What is PROJECT...?

Something to go higher...

Something to go faster...

Something to go further...

You will all have to wait and see ;-)

I have no idea of the size or design but I think I might know the motor you are planning to use Blake.... :wink:

I reckon Blake has somehow secretly managed to get hold of one of those strange motors that don't have black powder in them, I think they use something called ACPC or something, It would have to be something special, I mean it might even be an F but I have no idea how you would need this amount of power!

soOoOoOo... it has been some time, but discussions are still happening for WHAT IS PROJECT.

Still keeping it under wraps at the moment, but fingers crossed we should see some pics early next year. A few may be privy to tidbits of info, but all I can say is, when you see this for real, WOW!!

p.s. yeah OK, so a crapload of E-9's may have been done before, but gotta burn them somehow to make sure people get into AP ;-) haha

A quick sneak preview

Very cool indeed!

David showed me his fins at the weekend, and I must say I was stunned by how light the rear fins are. We were trying to determine what the forward fins were made of. I thought they felt like titanium, but couldn't be sure... they certainly felt heavier than aluminium. Any ideas?
