )

And since upscales qualify as "new" designs per our recent discussion here, well... Here ya go.
