First I should legitimize this idea. I have heard of other forum ideas bounce around (High Performance and the like), and they are too specialized to really warrant another entire forum. However, on the general discussions forum group, there are three "somewhat" specialized forums, namely:
- Recovery/Ground Support
Propulsion: The stuff that makes your rocket go up (most of the time).
Software/Electronics: The stuff that makes you confident that your rocket won't explode (most of the time).
Recover/Ground Support: The stuff that makes your rocket come in slow (most of the time).
Now, this "Guidance Forum" is just the best name I can think of at the moment, but it is essentially a fin forum. It would be a place for people who want to discuss fin shapes, sizes, and types with each other. Topics could range from tube fin design/shape to how fin shapes effect flight profile to what materials work the best for different conditions to reinforcement under different stresses.
This would be a great resource for new people and old hands alike as we all put fins on our rockets (most of the time), and they all have shapes.
What do you guys think, would this be a beneficial forum for you? I know I have a couple questions regarding fins that don't technically belong in any other forum, as I save the MMX, LPR, MPR, and HPR forums for entire rockets, not just specific questions regarding one aspect.
