Default New Design -- Sort Of...

Folks,

Here's a good reason to use RockSim when designing your models. I just got my RS8 back up, and worked out the basic plan for "Shooting Star".

Check out the attached screenshot. Note the Dv numbers...

The good news is, it reaches safe flight V on a 36" standard rod.

More work to be done before this sketch is flight ready...
