Exclamation New Plan -- Sol Prix Racer

OK, folks, this is what we've been waiting for! A RockSIM V9 design!

I downloaded the V9 BETA software, and (in spite of some beta clutziness) I was able to work right in to this design without much difficulty. Some of the functionality of the program remains to be "fleshed out" -- right now, you cannot 'Ctrl-C copy' or 'Ctrl-V paste', and the custom fin editor is in need of some repair. But I think it's enough to get started.

You will need to download the beta (if it is publicly available, that is) to look at the RKT file, as this design incorporates the new "pods" feature. I LIKE PODS!

Length: 24.28"
Diameter: 1.04" (ST-10)
Fin Span: 7.24"
Weight: 1.76 oz

A8-3......132'......Dv 21 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B4-4......306'......Dv 22 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B6-4......310'......Dv 18 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-5......648'......Dv 28 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod (reef the chute)

This design probably needs some additional tweaking to reduce the Dv numbers, but it will fly as-is.
