Well sure. Some parts utilized in this design have been around since the 80's...arguably since the birth of HPR! Some features of this Woosh-exclusive are "Firsts" however for a Loc release; making it a bit "special" and unique. We'll see if it makes it into the real world as a formal the meantime this is a special small run release for the Woosh Org.

The intent of the design is a low cost rocket that can be built easily, catering to a myriad of rocketeers that fall under the Woosh umbrella. Flyable at Class 1 waiver-less events due to its light weight, yet strong enough to handle Level 1 motors without reinforcement, and Level 2 motors with a bit of reinforcement. Versatility is the key word; not too unlike many USR offerings.

There is only so much you can do with a trapezoidal fin planform after-all!
