Meanwhile, here is a great video which shows the simplified version of the dynamics involved in launching/retrieving such vehicles as Blue Origin and the SpaceX boosters.
This fellow has a number of great ideas and models. What he has done with this "rocket" and its stability systems is pretty remarkable.
He knows how to explain things well. Enjoy!

Dang! I missed it, even though I knew it would be live streamed.

This is quite a feat, a real competition with SpaceX. I have followed both of these projects closely for many months, even get periodic updates directly emailed from my "good buddy" Elon Musk and associates. Seeing the concurrent landings of the 2 boosters from the SpaceX launch was so incredible! Blue Origin is going to be pretty amazing, also.

Hello,

Just a quick note to let you know that Flight Training will begin on Wednesday May 02nd and we will look to start at 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. and will finish just before dusk. This year again, we will be BBQ hot dogs and offering cold drinks at a cost of $1.00 each. We will be meeting and conducting training at the KRCM club field. All of this is providing that the weather cooperates.

Going forward, we will be meeting on Wednesday evenings (same time as noted above) and Sunday's from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. If you want to pursue getting your wings, please come out and join us. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


Thanks,

Jay

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Re: Fokker DVIII Build (updates)
« Last post by Deerslayer on April 24, 2018, 05:59:12 AM »
As you know, Walter has a new one and we were talking about them. A  small number built in WW1 and they only entered service in the very last couple of months of the war, so battle experience was low.

They were blazingly fast for the time!

Brian Coughlin built a replica twenty some years ago. It was featured inthe EAA magazine. He was a really young guy, living right near Old Rhinebeck. I saw it fly just a few days after it s first test flight. What a machine, quick and agile.

Very nice, D!
I hope she flies as well as she looks ... and she probably will.

Interesting camouflage paint scheme on those birds, isn't it. Looks a tad "girly", don't ya think? (Of course, once that big machine gun starts to rattle away at your Englander butt, it may not look so girly, I suppose!)

Thanks Gary, it should fly like a big park flyer, I hope...lol I did some research but couldn't find an exact reason for the lozenge scheme, just that they wanted something that blended with the sky and ground so  enemy planes couldn't see them in the air or on the ground. Wonder if it worked?
