So now that he is working on the kit, I guess we will all have to buy at least two so that he can get back to those motors....

Chas

THAT sounds like a great idea.

I finished the prototype. (I know. Photo needed.) It is so small, I am thinking 13mm instead of RTB. Carlisle B sounds good!

I think I experienced a little temporary dumbness last week, I have only just understood that not only were you showing me the proto NC, but that I could make adjustments and save as a different file. I must confess to feeling that I stumbled into a DoD server and would be making earth shattering changes!

Thanks for the access, and for the tool. Is there a way to delete a design once I have saved it in error? I did a "Save As" and a (0) was appeneded to the file name. Pretty sure you do not want your server clogged up with dubious files...

For grins I ought to sim a 4" Orion. It would turn heads that's for sure.

Thanks for the offer! I'll shoot you an e-mail.

The Baby Orion was too fragile for RTB. It does look good, if very small. The attached photo shows the comparison to a full-size Orion. Engine is 1/2A-4T or A3-4T.

There are still a lot of balsa pieces!

Cut it out guys,

You're distracting Carl from finishing the Nose Cone Designer/ Virtual Lathe.

I get the feeling that Carl can cover pretty well all points of the compass with equal capability.

Thanks John for the original suggestion and to everyone else for comments. That was fun to do.

The webpage additions have been harder than the nose cone designer program. It is easy to add a part manually, but harder to add one automatically.
