Ah, wasn't that all computer generated animation?

A simple search of the web would have told you it is in fact real.

I keep telling people to put the stop watch away and fly the airplane where it is happy.   I have planes with B-40 flying on any where from 60 to 65 foot lines.   If the plane feels comfortable to you on the lines you are using great.   If it feels too fast try longer lines, too slow shorter lines.   Once the plane flies the way you like, then time it.   I was flying my Ringmaster Imperial on 65 X .015 lines with LA 46 and was happy with it but was told it was too fast at 4.6 second laps.  Before that it was 68 foot lines and was not a comfortable flight.   Guess it must be some of the old combat stuff still in me.

When installing a new ring  in an old cylinder sometimes you don't get a good ring seal. and the engine will need another sleeve or a very tight ring after more honing,
Is your 28 a standard or Dykes ring engine?
How used is the sleeve ?
What is the gap, new  on the  ring?

     There's nothing too special there, the "re-entry" heating is not terribly significant. Basically they are dropping in from a dead stop at 62 miles. You could make a back-of-the-envelope calculation assuming no drag until it gets to about 30 miles. I get about 3500 fps which would not generate too much heat load.
     The capsule does seem to hit pretty hard. Most of those intended to land on solid ground had either big airbags or terminal braking rockets like the Russians. And they all had contour couches with shock absorbers. Mercury even had an airbag for splashing down in the water.


I think the intention here was to spend the money on the rocket braking and stabilization system and the necessary controls to make that function.  The capsule is likely still "putty".
