    1/2 A Glider Duration

    Hi, I am going to enter a 1/2 A impulse glider duration contest at a local club launch. The rules allow either rocket gliders or boost gliders. I am new to gliders, so any tips would be helpful. Thanks! Rules

    Clone Crusader Swing Wing Introduction and gauge of interest for a kit

    Alright, I've waffled over this for long enough... Over the last couple years I've been slowly putting together a Crusader Swing Wing clone. Originally designed by Estes in the late 1980's, and only in the catalog for a couple years. My dad had one when I was a young lad that I was obsessed...

    Rocket Paraglider - Flying A Traditional High Power Rocket Back to You!

    So I may be new to this forum but I am not new to rocketry. With that in mind I cam up for this concept of what I like to call "active recovery" where the parachute is controlled in some way. The idea here is that after being inspired by an Radio controlled paraglider I saw, why not incorporate...

    Stratus gale boom warp, any advice?

    I got about 3/4 the way through my stratus gale from apogee and realized my wing doesn't slide now due to warping of the main boom. Just as an aside I did check the boom and when I opened the package it was straight, veeeery slightly bent as I assembled but everything moved fine. Last night I...

    Multi-Roc 36 hour build

    Get an email from my friend on Tuesday afternoon saying "hey... the weekend looks good, lets go launch Saturday." Our field isn't huge, but plenty big enough for a D-motor.

    RumbleBee-C Build

    Gotta admit I was kind of intrigued with the idea of a BG that used a Vector Pod (angled up) to get the glider to boost straight, and I was looking for a larger, sturdy 18mm flier after building primarily 13mm models. So I decided to give the RumbleBee-C a try, especially since it’s a 4X...
