They are not unstable. Estes just didn't want to carry though with it. I think the LexxJet is proof my designs are stable when built properly.Shrox did team up with Estes on his designs. Unfortunately, Estes won't be releasing the kits. I believe the quote from Estes is that that they were too unstable.
Oh, I'm in full agreement with you concerning stability. Notice I stated that "the quote from Estes . . ."They are not unstable. Estes just didn't want to carry though with it. I think the LexxJet is proof my designs are stable when built properly.

I have my own personal ideas of why they weren't released. In my business we do it all the time . . .
Regardless, my designs are not unstable if built properly, mainly by following the instructions and using the provided materials. Of course, there are rare instances where something may have been omitted or lost, but that happens even on cars.As we learned in our "BQMS" training, never try to retype something and call it a quote since it can easily mutate if one or more words is altered.
Simply point to the original source and avoid any possibility of changing the meaning.
Plus, when you make a copy of something - even if it is accurate at the time - when the original is updated your copy will live on in the older now-incorrect version.
That is why I try to provide links to people to answer questions instead of simply retyping the information. I have no desire to take credit for the massive amount of info already out on the web and would rather send folks to the soource of the info. other examples would be things like the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code or motor test data. The link to those will live on and when you click over there you will get the latest version. If you copy/save it you will have a possibly outdated version and you amy not even be aware of that.
At work, the prime example of this would be engineering drawings. We use the online database to view the latest released version. If we print a copy, it is immediately uncontrolled and could become outdated at any second.
I personally found it interesting that Estes stated they didn't want people to have to add nose weight, when up until recently that's how they got many of their designs to fly themselves.
I guess after the SS1, they gave up eh?
I know I've seen the HiFlyer unstable without clay, but have they started including clay in the kit?Hiflyer
We could go on all day!
OK. My list was of models introduced with no clay or way too little clay that they then had to add or increase the clay on once the reports of regular and properly constructed production models flying unstable started to filter back to Penrose.Super Neon comes with clay, 4 pats IIRC. I do not know if they've started including clay with the HiFlyer.
Poopy clay has been gone for years.So when did Estes get away from poopy-clay then? Timing with the Shrox kits is interesting . . .
