Future Star Specs:
Wing: 800mm span 
Canard: 550mm span 
Overall Length:  800mm

Weight: 2lbs.
Thrust to weight ratio: 1.5 / 1

Endurance: 15-25 min.

Motors: 2 x E-flite Park 370 1360kv brushless 

ESC's: 2X 25 amp brushless 

Props: 1 8X6E and 1 8X6P  APC thin electric (counter rotating inwards at top) 

Servos: 4 x  E-Max ES3103E (2 for elevons, 1 for release mechanism, 1 for Rocket motor igniter). 

Rocket motors:  1 to 5  Estes C6-3 cartridges

Future Star is built from :
1-16" balsa sheet, 
1/4" inch balsa sheet,
1/8" lite ply
3/8 x 3/8 balsa stock (rectangular, and triangular)
1 strip of 500mm X 7mm X 1.2mm carbon fiber

1 cross-weave carbon tube 18mm x 20mm x 75mm (optional - for rocket motor)

(bracing for the inboard vertical tail/motor nacelles)
Future Star requires a computer radio with elevon mixing, end point adjustments, expo settings, and 3-5 channels.

Future Star is a Tandem-Wing / Lifting Body aircraft, with very unique characteristics. It is inherently stable, and can recover from any attitude by itself in about 2-3 seconds, without need for a flight stabilization system.

It can fly Hands-off, and is easy to keep in the air, requiring very little effort from the pilot. 

It can simply be steered around the sky with the Aileron control, like an RC car. 

It will resist excessive bank  and pitch angles. If you ask it to, it will execute rolls, and other aerobatic maneuvers. When you want to stop, all you have to do is let go of the controls, set the throttle to about 50%, and the aircraft will recover on it's own to straight and level flight.

Unlike other rocket powered planes, Future Star 

has electric propulsion. After experimentation with a new rocket motor, it can continue it's flight, and land in a safe manner. It can execute a Go-Around, instead of committing to a high speed landing with a high rate of descent. (normal for other experimental lifting bodies, and rocket planes).  It's a stable, yet high performance platform for Rocket powered flight!

Gemini Prototype Specs:

​Wing: Span 3.5 Meters NACA 4412, 12%
Endurance: 3hrs+
Distance: 120km+ (LINEAR) 

Speed:  40 - 70kph

Ceiling: Unknown
Empty weight: 6 LBS
Gross weight: 18LBS
Motors: 2X E-Flite power 15 brushless out runners

Props: 13 X 8 or 13 X 6 (counter rotating inwards at top)
Servos: 4X HS:225MG (also, 4X 260 Deg. digital servos for air brakes/split flaps)  

Construction: Balsa, spruce, Basswood, and carbon fiber. (for advanced builders only)

The Prototype design is optimized for cruise flight, with 

​a thinner airfoil than the V-2, and although it recovers very quickly from a stall, and is difficult to stall, it does not have the soft stall characteristics that the V-2 airfoil provides.

 It is also designed uncompromisingly for the ultimate in spiral stability, as well as stability in all3 axis' independently.

Spiral stability means, that when trimmed, it will not diverge on it's flight path trajectory over the ground, and if an outside force such as wind shear, (turbulence) acts on it, it will self correct it's heading to the original heading before the upset. This is a huge advantage  when flying for many hours, as you can let the plane fly itself on a heading, not touching the controls for up to 15 minutes at a time. with only a few degrees of divergence from the original course. It's almost like having an autopilot on board. Cruise flight is where the Prototype really shines.

The V-2 is built on the same principles of spiral stability, however, it has been compromised slightly  for practicality, in this particular characteristic.  

The Split flaps allow the prototype to descend at very steep angles without gaining excessive airspeed, a handy feature for returning to earth after a high altitude flight.

​Build time for the prototype is quite high, so it is not recommended for commercial applications. For that, the V-2 is a much more practical aircraft, and build time is a fraction of the prototype. 

Many people still purchase the Prototype plans, with a view to combing the features of the prototype with their V-2 build, and using them for other aircraft. Still others  build it as-is, just because it looks so cool!
THIS IS AN ADVANCED AIRCRAFT, AND NOT INTENDED FOR BEGINNERS! 

​(We recommend the Gemini Version 2 for most builders, however, due to popular demand, the prototype plans are still available).
