Exclamation New Plan -- Aggressor

This design may have just uncovered another flaw. Someone tell me how likely it is to get a 3.2 oz model to 655' on a single C6-5...

Here's the Aggressor, one of the sketches from November, which is an extreme asymetrical rocket. I call it the "ice sled in space"...

Length: 25.68"
Diameter: 1.04" (ST-10)
Fin Span: 17.69"
Weight: 3.2 oz

B6-4......267'......Dv 20 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-5......655'......Dv 16 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod

The margin is 1.57 on the B6-4, and 1.24 on the C6-5. It took a 1/8 oz mass in the forward section to get it to balance properly. I think this is yet another issue...

I'll be sending bug reports to TVM and PF shortly...

Otherwise, Enjoy!
