Design Improvements I

As a follow up to Ted's DARS post and Bernie's thoughts about upgrading of clusters and stages, I thought I'd post a few examples here but I will need several threads to get them all in. I want to start with a simple build that's one of Randy's favorites and it's flown many times at many fields arou...

Re: DARS Launch at Gunter 05/21/16

I was wondering about your 3 engine cluster idea, but a couple of things came to mind why not to try it. From one of my first threads on YOLF, the discussion covered many power variations, including sticking engines in all those show tubes. Don't quote me, but IIRC the CP/CG relationship of the com...

Re: DARS Launch at Gunter 05/21/16

If I ever do one of these I'm going to go with 3 C's on the first stage. That's plenty of kick. FWIW, I think the first stage is way under powered and should have been a D by design, just too susceptible to even a soft breeze.

Re: More oppression on other forums

FWIW, there seems to be a real drop off in posts there since the current owners took over. There used to be routinely 4 -5 pages of posts at any given moment. Lately it seems they're doing good to have 2.

Re: More oppression on other forums

Thursday a fan sent me a link to a recent thread there and they asked me to let them know what I thought. While the thread was a bit silly and seemed to me to be a set up for exactly what followed, the main thing I saw was the same old scatter shot, no rhyme or reason moderation continues. There wer...

Re: More oppression on other forums

Re: It's not only big brother watching....

Perhaps you should clear your cache more often. I'm reminded of one of my favorite old flying saucer movies called "The Thing From Another World" It was about a crashed flying saucer and the Martian attacking a polar base. The monster was a very young... James Arnes! In one part a very frightened ma...
