Closing in on 500!

July 16, 2008

Our list of designs is closing in on a milestone — 500 original model rocket designs, many of which have actually been built and flown “in the wild”. No matter how you look at it, this represents a sizeable collection of work to choose from.

Not every design is a serious challenge, neither has every design been proven. Some of our designs are pure nuttiness. But we think even our unproven work offers enough of a starting point that a working model can be built from it, and we encourage you builders to try making some of these designs fly. Show us your models when you finish them. Tell us about your models when you build them, and especially if you fly them successfully! This gives us the feedback needed to improve those designs, and the encouragement to keep working on still more exotic ideas.
