He still posts sometimes on the ROL forums.  I will also forward this to
his email.

You're welcome to check out mine too at  http://www.vahpr.com The booster is
in primer and should be completed shortly (if the East Coast thaws out any
time this spring).

Philip was talking about an ever bigger one!

Lots of good info there.
I will have to take a closer look when I
get back to a real computer seeing as
I am reading and writing on my Pocket
PC.
The thing that e***d me about your
sight was that you made the booster
fins to shape.
This is some info I was trying to get.
I want to build my fins up in the
middle but I didnt know how thick at
the root edge and how thick at the
tip(for the raised ridge in the middle).
I dont know if the VCP files had that
info because I cant run that program
here. But if you could get me that info
it would be great.
Just the sizes you used and I can scale
it from your 7.5in airframe to my 5.5in
airframe.

Thanks for the info

Hope to see you at NYPower

Robert,

I didn't try to get an exact scale match because I couldn't find the data. I
just estimated, by what looked good.  The fin apex at the root I did
measured 1.125" from top to bottom. I beveled all the edges for a tight
seam. The tip will size itself naturally.

Someone mentioned the angle was 62 degrees - I'm not sure about that but it
works out to about the same as mine.

Hope that helps,

Jerry
