Did you see the group of performers on bicycles at the Blackheath Kite and Bike Festival this year? They were absolutely sublime.

I'm just having a vision of a well known team flying their routine whilst riding unicycles. I think I need to go and lie down now! :blink:

Today I added in Category K (4 Corners).
It is a bit complicated and also has some bugs that I will correct very shortly. For the moment I will crash as I am a bit tired
The back buttons are not returning you to the correct place, thus it is best for the moment to use the browser back feature.

It appears that I now have all the bugs out of Category K.

I have run into a problem of linking .swf files together over the internet. A separate program would have to be run in either Windows or Linux to do this.
I would need my own private server to install a program such as this, because it wouldn't be allowed with a commercial Server such as GoDaddy.
To top it off, this is a command line program.
I am still looking for an alternative.
Remember, these are .swf files which are very very small. These files could be converted to .mov or other format which will become large files. With this, there are more options.
For the moment I am using swfcombine for this which means if you want a specific sequence, you would have to ask me to do it for you or you could install swfcombine and do it yourself.
As far as I can determine swfcombine is not for MAC. However you could "try" to go into the command line environment of MAC, which is Unix and try to install the Linux version and see if it works.
I sometimes have random access to a MAC, but I don't believe this would be permitted.

I have created a complete maneuver of all the Category K elements.
It is at the bottom of Category K.

Great work John... <grins>

I must re-visit the sketch I did which switched to a diagonal return followed by a 16 block rotation to complete the sequence.

Sorry, we are have a network issue at the moment. The network is very sporadic.

The way I understand this is that the outer red groups will rotate ACW while moving inward in a straight path as designated by the green arrow ending up in their original position being the circled blue.
This could be a interpreted as a group bicycle rotation to the center.
Ouch!!!!!!

What is confusing is the ACW rotation shown in the blue. Is that and additional all groups rotation?

The top blue circle shows the original position of the four blocks. The bottom blue circle indicates a 16 block rotation back to the grid.

Maybe! <grins>

Do you mean a spiral inward rotation?

I didn't but there is that possibility!

I thought, fly the blocks in straight to hit the 16 Diamond, and then 'rotate'.

Just for clarity, the turns for each of the four blocks were envisaged as 'parallel' not 'following'.

And then, slightly off topic, (EDIT but in response to the alliteration) I think we should fly to a tune (from Trout Mask Replica) by Captain Beefheart who sadly passed away just recently.

I met with Don and his wife Jan when he did an exhibition in London many years ago.

A colleague and I joined them at their hotel to drink 'bottled Guiness'. A precious memory!

RIP

Yesterday there was a bit of cleanup where the "Back button" was not returning you to where you came from.
Then I added in the start of Category "J"
I couldn't upload until today because of Network issues.

For those who have not been following all of this, it is in Reference to the Super 16 Web Site at:

Take a look at this:
http://www.johnnmitc...mate/KV2KQ.html
You can also call it from Category K.
The red circle rotate in the last sequence of your sketch didn't seem to work in order to get back to the original position.
Maybe you could clarify how much of an ACW you were thinking of there.

Enjoy!

Ok here is what I was thinking. I'm not sure about the wraps but I think that a partial rotation in the groups ABCD would be sufficient to get back to the start point if required.
