Comrades:

For the record, Duende is Spanish for Imp, Goblin or Hobgoblin.

Also for the record, I can't think of any place I've ever launched that would be big enough for a Goblin on an E.

It is cool, though.

Baby Diablo? In Spanish: Diablito


Not exactly baby devil, it translates more like a small spirit of a house, more "Imp" than "Goblin." Dueno de la Casa (owner of the house) shortened to Duende is what the Internet says is the word origin and that's about right; Duende is what all of the unexplainable stuff that happens in an older house gets blamed on.

For a fabulous short story, read The Bottle Imp by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was one of my favorite stories from my youth.

It lost a fair amount of altitude due to windcocking, but 1500' seems like a possibility. We saw the puff of smoke and someone noticed that there had been a separation. I was really looking forward to seeing that big streamer come down, but never saw it until it was in the dirt.

No, this was in the WSR cornfield in Cedarville, OH. It's........expansive. We had two guys touch a mile on Saturday, but only one was recovered.

Bill and Lee,

That's a great flip-flop paint job!

Bob
p.s. I'd be mortified to launch a Goblin on a D-12 much less an E

Some new flyers here in Colorado have been going crazy with Goblins. Drag races, redoing fins with plywood, thru-wall replacements. (Toby Vanderbeek / Vanderburn Rocketry has them now if anyone is so inclined. )
Also flying them on F motors. One guy did his in reverse colors, but had no decals, so I printed him some in yellow. So, I only stumbled on the idea for reversed colors which led to reversed-color decals

I feel somewhat embarrassed admitting that I have never built a Goblin. But mine is getting built. It’s a bit modified. I have a few Goblin nose cones (Estes sold a 4 or 5 pack a few years ago on clearance.) After doing a set of decals for BT60 tube size, and having a BNC-55AO Goblin cone, some design changes were in order. Two tubes sizes, BT60 and BT55) are used, a balsa transition, the 55 nose cone, and one more mod. It had to have a different motor configuration. I have added the 18mm dual, canted motor mount used in the Fliskit Dueces Wild. (I bought a few of these, and the Tres-type 3-motor model, in various sizes from Fliskits during the “Going Out of Business Sale”. Sadly, it looks like these are no longer sold separately.)

I will post pictures once I am a little further along.
