Exclamation Revised plan -- Mystique

The original file for this design is dated 5-1-2006. That means it was started using a late RS7 or early RS8. It shows. The model, when simulated in RS9, was highly unstable and needed lengthening, ballasting, and some additional fin area. The flight specs are not bad, now, and at least one engine gets seriously good numbers all-around.

I think the new version looks much better, too...

Length: 29.550"
Diameter: 1.340" (ST-13)
Fin Span: 6.423"
Weight: 4.2 oz

Launch rod: 48" x 3/16"

D12-5........905'......Dv 25 FPS
D15-6T......1078'......Dv 7 FPS
E18-8W......2088'......Dv 10 FPS
