Rob Edmonds' "Arcie-II" R/C B/G KITS
Rob's AOL site is gone, the above link is to the Internet Archive

Single channel laser-cut kits. A good way to get into R/C RBG's. Long pop-pod lets it boost itself on D12 powered flights.

Doug Gard 's I powered R/C X-15

All-composite 5-channel X-15 model which uses water ballast for CG compensation and after gliding around ejects twin 72" chutes for landing. Check the RetroFlight web page for more details and photos.

George's 1/60 scale piggyback orbiter. Uses rudder, elevator, and R/C sep. Special booster has 32mm (G12) engine mount, twin ventral fins (to prevent yaw/roll coupling), and noseweight. Twin halfshells on the booster, against orbiter belly, contain chutes that deploy when the orbiter is separated.

New models of George's in 1992: Raven-7 (60" span F-G reload powered design by Bob Parks flew on G R/G at NARAM-34), 1/60 Orbiter on booster before painting/markings, and Astro-Blaster.

Ed LaCroix boosting A Sweet Vee on E12J 24mm RC reload. Also notable is the use of a foot operated firing system (popularized by the Chicago S8E fliers), Ed launched his own model.

1980 R/C Boost Glider with various pop-pods.Big long heavy pods make for more ballistic boosts for easier learning.
