Exclamation New Design -- 0.56X Centuri Aero-Dart

Here's the second ST-10 downscale I dug up from 09 Sept 2006. This is a 0.56X version of Lee Piester's Aero-Dart design, again with really good performance at this scale. (IIRC, I e-mailed these to Carl McLawhorn 2.5 years ago, and he said, "I never would have thought of downscaling those two.")

I did these two downscales because I *really* liked the lines of the Hustler and the Aero-Dart, but thought that their original scales were just a little too big for my tastes. Add that to the fact that the Centuri ST-10 body tube has seemed like "just about the right size," in my original go-around as a rocketeer (as well as during my current sentence), and there you go.
