Exclamation New Design -- Avante

Avante draws upon the old Saturnian and Starship Excalibur designs from the DOM / EIRP sheets. The design uses PODS, so it's a RS9-only file. The fins come from the Estes Star Dart, with the fin file coming from JG's file database contribution. Fin size is 1X. The pods themselves have been trimmed of mass, to about 3/4 of what they would be, since about 1/4 of the NCs and BTs are removed.

Only the B4-4 and B6-4 are recommended for standard 36" x 1/8" rods. The A8-3 needs a little too much rod, and the C6-7 (not the -5!) has a 30+ FPS deployment V. The -5 was even higher...

B4-4......423'......Dv 8 FPS
B6-4......435'......Dv 13 FPS
