                                  • Thanks! That makes me smile! It was quite the project!! I built a X-34 to drop from her as the "mother ship". This went through many prototypes and this was the final flying version. It is pink foam from Home Depot and covered with heat shrink film... Uses an "E" size Estes model rocket motor for boost, then glide to land... Will find the pics...

                                    • X-34 that dropped from the L1011. I drew the plans from Internet drawings and a 1/72 scale plastic model. It used HS-55 servos and an electronic ignition for the rocket motor...

                                      • I miss my Estes rockets I still have my launch pad and accessories from my childhood. I may have to get some supplies and do that again. I remember building a large rocket with a smaller glider that was held on with a peg in a hole that would come off and glide down when the parachute charge went off. That's just too cool to do that on a RC plane.

                                          Thatís awesome Hardway! Looks perfect, and that L1011 is a beast! I did a rather amateur version of the same concept to test my college senior design project (reusable air launched lifting body) a few years ago.
