As of now, it is called the RMX1. When finished it will be about 7 ft tall, with a wingspan of 5 ft or so.

An upscale Mars Lander like the one at NARCON a few years ago is a good idea of the scale and scope. Plus one big motor!! (OK, it might be clustered) This one will be truly wild demonstrator of things to come!!

I started on the frame last night, I think this is the project to let you all in on as I work on it, it just might be the thing that changes the world. My wife will be taking pictures. Keep thinking SSTO...

I'll keep a page updated about the RMX1 project.

I'll have some pics up tomorrow. The neighbors are getting curious...

I am planning on a 98 mm motor eventually.

Here is a photo of the frame of the RMX-1 and a render of the frame. That cross piece is the main spar. I'll be drilling out more holes to reduce weight.
