I think it probably makes more sense to put all of these videos into a single thread, rather than create a new one each time he posts a new video. Right now they're spread all over the place.

...and that Hazegrayart guy, whoever he is, is of the hyperactive, hyper-productive kind. He churns those little CGI gems at a rate of one every three weeks, average.

I love his Youtube channel. I'm like a kid on Christmas day. So many RLV concepts, flawed or not, flying in CGI.

So I am a bit puzzled by the first stage cluster. If I'm interpreting his images correctly, the center engine in each booster has been removed so that instead of 20 F1s there are only 16. Considering that for the real Saturn V the center engine is what was providing the liftoff thrust (the other 4 were just balancing out the weight of the rocket) it seems like there'd be a lot of gravity losses. I don't see it clearing the tower as quickly as the video depicts, either.

Thoughts, anyone?

Other than that, this might be my favorite lego rocket.

There was a never ordered 4 F1 engine variant that served several LEO proposals particularly via the planned F1A. Its design provided some design guidance for SLS in its early design trade studies.

You have been fooled by Hazegreyart's attention to detail! 
Look closer:  each of those saturn first stages have 5 F1s.  The shot you are thinking of shows it just before first stage burnout.  The middle engines are shut down early to reduce loads on the vehicle, this is the same as on the Saturn V.

I once thought the same, but as you see above, each of these threads generates a lot of enthusiastic and knowledgeable comments from each video that would get lost or confusing if I just use one thead.

OK, thanks.. That explains it.
