The answer is YES.
I move on to.

What motors will this rocket fly on? .. In this case A,B,C prefect
What is it's maximum altitude . Just about a 1000' perfect. ( I like to be able to see my rockets for lift off to recovery/ landing)

What is the FPS at apogee ... In this case all motors used are less that 7 FPS perfect.

So I would say Jay..You Have a Winner.
Thanks John! It feels awful lonely to post a design here and get NO comments. (sad look)

I mean, I don't think I've "got it all down," even with the Semroc release of my Tau Zero design. (Thanks, Carl!) So anything constructive that *anybody* wants to say is *greatly* appreciated.

FWIW, I *do* have an alternate "tube fin" variation that broke the current version of RockSim, so hopefully Paul Fossey is making at least some progress on fixing that.

Glad you like it, John! Thanks for your comments!
