All,

I have run all of the PUNK series through RockSim tonight, and finally proved to myself that these rockets are as stable as I felt they should have been. They are, so I'm going to post the RKT files here for everyone to take a look at.

For those who may not remember the Punks, they're a series of simple 4FNC models that stay about the same height, but are each larger in diameter than the one before. The phrase I used to describe them was "Punks -- They don't grow up, they just GROW!"

These will make great flyers for just getting into the air quickly without a lot of breakable fiddly bits. All but the largest one use streamers for recovery. They are all reasonably good performers, too, with one having a 1600' service ceiling.
