Multi Motor Design
Will the owner / creator and/or modifier
please goto poll thread
and claim your winner.
This will have no impact on your contest status.
I need a set of Official Contest Guide Lines for each category.
Hummmm how do we keep him on rally and
meet a deadline 72 hours from close of this poll?
He may call for volunteers.
This will have no impact on their contest status.
The poll thread is your workspace for such purpose.
I suggest, create a central post (one for each cat) then edit back to it.
Please keep all ‘cat’ posts on poll thread.
You guys will have FULL and FINAL SAY until I copy and paste (not edit) your camera-ready document to the official 2008 Contest Guidelines. I will then assume responsibility for said document, take owner and volunteer off the hook, and announce start date.
We have less than 72 hours before the fun begins

To quail future flapX ;

2) I see no reason to limit number of models entered in this contest.
3) I see no reason to restrict one or more models entered in more than one category.
4) My lawyer advised;
all published material associated with this contest becomes his.
Think I need a new lawyer?
No, I doubled his retainer.

Will there be a best of show 2008? Seems like there should be one chosen from among the five winners. Bob
Yes, for sure!

So, where is the Thread for " Most Original " ?
I have officially started the Development Phase of My " X1 Death Adder UAV "
I started cutting the fuselage out of ready board from Dollar Tree making the Rib sections for rigid strength to the body.. taping everything I cut and taking measurements.. When I'm comfortable with how it all fits... I will modify my original plans to fit the development. I will then take it apart piece by piece and re cut out of Bluecor fan fold 1/4 in.
I have never done this Foamy stuff.. hell I have never flown an RC Plane and here I am throwing my luck at actual RC flight.. Developing an out standing design if I may say so..
It looks like something Skunk Works would be making for our troops..
You will see.... Hopefully, I can pull this off and finish it on time..
But, Where is the Thread I'm entering this thing in..?
We will consolidate here on this thread.
I apologize and accept responsibility for the bouncing-ball concept (Growing Pain # 101).
Thanks for the help guys.

Heavest Paylod guide lines….
This will in no way impact you or anyone’s contest status.
IF you choose, I will launch contest thread, either way you may enter this or any other category or all the above.
IF the hounds bark up my backside again I will assume this cat and off we go no problem.
Thanks again guys for all the help.
