But what really caught my eye was Delta 7 Studio's Rosie Retrorocket. Rosie sure is cute, but her stability would be questionable without clear fins and a lot of nose weight.
Over the years, I've converted several free paper models for flight:
- Currell Graphics Airship R-100 - At 11' long and 2.25" in diameter, this model didn't fly so well on MicroMaxx power. It flew better on a 13mm A10 but, since it had no recovery system, didn't survive the landing. RIP.
- Cards in Space Little Joe I - This model flies well on 13mm motors.
- The Matchhead XL-5 is the smallest member of my Fireball XL-5 fleet. It flies well on MicroMaxx, although it is a little on the heavy side. Unfortunately the source link is dead.
- Delta 7 Studios Mercury Redstone - At 11.75" x 0.75", this respectably sized MicroMaxx model is one of my best fliers.
- Currell Graphics SpaceShipOne - This is another dog of a flier. If you build one, put in a 13mm mount!
