AHEM!! *Tonight* was last night.


The Z7 looks pretty awesome...strong candidate for DOY winner if you ask me (which you didn't, but...)

I'd love to build Doug's Titan. That is just too cool. I WILL build that if it becomes a kit.

It would rock on a D12-7 and 4 A10-P's.:D

FlisKits would like to congratulate Doug Gardei for his winning entry Titan.

Congratulations Doug!

I would also like to point out that this was another very tough month to pick a winner from. All 3 of the designs are great in their own way and I love them all.

Fortunately, I am not the only one in the selection process, so some of the pressure is spread around a bit :)

August is open and we already have one entry from the Netherlands!

What a great way to hit 4100 posts! :D :D

I won? I WON! I WON!!!!

First I want to thank Fliskits for their awesome parts..

And Elmers for their sticky glue...

And Xacto for their sharp blades to use to cut the fins

and Jake and his wife for putting up with me while I took over their dining room table!

THIS IS FOR YOU!!! (holding up Award) THIS IS FOR YOU!!!



Ironically, it was built from the parts I won from my last winning entry ;)

go for it :) We don't have any such restriction. I am not sure if the NAR does.

That's why we did not vote for you as a new moderator ;)

You mean I could have made it if I had just sent it?
Aww, man. ;)

Jim, do you have any rule against submitting a Descon entry into your DOM?
hint, hint

That goes against the DESCON rules, to have your entry in more then one contest or publication (except for your personal site).

That can't be true. DESCON, AFAIK, only takes possesion of the entry, not the rocket design. And I believe it says 'previously published' and nothing about submitting it in a future contest!

I'm not really sure.
I have an entry in Descon only right now.
But I figured since it was done, and made with mostly Fliskits parts, then why not enter it in the DOM also.
The only parts that aren't from Fliskits are the balsa for the fins and the chute. :)

But I have plenty of ideas I could use for the DOM if I can't submit this one. I just have a hard time getting them completed in time.
You know, I end up putting it aside to work on something else, and then putting that aside for another idea. Jason knows what I'm talking about ;). Big Deuce, no a Big Sandhawk, no wait, a big something else, or maybe an 8" Big Daddy. Ahhh Ahhh, brain overload. Just kidding with you Jason. I'm just glad I'm not the only one to do things like that. :D

well, *we* (FlisKits) certainly have no rules against it. The only such rule that I could imagine is to not submit any design that legally belongs to someone else...

"rules? We don't need no stinkin' rules!"

For the uninformed in our midst (namely me :)), what's DOM?

Design of the month I think, but this thread is 100 years old.

No kidding. I thought for a second that it was up and running again!
Geeze, so did I... Was thinking "Man, what did I *DO* last night!??!" LOL

whew!

Yeah, DOM is for Design of the Month. It was a contest we held at FlisKits but I had to close it down as I didn't have (and still don't) the time to manage it properly.

Some day it will be back, but not today ...
