T0SS is toss spelled with a zero, because \[ t_0 \] is often used to figure trajectories.

Subscripting the zero was pretty easy, except it got all spaced out, but then isn't that why many of us are here. ;)

Anyways, T0SSer works well to describe my prototype launcher. Next up is to build a few more Javelins, whose fuselage is a 1/2" PVC tube.

PLANEWOOD DERBY better describes the application as a PINEWOOD DERBY through the air. My current launcher releases at about 28 MPH and a minimum of 7 feet elevation.

I'd like to optimize it for a space typical of what is available at elementary schools, but not sure what that is? If this is something that may interest you, then please IM and/or post thoughts here.

I'm not really sure what you're talking about, but a basketball court is pretty standardized.
