The 2003 FlisKits Design of the Year (DOY) is now closed!

Our first DOY contest is closed and judging will begin later this month. This is *so* exciting!!!

I am not aware of any other company holding such an event and it is with great excitement that we get to do it. As many of you know, the winner of the design of the year contest (selected from the first place winners from that years DOM contests) has the chance to become a manufactured kit in addition to prizes yet to be determined (this is all *so* new to us too :) )

Keep watch as we struggle with the difficult task of selecting a winner!

NOTE: Not all designs are necessarily manufacturable by FlisKits (perhaps due to certain components not being available and such), HOWEVER, such manufacturability is NOT a requirement to win. In that respect, it is possible that the winning entry would not be put into manufacturing. We will cross that bridge when we get to it.

For now, lets wish the best of luck to:

March: Kevin Johnson's Foxy BG

April: Kevin Johnson's Starship

May: Daren Humphries' Freedom Forge Missile

June: Daren Humphries' Nebulous Cluster

July: Kevin Johnson's Trireme

August: No Entries

September: Clive Davis' Papernator

October: Bruce Levison's Cork Screw

November: Jason Toft's Terrier Sandhawk

December: To Be announced soon!

Good luck one and all!

While those are all great rockets, I have to say I would love to see Jason's Terrier Sandhawk offered as a kit. That thing is just awesome given the success he had with the clustering, gap staging, and the recovery system in the booster. It may even have to be Fliskits first skill level 5 kit.

Good luck everyone. I hope to have a few entries for 2004.

Jim,

Before you decide, how about soliciting feedback from anyone who's built one of the DOM winners. i downloaded instructions for the Levinson Corkscrew but, simple as it is, haven't had time to build or fly it. I'm really curious to know if anyone has tried any of the more complex designs.

I'd also be curious if you tracked which were the most downloaded designs.
