This thread sounds great.
I would like to see an example of the "Black Hole Cygnus Probe Ship" kit that got produced, but had to be destroyed due to some movie executive clown revoking an approved design AFTER production.
My understanding is that a few escaped destruction....
Estes should have sued over that one and cut all future ties with Disney.

Thanks for posting this Craig!
Your filing/archive system is more organized than mine.

I don't recall who makes/made it, but I've seen (in an R/C magazine--it might have been "Flying Models") a small, electric-powered EP foam F-117 model, which is/was small enough to be flown as a boost-glider.

I second George's suggestion--a YouTube demo video of your Laser Launch Controller would be very interesting! Also, speaking of talking launch controllers (no pun intended):

One that would enable the owner to record his or her own countdown (or maybe audio of Jack King counting down a Gemini or Apollo launch) would be interesting. It could also be used to record countdowns in other languages, which would be of interest, including to teachers. For example, a launch of a scale Kappa-7 model could be counted down using audio recorded from a Japanese sounding rocket firing in a YouTube video..."Ju, ku, hachi, nana, roku, go, yan, san, ni, ichi, zero!" (Also, MPC's Vostok kit contained a countdown card that gave the 5-second countdown in Russian, phonetically written [see: http://www.oldrocketplans.com/mpc/m...0/mpc3-0700.pdf ].)

Was this plane in the R/C mag what Estes based their F-117 model on?

I'll have to look for this article. Thanks.
