Exclamation New Plan -- Cloud Seeker

OK, not really a high-flying design, but it sounded good...

Borrowing some from the J-Loader and some from the recent Esquire, we have the Cloud Seeker. I'm really impressed with the performance of the A8-3 in this design, both in the altitude and Dv fields. All of the posted numbers are to be considered "no payload" flights, so if you choose to add a payload of some sort, you'll have to re-sim with that mass included.

Length: 18.65"
Diameter: 1.04" (ST-10)
Fin Span: 3.78"
Weight: 0.73 oz

A8-3......255'......Dv < 2 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B4-4......445'......Dv 13 FPS.......36" x 1/8" rod
B6-4......450'......Dv 16 FPS.......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-3......795'......Dv 27 FPS.......36" x 1/8" rod (reef the parachute!)

Enjoy!
