Exclamation New Plan -- Nike-Deacon / Nike-Cajun

So, here's my interpretation for the full-up vehicle. I'm only single-staging this one, for simplicity, and the results still look good enough for me to build and fly happily...

(Corrected model specs)

Length: 31.68"
Diameter: 1.80" (Transition, to ST-16)
Fin Span: 6.00"
Weight: 1.82 oz

B4-4......333'......Dv 15 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B6-4......339'......Dv 12 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-5......755'......Dv 13 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod

As mentioned, this represents a Nike-Ajax M5 booster, with the same Deacon or Cajun upper stage as in the single-stage design earlier. I just removed the motor mount parts and the recovery parts (and the launch lug).

If I'm wrong on some of the dimensions, I can make corrections. I think these are very close even now...
