I still do not have my new website ready to open publicly. But I have just about finished up a web page on the early R/C models. So, this is why I was asking some questions a few weeks ago, and about the magazine issue that SkyDancer was published in. The page includes:

A Link to Mark Bundick's history PDF file, from his 2008 NARCON presentation

The false start with the Coaster model that nobody seemed to get to work with R/C.

Doug Malewicki's first successful flights and 3-part article.

Larry Renger's SkyDancer.

The MIT Rocket Society who took the ball and ran with it - including some samples from the "Pulse R/C Journal".

Here is a preview link:

The Mitch Pines mentioned in the article was a member of LIARS Tripoli section (and the North Shore Section NAR section) until at least the mid 1990s. He had a website, but hadn't been updated in years last I checked.

The "Doctor" Morrow, or perhaps one of his sons, was also a member.

Mitch showed me his Coaster literature, and brought a few Coaster kits to launches. He flew a few with FSI motors, as I recall.
