Exclamation New Plan -- Pathfinder

Another "Schoolyard Sounder"...

Taking the cue from our fin shape discussions, this design is a simple 3FNC with matching canards. I wanted something along the lines of the old Estes Aerobee, but with better styling. I also wanted it to be flown with 13mm motors, in keeping with my small-field-capable theme.

Skill Level 1...

Length: 15.5"
Diameter: 0.908" (ST-8)
Fin Span: 3.91"
Weight: 0.85 oz

1/2A3-2T......799 FPS/S......140'......21 FPS......36" Rod
A10-3T.......1433 FPS/S......350'......16 FPS......36" Rod
A3-4T.........562 FPS/S......365'......12 FPS......36" Rod

Enjoy!
