That is a hoot! Looks like a great park flyer. Things sure have changed since the last time I had a radio in my hands. I have a nice 10 acre pasture across the street that would be perfect for that. bad for rockets though...to narrow.:rolleyes:

Ever hear of JATO?? Ok Rocket your mission is figure out how to put a A8-3 on it for a rocket assist boost!!! Actually one of our motors would probably rip a Slow Stick apart. Ok Who will be the first to try it??

yeah you really need to make a motor with a regressive thrust curve. spike and then long burn....it would be cool

Apogee D3, E6, or F10. End burning motors with burn times over 6 seconds. Choose depending on the aircraft weight.

I'm pretty sure he developed it for a BO (Big Ol') flying boat he was developing for the Navy...been a long time since I read that book though...:p

Cool plane, Rocket Trike! I really want to build some of the rubber band powered planes...they look like some fun - much better than those cheap ones you get by the cash register at the hobby shop.
